The Next Big Thing – The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.
So reads part of the publisher’s description of a new novel of magical realism called The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. Called lush, imaginative, creative, wildly inventive and suspenseful (to name a few of the adjectives I saw most repeated), The Night Circus is generating a lot of buzz, and critics are wondering if it’s going to be the next Harry Potter or Twilight.
Personally, I find circuses scary enough even when not shrouded in mystery (all those clowns *shudder*), but it sounds intriguing. I look forward to reading it. I like magic.
If anyone has read it already, give us a clue in the comments of how you liked it and what it’s like.
