I swear, this book is magic. Truly magical and mysterious. The atmosphere of this book is one of a kind that I have never read in any other. When reading it, the only thing you want to wish for is for Le Cirque des Rêves to come close to where you live and to be able to visit all the wonderful tents it presents. In a way, you still get to visit it on your own because there are chapters written at the singular of the second person. I think these chapters were my favorite for all the book because it was the first time I ever read something like this and I found it verry original.

Another thing I found original in this book is the concept of the duel of magicians. I know, you might think « A duel of magician ? It feels like we’ve seen this so many times before !» But this kind of duel ? No, you haven’t. With the circus as a venue for the duel, it makes it so much more interesting because each magician tries to invent a tent or an aspect of the circus more wonderful then the other.

In conclusion, this book is wonderful and I recommend it to everyone who likes to have a little magic in there life once in a while.

Unexpected and intriguing, Erin Morgenstern has created a world within and around our world that forces you to admire the beauty of her story. 'The Night Circus' grabbed my imagination and held me until the last word with reachable characters painted with the perfect amount of mystery to keep you reading until the sun comes up. Clear your schedule for your first read- you won't want to do anything else. Can't wait for Morgenstern's next story!

This is one of the most beautifully written books I have ever read. It's a bit of a strange premise but the book sucks you in and makes you feel like you are completely within the story.

The Night Circus brings you into the midst of a universe of dreams. A place where the smell of caramel wafts through the air and the lights glow magically under the night sky, for the circus only takes place at night and no one knows when it will arrive or when it leaves. Every tent flap you lift brings you into a realm more enchanting than the next.

However all is not as magical as it seems behind the scenes of Le Cirque de Rêves, for the circus is only a platform for a duel being played out between two rivals. A duel that is a game of wits and imagination. From a young age Celia and Marcus have been trained by their respective masters for this challenge, however no one expected them to fall hopelessly in love with each other and from that moment on everything changes…

The Night Circus is simply amazing, a must read. I’m an avid reader and I read this book in 24 hours. This book is a page turner, once you start you won’t be able to put it down. A stellar debut novel for Erin Morgenstern. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars. Read this book, you won’t regret it!

The writing of this book is beautifully descriptive! I was immersed in the story right away and have even done my own sketches and paintings for certain scenes as they were so vividly and perfectly described.
