The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern REVIEW

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

library copy

Synopsis from Goodreads
The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.
But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway—a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them, this is a game in which only one can be left standing, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will. Despite themselves, however, Celia and Marco tumble headfirst into love—a deep, magical love that makes the lights flicker and the room grow warm whenever they so much as brush hands.
True love or not, the game must play out, and the fates of everyone involved, from the cast of extraordinary circus per­formers to the patrons, hang in the balance, suspended as precariously as the daring acrobats overhead.
Written in rich, seductive prose, this spell-casting novel is a feast for the senses and the heart.

I'm not going to go into all the details, because there are gazillions of fantastic reviews out there for this book. All I say is READ IT. This is an absolute feast for your imagination.

The Night Circus is carefully crafted in such a way that every little detail enhances the experience - the colours, the smells and the taste of all the treats you buy as a visitor of the circus...

I have never read anything like that. This book can not be rushed, it needs to be savoured bit by bit. All of the multiple characters are rich and vivid, - Celia and Marco, the sisters, Tsukiko, Bailey, The Reveurs, Widget and Poppet, Chandresh... They all come together like pieces of a puzzle, and it's breathtakingly beautiful.

This book is much more than the story of love. The love is a consequence of creating The Night Circus, which is absolutely magical.

I can't recommend it high enough.

Самая настоящая хрупкая и красивейшая сказка.

Её нужно читать медленно, маленькими кусочками, потому что каждая деталь настолько хороша и вычурна,происходит перенасыщение, если прочитать больше, чем несколько страниц за раз.

Цирк Ночи создан для бесконечного соперничества между учениками двух волшебников, он не стоит на месте, а постоянно обрастает новой магией, внутри которой пойманы его участники: Силия и Марко, Виджет и Поппет, Бэйли, Чандреш, Тсукико и многие другие...

Любовь и дружба между Силией и Марко возникает помимо их желания, так как оба пойманы в ловушку правил игры и ни один из них не сможет её закончить пока не умрёт соперник.

Ночной Цирк - это большая и сложная головоломка, в которой каждый вкус и запах, каждый мазок кисти привносит свою картинку, и все они постепенно собираются в одну грандиозную историю.

Эту книгу надо читать, она невероятна.

The Night Circus
Gabriel's Inferno


In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
