The Night Circus, find there synopsis here, is a great story of magicians and the circus and love. Those three things make me really want to love love love this book but in the end I thought “Hm. Well, that was nice.” The characters were amazing, the descriptions of the circus were beautiful, and the overall story is a good one. But that doesn’t necessarily make me love the book. The story was quite drawn out for me and moved too slowly. Almost every other chapter alternated between past and present (or present and future?). If you have read The Time Traveler’s Wife, then you have seen this before where it makes sense and adds to the story. But I don’t think it did here. I think it only confuses the reader. Me. I was confused.
Also, I accomplished my 2011 goal to read 12 books! As you can see I’ve read more than that but I didn’t realize it until yesterday. Feel free to follow me on Goodreads.
