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