The Night Circus

The Night Circus is a very whimsical and magical book, almost every detail ties together perfectly in the end. The story follows two magicians in a competition Celia and Marco. Then there is another story that begins many years after Celia and Marcos story of boy named Bailey and two years in his life when the circus came to his town. Slowly the two stories going back and forth between the two intersect nicely at the very end.

The Night Circus also pulls at the beginning of each new section describing a part of the circus as if you yourself are actually there enjoy the circus. It brings in the circus smells and atmosphere so nicely that you can easily imagine that you are at this magical circus yourself.

Some characters are more enjoyable to read about than others. Celia seems so distance and static but Marco seems to have more qualities and determinations. Each character has there part in this book and everything has a meaning in the end. I almost feel like I have to reread it at the end to understand things that had happened at the beginning.
