The Night Circus

The Night Circus - A transcendent reading experience. One full of magic and wonder - and one that captures the experience of, say, a punchdrunk show. You end the experience wondering if it was a dream but not really caring: only wanting to know how you can go back. You want to exist inside this story. It is superbly written (even with a few quibbles, mostly about the ending being a bit "oh.") and it is a tour de force of imagination. I did not want it to end and yet couldn't stop racing towards the final moments. I want the circus to be real - because the world would, indeed, be better with that sort of magic in it.Quite a lot more thoughts and comparisons and musings and gushings over at Raging Biblioholism: http://ragingbiblioholism.com/2012/01/10/the-night-circus/(and make sure you get the excellent Spotify playlist to accompany your reading experience!!)
