Cannonball Read IV

A bunch of Pajibans reading and reviewing and honoring AlabamaPink.

Janel’s #CBR4 Review #8: The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

February Book Club Selection

 At first I had a hard time following the book as each chapter goes forward or backward in time.  I think the book would have flowed fine if the chapters would have been chronologically ordered.  Also it seems like the magic part of the book was the main focus on the plot, but the more that you kept reading the more the magic was present in little ways.

 I definitely enjoyed the Marco & Celia interactions and how they fought against the preconceived notions by their “puppetmasters” in order to be together in the end.  The story of Bailey & Poppet was very cute as well.  It was interesting to “explore” the circus with Bailey or Herr Thierson or the unknown narrator of the “present-day” circus.

There was a good sense of mystery surrounding all the characters.  I found myself taking my time reading this book and savoring the story as I didn’t want the book to end.
