The Night Circus yet, and I have to go ahead and start my review. I love it that much!
This book is the story of Celia and Marco, and of magical happenings and circus tents. It's magic and mystery through and through--and the words themselves are as captivating as the subject matter. I dream of writing like this one day.
On a more practical note, The Night Circus offers an excellent example of pacing and structure for a novel that spans many years. The ease with which Morgenstern moves through time blows me away. Often, I feel like I am stuck accounting for every minute my characters live when I write. This novel does not do that. It is a crisp, captivating example of how to tell your readers only what they need to know.
I'm so glad my book club selected this novel. If you haven't read it yet, I highly recommend it! And if you haven't checked out Erin's blog and website, her Flax-Golden Tales are not to be missed.
