The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
In anticipation of Erin Morgenstern's newest and sophomore novel, the Starless Sea; I decided to take up the Night Circus again.
This time I went with the audiobook and I'm so glad that I did. Typically I don't go back through books a second time because I read so much. I want as many new stories as I possible can get. But going back to the Night Circus was like visiting an old friend.
Back was my love of the circus that Celia and Marco created for each other to play in. Back was the epic scope of a magical travelling circus. Back were all my favorite characters who supported Celia and Marco.
To me, this novel encompasses what all novels should have. An air of mystery. A big dose of unconditional love for the characters, the readers, the written word itself. Despite the circus itself being monochrome in color, this book provides one of the most vibrant worlds I've ever had the pleasure of hanging out in for a time.
I could listen to this book again and again and still hear new things. Which, if you've read the book…is precisely the point.
