    DescriptionIn 1886, a mysterious travelling circus becomes an international sensation. Open only at night, constructed entirely in black and white, Le Cirque des Reves delights all who wander its circular paths and warm themselves at its bonfire. Although there are acrobats, fortune-tellers and contortionists, the Circus of Dreams is no conventional spectacle. Some tents contain clouds, some ice. The circus seems almost to cast a spell over its aficionados, who call themselves the reveurs - the dreamers. At the heart of the story is the tangled relationship between two young magicians, Celia, the enchanter's daughter, and Marco, the sorcerer's apprentice. At the behest of their shadowy masters, they find themselves locked in a deadly contest, forced to test the very limits of the imagination, and of their love...A fabulous, fin-de-siecle feast for the senses and a life-affirming love story, "The Night Circus" is a captivating novel that will make the real world seem fantastical and a fantasy world real.

    A circus you dont want to miss5

    Akhmal Aiman Apart from its intriguing, sinister secrets that lie beneath the night circus, the way Morgenstern describes the circus is very graphic.

    Throughout the book, here and there, you would find yourself lost in the circus, desperate to savour the caramel, and see the magical bonfire stands before your eyes.

    Tent filled with ice garden, layers of clouds, bottles filled with scents of beach etc.

    A book you definitely don't want to miss reading.

    Hope they are thinking of making a movie based on it. If there is, I would be the first one to get the ticket. by Akhmal Aiman

  • Have you ever wanted to run away and join the circus?5

    Louise Marsh Have you ever wanted to run away and join the circus?

    You will after reading The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.

    You don't read this book so much as discover it.

    It's like chancing upon an old wooden trunk in the corner of a dusty attic and opening it up to reveal wondrous treasures inside.

    Set in the late 1800s, The Night Circus tells the story of Celia Bowen, daughter of Prospero the Enchanter, and Marcus Alasdair, protégé of sorts to the mysterious man in the grey suit.

    A battle of skills awaits them. But what is the Challenge? When will it take place? And how does the mysterious Le Cirque des Reves - The Circus of Dreams - fit in?

    The Night Circus is an enchanting book. I was captivated and intrigued from its opening pages.

    Morgenstern creates vivid scenes of circus life filled with acts to delight and amaze. I could almost smell the scents of caramel and bonfire wafting from its pages.

    The Night Circus is Water for Elephants meets Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory meets Cirque du Soleil meets Carlos Ruiz Zafon's Shadow of the Wind.

    It's one of the most magical books I've read all year.
