Five Things About THE NIGHT CIRCUSOrdinarily when I do my recommendations I do a five reasons to read but I think opinions will be so divided on THE NIGHT CIRCUS that I think things about will be useful1 This novel is not what it says it is Well back page copy is always a weird thing anyway as it s not written by the author And a weirder thing because it is essentially a glamour shot of the novel It is not a lie But it isn t really what the novel looks like when it s wandering around in its bathrobe getting coffee and trying to figure out if that smell is coming from the kitchen sink disposal or under the table The resemblance is always a bit sketchy THE NIGHT CIRCUS resemblance to its cover copy is sketchier than most2 This novel is about a thing It has people in it too but it is mostly about a thing the eponymous circus It s told in third person omniscient which means it sounds like God is narrating the thing if God decided he really loved black and white tents and fancy umbrellas The voice that narrates this book is interested in humans too but mostly about how humans make the circus and the circus magic interesting3 This is not a romance There is a love story in it which is good because love makes the world go round but it is not a romance If you go in imagining to be swept off your feet from page one you can keep on imagining The novel starts before our lovebirds have hit puberty so you re going to have to imagine for uite awhile 4 The circus is not really a circus This is fine by me because I actually don t care for circuses They smell the animals always have that look of dubious maltreatment no I don t want to win a prize by shooting that thing off that other thing over there and also clowns look a little grubby to me No the Night Circus is a circus in the respect that there are tents and there are performers and some of them are acrobats Mostly it is a place where pretty pretty magic is passed off as illusion so that us muggles won t be scared by it I d go to that circus 5 This is not a thriller This is a not an action packed adventure It s not even a simmering revenge or bubbling rivalry novel It is a novel about a thing with love in it and it spans over a decade If you have a problem with that idea it s best you walk away now But if you like Ann Patchett or Audrey Niffeneggar novels or if you really thought JONATHAN STRANGE MR NORRELL was the bee s knees well WELL You have just found your next read Enjoy I did

Aw hell I m going to rate this 45 stars I can t resist this book was so freaking good I don t normally change my ratings so don t expect this TOO often My feelings are so conflicted about this book I don t know whether to immortalize it for all eternity in a frame on my wall or throw it into the fire So how the hell am I supposed to rate this book A million stars one star 837 stars what In the end I did some crazy overly complicated math that really makes so sense in my head and came out with four which I raised to 45 because I m such a weakling stars For the longest time during the book over two hundred and fifty pages I thought that I disliked this book for some very specific reasons but this is where the confusing part comes in so hang with me for a second once you get to the end you realize that you only thought you hated those parts and it was really all part of Morgenstern s brilliant planI know a few of you are probably giving me this look right nowDon t worry though I ll explain Let me start by saying that this is a book you definitely have to read twice The first time you really aren t going to understand all of the nuances and parts of this story until well until it s way too late That s something pretty special and rare about this book it reminds me a lot of Great Expectations in that way Let me try to elaborate with since I know you guys love this sooooo much a story Most books andor series that you read these days you pretty much know the whole plot sometimes even books before the TSTL character does and how it s going to end in a predicable sappy cheezy blah blah blah you ve read it a million times kind of ending sometimes even just a couple of pages into the novel In The Night Circus you really don t The plot strings start out so loosely that you can see little to no connection to them besides the two obvious ones with Marco and Celia You ve seen loose strings before in many a sloppy novel so you just dismiss out all of ones you deemed unimportant in your eyes and focus on Marco and Celia Wrong move You get and confused as the book goes on what s with all the other POVs and time jumps Really just a general what the hell is going on But that s not the truth while you re so eagerly and attentively looking at your two little strings Morgenstern brings all of those other little strings closerand closerand closer together until unbeknownst to you she starts weaving them in with Marco and Celia As I said you re still in the dark about most of it but you do notice that the book is getting better but don t realize until there s only about forty pages left that holy fucking shit your two little strings that you started out with is now a huge complicated rope but the book won t let you stop and analyze it It carries you forward in a wave of sheer awesomeness as you devour every page Then you get to the end of the book and your brain blows up It literally blows into a million billion little pieces all over wherever you re sitting as your cat crawls all over you and nips your ankles which is why I suggest you don t finish this book in a public place because you will be incapacitated for several minutes and look like an invalid image error

The Night Circus Summary é eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Erin Morgenstern ½ 8 Summary Read The Night Circus The circus arrives without warning No announcements precede it It is simply there when yesterday it was not Within the black and white striped canvas tents is an utterly uniue experience full of breathtaking amazements It is called Le Cirue des Rêves and it is only open at night But behind the scenes a fierce competition is underway a duel between two young magicians Celia. Wedding cakes are typically the prettiest cakes but they are almost never the tastiest cakes I am not a cake expert can I be one though Is that a thing I can be but it seems to me that the tools necessary to make a cake exceptionally pretty a vat of fondant to start also contribute to the cake not tasting all that good unless you somehow really like fondant which is incorrectDon t misunderstand me I have no issue with cake The right decorations the right frosting buttercream preferably chocolate the right consistency moist but not crumbly the right layering chocolate mousse it is a perfect example of a food that does one thing but does it very well And that s fineBut a gorgeous wedding cake covered in fondant and appliues is only gorgeous until you cut into it take a bit and realize hmmm It s pretty and all but you could do with a bit less artifice and a bit of the good stuff The cake partThe Night Circus is a wedding cake with fondant that goes nearly all the way down It is an exceptionally pretty cake captivating intensely visual ornate and delicately constructed with unruly swirls of back and white and surprising splashes of vivid red But what is underneath Oh there it is a little bit of cake way down at the bottom It s pretty good too Light airy a hint of chocolate and smoke But all that sculpted icing has lodged in your throat and it s kind of hard to swallowErin Morgenstern writes beautifully This is a book about dueling magicians and bewitching enchantments set in the Victorian age circus so you can probably imagine what you re going to read but she decorates her world remarkably well creating magical attractions that are lightly sketched allowing them to grow in your imagination I want to play in the vertical cloud maze and climb to the top and jump into a sea of wispy fluffBut good lord just re read that paragraph Magicians Victorian circus cloud maze sea of fluff Eye roll I ve read a few circus books and I should probably get it into my head that they are almost never for me because too much of this stuff can get to be a bit much Insufferably twee I might have commented Did I mention is is also a star cross d romance With achingly dippily sincere loversI mean whatever that s fine I can handle romance I can handle reading long elegant passages about the sets of various Tim Burton films Just give me a good storyBut I don t think this book has a very good story It is all setting tone establishing a mood The story just kind of sits there down at the bottom under all that decoration It isn t that interesting and certainly not an entirely stable foundation But maybe if it was jazzed up a bit Put some filler in there a framing device a needlessly fractured timeline Does that make it taste better Not really The additional flavors are nice enough They keep you eating reading anyway I can t remember if I am still talking about cakeNow for a paragraph that I won t be able to shoehorn into the strained theme of this review but it needs to be said nonetheless I don t like it when books about magic put zero parameters on what magic can do or how it is The magic in this book is unrestrained and excessive and after a while very boring to read about It powers the attractions at the Circus of Dreams but with no restraints the attractions can be literally anything So why was I yawning halfway through the act This book has received intense advance hype and it will probably be a huge seller Probably But I m not sure If I wanted to further stretch my metaphor I would point out that you buy cakes at Jewel all the time but you only buy a wedding cake once Addendum to Danielle Trussoni I found your blurb on the back of this book to be as uninspiring as your debut novel Do you really want to be the blurb whore who speaks of a book that is explicitly about magic with phrases like so magical there is no escaping its spell Also enchanting Also If you read just one novel this year this is it Really As long as it isn t your book I guess

    (EPUB) [The Night Circus] Contains some minor spoilersI disliked this book which means I ought to rate it one star but it is not as awful as my one star shelf One star books have to really repulse me to get that rating The only redeeming thing about The Night Circus is that I didn't feel the one star compulsion to start a bonfire so I could properly dispose of it hence two stars but in this case it does not mean I enjoyed the book at allFrom the Goodrea
