Debut novel by Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus, is a tale of magic and intrigue. It is set in the late 1800s and follow the lives and relationship of Celia and Marco. The circus is like no other and arrives unannounced and leaves in the same manner. But it only is open at night. The black and white tents house a myriad of acts and performers with talents well beyond the ordinary. Morgenstern writing is extremely descriptive, making it easy for the reader to imagine the Circus. In some ways it reminded me of Harry Potter. The Night Circus, was a wonderful read and would make a fascinating movie.
” It was like nothing he had ever seen. The lights, the costumes, it was all so different. As though he had escaped his ordinary life and wandered into another world.” From The Night Circus.
