Because you can't judge a book by its cover

A mysterious circus appears in the middle of the night and as patrons are invited in they notice the entire circus is black and white.  In The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, Celia and Marco are the masterminds behind the circus.  In a battle of wits Celia and Marco are slowly falling in love while unbeknownst to them they are fighting in a deadly game under the instruction of their magician teachers.  Each person in the circus is a pawn as well and slowly Celia and Marco are growing weary of this game.  Will Marco and Celia be able to bear the burden of the circus?

I really enjoyed The Night Circus.  I think I enjoyed it so much due to listening to it as an audio.  I’m not sure I would have liked it as well if I would have read it myself.  The narrator is the same as the Harry Potter novels so he brings you to England, Scotland, and even Germany with his many accents.  The story is a bit descriptive and it does jump around in narration.  The characters are a fun group and with such a unique setting Erin is able to create a fun atmosphere.  There is some language so readers to be aware.  All in all I would recommend listening to this book.

Why Ratings?
It is true you can't judge a book by its cover, you also can't judge a book's graphic content by its cover. NovelReaction's goal is to provide readers with a graphic content so they can make an informed decision regarding the books they want to read. (Also, to have a great place for people to discuss books.) So sit back, pull up a beverage, and read on!
