The Night Circus
The circus arrives without warning.
No announcements precede it...
It is simply there, when yesterday it was not.
The Night Circus is an elaborate twist of stories and experiences around an assortment of mysterious black-and-white striped circus tents.
Elegant yet concerning, Erin Morgenstern can lure you into a world of blinding lights and melancholy magic that we have all yearned after. It is woven together quite professionally, leaving only a few loose ends to straggle behind. Erin’s work can be a litte dully written at times, but the ideas she unfurls through her storyline will linger in her reader’s minds forever.
Although I enjoyed its whimsical drama, I couldn’t help but view The Night Circus as an Enid Blighton style children’s book with bits of adult concepts and mature language wedged between the lines. Characters trundled in and out of the storyline in a confusing crumble of extravagent names and half-developed faces, and I began to feel a little sleepy as I endured too many hastily-written chapters.
Although, like all books, this one has its flaws, The Night Circus is a rarely-discovered and unique book that appeals to the child in all of us.
