I really liked this book because it was just very beautiful. All the descriptions were incredibly detailed and gorgeous. I could really picture the circus in my mind, both in physicality and in atmosphere. I also liked that I didn't know how the book was going to end ahead of time; it kept me guessing, and I felt the tone of the end fit with the rest of the book in its slightly mystical quality. My only issue was that by the end I was more invested in Poppet, Widget, and Bailey than Celia and Marco, but I felt like the Circus itself was supposed to be the main character of the book and was so well done. (Also, I want ALL OF THE CLOTHES) ( )

I really enjoyed this book but I did not pay enough attention to the dates in the beginning of the chapters, so my chronology got screwed up in my head. It took me about a third of the book to really get in the groove and understand thought because I find that method of story telling, from several points of view, difficult for me to follow. I've always preferred the linear timeline with one narrator...and this jumps around in time from different points of view. That's my only complaint and that's more of a personal preference than a criticism.

I did really love the circus, though. It seemed so real and vivid and I believe it's existence so much by the end of the book, that I probably wouldn't have been surprised to see it pop up in my neighborhood one day. ( )

Some part of this book were ok but I found most of it boring and tedious to get through. I know its popular but like...?? I just wasnt into it. It didnt help that I was thoroughly uninvested in the primary romance of the book. I didnt get why they even liked each other aside of being physically attracted. Also the guy was a jerk with almost no personality. ( )
  mutantpudding | Dec 26, 2021 |
This had so much promise for me. I have a thing for circuses, magic, black and white things, and twins, but......a lot of it fell a little flat. Hear me out, I liked parts of it; the cover is fantastic, the circus itself was awesome, but the whole "duel" and the love story (which is supposed to be the center of the book) didn't quite live up to my expectations. The beginning drew me in, but the author's writing style had me bored after a while and this took a lot longer to read than I would have thought. I had no problem putting it down for a while, I didn't connect with the characters very much. There was too much jumping around with time, I kept having to think about how old everyone was, what had already happened, what hadn't yet at the beginning of like every little chapter.

The "love story" was bullshit. It just was. I am not a romantic by any means, I kind of go out of my way to avoid romance stories in novels, so I was already a little biased I guess, but reading other reviews, I'm not alone in this. They didn't even speak to each other for like 30 some years, then they do, and they're all in this epic romance and willing to die for each other. It doesn't even happen until practically the last 60 pages or so, out of 300 . There simply isn't enough of them together to believe any of it, so when the final ending did happen, I kinda didn't care.

The things I liked about this book were the twins and the circus. I cared and was more interested in them than the other characters. I would have rather focused on them. But even with them, things fell flat. There was just too much, I don't think the author really knew what she wanted to focus on. It was an interesting read, if you've got a thing for circuses, its worth a read I guess, but I regret buying it, I wish I had just rented it from the library. ( )

Couldn't get into it and it had to go back to the library. I have a hard time with books written in present tense.

Morgenstern’s wonderful novel is made all the more enchanting by top-notch narration from the incomparable Jim Dale.
 
I am a reader who should have hated this novel; yet I found it enchanting, and affecting, too, in spite of its sentimental ending. Morgenstern's patient, lucid construction of her circus – of its creators and performers and followers – makes for a world of illusion more real than that of many a realist fiction. There is a matter-of-factness about the magicians' magic, a consistency about the parameters of the circus world, that succeeds both in itself and as a comment upon the need for and nature of illusion in general. While the novel's occasional philosophical gestures seem glib ("You are no longer quite certain which side of the fence is the dream"), the book enacts its worldview more satisfyingly than could any summary or statement. Rather than forcing its readers to be prisoners in someone else's imagination, Morgenstern's imaginary circus invites readers to join in an exploration of the possible.
 
Underneath the icy polish of her prose, Morgenstern well understands what makes The Night Circus tick: that Marco and Celia, whether in competition or in love, are part of a wider world they must engage with but also transcend. It’s a world whose mystique and enigma is hard to shake off, and that invites multiple visits.
 
The Night Circus is one of those books. One of those rare, wonderful, transcendent books that, upon finishing, you want to immediately start again.
 
The book itself looks beautiful but creaky plotting and lifeless characters leave The Night Circus less than enchanting

Follow your dreams, Bailey, she says. Be they Harvard or something else entirely. No matter what that father of yours says, or how loudly he might say it. He forgets that he was someone's dream once himself.
Children are dragged away with promises that they may return the next evening, though the circus will not be there the next evening and later those children will feel slighted and betrayed.
You are no longer quite certain which side of the fence is the dream.
I do not like being left in the dark. I am not particularly fond of believing in impossible things.
You're not destined or chosen, I wish I could tell you that you were if that would make it easier, but it's not true. You're in the right place at the right time, and you care enough to do what needs to be done. Sometimes that's enough.
