Book Review, The Night Circus, by Erin Morgenstern

Watch this...
 
If the video doesn't make you want to read this book then I hope my glowing recommendation does. This has to be hands down one of my favorite books. The author does an amazing job of dragging all your senses into the reading experience, she paints such unique pictures that stay with you long after you close the book AND, that's right there's even an and, and there are clocks, loads and loads of clocks! I give this book a...
The only reason this doesn't get a 12:00 is because I felt the relationship between the two lovers was  at times slow, then suddenly jumped into full gear. I think the author spent more time developing her world, which is so amazingly done. But could have spent more time on the romance. But that's just me, I'm a hopeless romantic.

Clockpunk highlights; For starters there is a lot of black and white! So I would be amiss to not give her praises there. If you don't know what I'm talking about, read this post. And the clockwork, is so stunning and creative, if you love clocks like me, you won't want it to end. I would even venture to say, that those who don't love clocks will find a new appreciation for them after this book! To date The Night Circus is the closest to Clockpunk values and imagination I have read. I strongly suggest you read The Night Circus...

...In fact, I want to help one lucky reader do just that. If you are interested in reading the book leave me a message on the bottom of this post. At the end of the month I will give one of you a copy of this book! That's how much I love it!

  4. Despite most of the flaws, this does have a light charm. Mainly in the aforementioned descriptive passages. But it feels like a decorative story at best. I can see how a movie could create some stunning visuals with this, but good luck with the characters.

    1. It is decorative, but as a writer I admire other writer's who can paint words like that. She has a gift for sure.

  5. Recommended for a more mature teen readership, but there is nothing explicit for parents to be wary of. While there are paranormal themes, this book would cross over into general fiction very easily. Think JK Rowling teaming up with Tim Burton to devise a more adult themed Harry Potter... I can not wait for this movie.

    1. Jk and Burton comparison is pretty much my dream team. Could you imagine the amount of awesomeness that would come out of that? Oh man.

  6. It's the one I always recommend when asked what good books I've read lately. It's full of magic, wonder and romance. Beautiful and well written.

  7. I wish I could emphatically state that this book is for everybody, but it isn't. I think of readers I know well ... My step-father will love it, my mother might, my father won't. Then again, this book is so surprising, I could be completely wrong.

    For me, it was flawless.
