Product description

Review

"Magical. Enchanting. Spellbinding. Mesmerizing." --Associated Press

"Erin Morgenstern has created the circus I have always longed for and she has populated it with dueling love-struck magicians, precocious kittens, hyper-elegant displays of beauty and complicated clocks. This is a marvelous book." --Audrey Niffenegger, author of The Time Traveler's Wife

"Get ready to be won over. . . . Part love story, part fable, and a knockout debut. . . . So sparklingly alive, you'll swear the pages are breathing in your hands. . . .
The Night Circus defies both genres and expectations." --The Boston Globe

"A riveting debut.
The Night Circus pulls you into a world as dark as it is dazzling, fully-realized but still something out of a dream. You will not want to leave it." --Téa Obreht, author of The Tiger's Wife

"The Night Circus is the real deal, the kind of novel that will appeal to romantics, history buff, circus aficionados, mystery fans, and lovers of a good story. . . . Steeped in circus lore, filled with evocative scenes of magic and illusion, enriched by characters as varied as the clockmaker who crafted the circus's iconic timepiece . . . The Night Circus is worth staying up for." --Bookreporter

"One of the best books I have ever read." --Brunonia Barry, author of
The Lace Reader

"[A] few pages in . . . and you know you are in the presence of an extraordinary storyteller." --The Daily Beast

"Echoing the immense pleasure of Susanna Clarke's Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, The Night Circus presents a sprightly version of 19th-century English magic. . . . A love story for adults that feels luxuriously romantic." --The Washington Post

"Dark and extravagantly imagined." --
People

"Pure pleasure. . . . Erin Morgenstern is a gifted, classic storyteller, a tale-teller, a spinner of the charmed and mesmerizing--I had many other things I was supposed to be doing, but the book kept drawing me back in and I tore through it. You can be certain this riveting debut will create a group of rêveurs all its own." --Aimee Bender, author of The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake

"[Morgenstern] employs her supple prose to conjure up a series of wonders: A maze made of clouds, a ship of books floating on a sea of ink, a tent that seems to contain a vast desert." --
Salon

"Reading this novel is like having a marvelous dream, in which you are asleep enough to believe everything that is happening, but awake enough to relish the experience and understand that it is magical." --
Newsday

.
🌼Setting :
Q. When and where is your novel set?
A. If there was a main setting that wasn't the circus, it would be London, where the book starts, and where much happens, like Chandresh's Midnight Dinners.

A. Oh. They were mesmerizing. Totally magical. .
🌼Characters :
Q. Pick up the main character in the novel you studied.
A. Celia, Marco, Alexander, Hector Bowen, Bailey, Poppet, Widget.
Q. Did you like them? Why and why not?
A. Celia was my most favorite and Marco was my least favorite after what he did to Isobel. But I wanted to so much of the relationship between each of characters and their development.
.
🌼Theme:
Q. If you had to say what the novel was about in one sentence how would you describe it?
A. A magical story of two people bonded to each other since childhood.
.
🌼Language :
Q. Did you find this book easy to read?
A. Parts of it wasn't easy to comprehend as it's a fantasy.
Q. Pick out your favorite description.
A. Life takes us to unexpected places sometimes. The future is never set in stone, remember that.
.
🌼Conclusion :
Q. Who would you recommend this book to?
A. Recommending this to all Harry Potter fans (not that it's equivalent to it but still) and to those who want to start reading fantasy.
