I love stories that make my mind go fizzy, that opens me up again to the possibilities of anything and everything.

The Night Circus very aptly did this in droves. What a beautifully crafted story. I am glad I listened to it on audio; I don't know that it would have hit in quite the same way. ( )

A magical romance set in the center of a circus full of wonders between two dueling magicians and their apprentices.

The descriptions of the fantastical magical creations of the two apprentices, Celia and Marco, are beautiful. There is a playful surrealism to their work and yet the dark reality of what is going on and what the circus hides is suspenseful.

The romance between Celia and Marco is the stuff of legends and many fall in love with the story through them.

The ending while tinged with some sadness ultimately brings the circus and all the characters full circle. ( )

Blog review: https://trishadoeseverythingbutstudy2.wordpress.com/2020/12/31/my-october-in-boo...

Well, I didn't hate it, but it was a close thing.

The main problem with this book is that it's f*cking long. It might not be the longest book I've read (hello Priory Of The Orange Tree which I preferred to this one), but it was just long.

The writing is beautiful. No doubt of it. But it requires you to be paying complete attention, which is not possible for me if I'm already bored by the nothing-makes-any-sense-right-now. You need to be reading between the lines, and then between the lines you've already read between, so it's just so complicated. Half of the time I was like, do I even know this character? Where did you come from? Aren't you supposed to be a teenager? Aren't you already born? Where are half the characters? Do I know you, or are you another one of the characters I've already confused with another? What does that mean? What does that mean? Is that character dead? Did I miss a few chapters or something?

It's like if you skip two words in a sentence, and you have to keep scratching your head trying to figure out whether you've heard of that word or not. I'm seriously glad I had the ebook, so I could search for a phrase that was supposed to be important.

After you get past all the confusion, this book is really good. Like some of the best fiction I've ever read. I liked the romance, but not as much as I should have. I mainly just loved Bailey's perspective, because that was making the most sense to me, probably because that was the only perspective where a single character was not present in multiple timelines.

I have this problem, I miss chapter titles. It's an unconscious habit, but I always skip chapter titles, since I'm really focused on the story. In this book, that habit came back to bite me. The problem, you see, is in the fact that years, are only mentioned in chapter titles. So, you miss the chapter title, you're fumbling around for quite a while, trying to figure out why something hasn't already happened.

The reason this got 3 stars instead of two, was that ending. Not the last chapter, that one was okay, but I loved the chapter before last.The one with Widget being the one telling the story, and that too to Alexander(I think). I had goosebumps throughout that chapter, and the ones before that one too. The relighting, the Marco and Celia finally having a happy ending; I was really close to crying.

Overall a nice book. Just not for me to love. I recommend it to people who have lots of patience, can keep track of multiple timelines, do not get confused easily, can read between the lines, can infer stuff not said, but understood, and who like beautiful writing that paints wonderful pictures in your head.

I wish this story was about four times as long. I wanted to see more context and progress in the time jumps between different portions of the story. It was tough for me to follow or care about the overall progress of the plot when the scenes were presented so much out of order. ( )

Oh man, I liked this book so much. The descriptions and the characters and the storytelling, in general, made me very happy. it reminded me of [b:The Bear and the Nightingale|25489134|The Bear and the Nightingale|Katherine Arden|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1470731420s/25489134.jpg|45268929] in the way it was told - vivid descriptions and lots of characters which were slowly revealed. I got a little choked up when the last words were spoken simply because it was over.

I did have a hard time keeping the years straight at some points but toward the last third of the book or so, I figured out that I needed to pay closer attention to it and then I was good to go.

Beautiful book. ( )

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

A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.

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.
