Very rarely do I find a book that I consider wanting to read for a second time. Although I'm not going to jump into it right now, I know that further down the line, I will want to revisit this magical story.

I LOVE this book! It's wonderful, magical, romantic, and has a plot where it isn't always focused on the main characters. Every character in this book is critical. If you take away any of them the book falls apart much like the circus itself.

I find myself thinking about this book even after being done with it. It stays with you. ( )

"The circus arrives without warning."
Celia has been left with her father, Prospero, after her mother dies. He is training her in magic, but not the kind of magic that you generally think of.
Marco is taken as a young boy and is being trained in such magic by a man in a grey suit.
What these two individuals do not realize is that they are going to be competing against each other in a life-altering contest with this magic.
They fall in love, without knowing that they are in battle with each other over their skills.
We are rewarded with much description of the circus itself and the many performers that appear in this circus. From contortionists to wishing trees, bonfires, etc.

This is a very well written book about the circus itself. You really wish that you were the one attending and seeing all the marvels. ( )

The Night Circus tells the story of a magical circus in the late nineteenth century that is masquerading as an extraordinary circus. While the public and indeed most of the performers believe the circus to be non-magical, the magical bits are maintained by two actual magic users. The first is Celia, the circus's illusionist, who masks her real magic as stage illusion. The second is Marco, the office manager, who runs the circus from behind the scenes. As the book proceeds, these two protagonists slowly realize that the circus came into being as a venue for an arcane duel by their magical mentors--with them as the duelists. Despite their feelings for each other, and the love of the circus for itself and not as a dueling ground, Celia and Marco find themselves unescapably bound to this duel. The narrative is split into three converging timelines, but I never found this confusing (though I did have to refer to the dates at times). I found a lot to love about this book, from the magically mysterious world of the circus to the well-written and likable characters that extend far beyond the two mains. Definitely recommended. ( )

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

“The finest of pleasures are always the unexpected ones.”
“People see what they wish to see. And in most cases, what they are told that they see.”
“Secrets have power. And that power diminishes when they are shared, so they are best kept and kept well. Sharing secrets, real secrets, important ones, with even one other person, will change them."
“Life takes us to unexpected places sometimes. The future is never set in stone, remember that.”
“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.”
