Book Review: The Night Circus

I finished reading The Night Circus last night and loved it!

The Night Circus

The story follows Le Cirque du Reves and the main characters are Marco and Celia, who involuntarily entered into a competition against each other many years before. There is also a sub plot about various founders of the circus and also a young American boy, Bailey.

Even though this book was not action packed, it was full of wonderful descriptions without being over descriptive. I also enjoyed the fact that although each chapter told you what year it was, there were no major historical details and this gave the story a very timeless feeling.

I also loved the book itself with its black edged pages and black and white cover, which was very inkeeping with the story.

I would highly recommend this book. It is a story of wonderful illiusions and a love story, but also catches your imagination with all of the beautiful descriptions in the book.
