Booklovers, have you ever started reading a book with a story or characters that resonate so deeply you don’t want to read it too fast? For me Erin Morgenstern has done exactly that with The Night Circus.
What’s it about you may wonder? Hmmm, I’d say. Then I’d have to pause and think for a minute because it’s an unusual story steeped in magic and quirky characters and ultimately a circus that is only open at night and filled with impossible delights. There’s a mysterious challenge between opponents who are not aware of each other’s identity. All wrapped in a velvet cloak of a love story. It’s a black and white striped world filled with explosions of vivid color and life.
I’m savoring The Night Circus a couple short chapters at a time, it’s lasted me two weeks so far! I’ll let you know if I’m as enamored with the ending as I am of the beginning.Intrigued? I hope so!
