Before I can write towards this book's faults, I feel the need to cheerlead it a bit. I thought that The Night Circus was sumptuous and beautiful in nearly every aspect. The writing was dream-like in tone but clear and precise in its execution. The narrative was a pleasure to follow even as it moved back and forth through time, filling in the gaps it created effortlessly before they could distract from the momentum of the plot. The characters were warm and mysterious and wonderful, inviting readers to care about their fantastical situations as though they were everyday tragedies. I truly enjoyed this book.

That being said I felt like something was missing. Normally these sorts of books are automatic fives for me but I couldn't embrace it fully the entire time. I think honestly my biggest problem was the magical contract itself. It was really just a plot device to get the story going and I didn't like how Celia and Marco didn't even really try to find a way to break it. Their ready acceptance of its inevitability took me out of the story at times and I had to fight my way back in. Still I can't wait to read more from Morgenstern. ( )

Beautiful, wonderful, amazing! I don't have enough positive words to describe this book. I once read a blurb on the Twilight books (?) that the author had created a world that readers wanted to climb into and live inside; I don't know about those books, but if I could climb into this book, I absolutely would!

I found this one to be rather boring. It doesn't seem to be character-driven nor plot based either and in some respects it's almost as though the author goes on tangents with characters that you may or may not see again and may or may not play a large role in the book. Also historical inaccuracies tend to bother me in books, especially when there's some things that are fairly accurate such as when characters are being highly sexist but, then it's extremely inaccurate dealing with the fashion of the time such as one of the characters was in a strapless gown and those types of dresses weren't invented until 50 years later. I did not bother to finish this book, I gave it a good shot I read the entire first portion of it which is over a hundred pages long. I'm not going to waste my time reading something that is boring if I don't have to. ( )

Morgenstern’s wonderful novel is made all the more enchanting by top-notch narration from the incomparable Jim Dale.
adicionada por rretzler | editarPublishers Weekly (starred review) (Nov 28, 2011)
 
I am a reader who should have hated this novel; yet I found it enchanting, and affecting, too, in spite of its sentimental ending. Morgenstern's patient, lucid construction of her circus – of its creators and performers and followers – makes for a world of illusion more real than that of many a realist fiction. There is a matter-of-factness about the magicians' magic, a consistency about the parameters of the circus world, that succeeds both in itself and as a comment upon the need for and nature of illusion in general. While the novel's occasional philosophical gestures seem glib ("You are no longer quite certain which side of the fence is the dream"), the book enacts its worldview more satisfyingly than could any summary or statement. Rather than forcing its readers to be prisoners in someone else's imagination, Morgenstern's imaginary circus invites readers to join in an exploration of the possible.

Underneath the icy polish of her prose, Morgenstern well understands what makes The Night Circus tick: that Marco and Celia, whether in competition or in love, are part of a wider world they must engage with but also transcend. It’s a world whose mystique and enigma is hard to shake off, and that invites multiple visits.
adicionada por ncgraham | editarThe National Post, Sarah Weinman (Sep 16, 2011)
 
The Night Circus is one of those books. One of those rare, wonderful, transcendent books that, upon finishing, you want to immediately start again.
 
The book itself looks beautiful but creaky plotting and lifeless characters leave The Night Circus less than enchanting

A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.

Follow your dreams, Bailey, she says. Be they Harvard or something else entirely. No matter what that father of yours says, or how loudly he might say it. He forgets that he was someone's dream once himself.
Children are dragged away with promises that they may return the next evening, though the circus will not be there the next evening and later those children will feel slighted and betrayed.
You are no longer quite certain which side of the fence is the dream.
I do not like being left in the dark. I am not particularly fond of believing in impossible things.
You're not destined or chosen, I wish I could tell you that you were if that would make it easier, but it's not true. You're in the right place at the right time, and you care enough to do what needs to be done. Sometimes that's enough.
