|The Night Circus - Erin Morgenstern|
It's been a while since I began reading a book and really didn't want to put it down. I remember this being one of Alex's picks when she went to the reading spa at Mr B's and ever since then I'd been meaning to ask if I could borrow it. Finally, I got around to it and I'm glad that I did.
The Night Circus is exactly what it says it is. A circus, made up of spiralling tunnels linking a maze of tents, each housing a different wonder. It opens at nightfall and closes at dawn, according to the sign which arrives with the circus.
Little do the visitors know that there is a war going on between two of the most powerful enchanters in the history of the magical world. The night circus provides the perfect war zone for the game to be played, although it is never made clear exactly what this game involves. Only one of the players is aware they are even playing a game, and she doesn't know who her competitor is.
Nevertheless, amidst the confusion, the magical world draws you in with great success and the book kept me enthralled right up to the end.
Have you read The Night Circus? What did you think? Reading anything great at the moment?
