The Night Circus, by Erin Morgenstern: a Review

The Night CircusThe Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A bedtime story of the best kind, The Night Circus transport the reader into myriad points in time and space connected by the thread of a dream made real through the efforts of the characters.

I wondered, in the beginning, if I could grow to love a story written in the present tense, but I did. The Night Circus was beautiful, detailed, and filled with not only sights and sounds, but weight, density, and scents.

A highly enjoyable and mesmerizing tapestry of lives, read this if you need a good dose of the transcendent injected into the mundane motions of your daily life.
