A simply magical book that was enchanting from beginning to end. I liked how the 2 story lines, while initially separated by years wound around each other until finally melding together at the end. The only part I didn't like we're the bits of 2nd-person perspective. I've always found it too disconcerting to read "You do this, and then you do that." I want to read about other people, not myself - but thankfully those were relatively few in number and short in duration. I can see Hollywood trying to make a movie out of his and hope they don't even bother. ( )

An enchanting beginning got me about a quarter of the way through The night Circus, but I soon found myself avoiding it, never a good sign, so abandoned it. Had a lot of promise. The author has a good prose style, and I am a sucker for books that contain things like magical contests, orphans, and 19th century England. But my interest soon waned as it became apparent that those initial charms were strictly superficial. There is little plot to the book and the characters are flat, cardboard cutouts. Also, another reviewer over at Amazon summed it up perfectly when they said: "The pace of the entire book flows sedately, never altering its rhythm. There's no climax or compulsive page-turning appeal." Yes, this exactly. So anyway, this is a misfire. ( )

This is a polarizing book, in case a glance at the reviews doesn't clue you in. Overall: magical realism without the realism; mostly - like a circus - charm, atmosphere, & novelty. Details:

Things I Enjoyed
* well-formed & gorgeous atmosphere coherent throughout the book
* charming characters
* engaging concept
* entertaining language
* it has a very good first sentence
* I read most of this book in 1 day because it was that engaging

Things I Did Not Enjoy
* what kept me reading was mainly atmosphere
* characters were little but charming
* there were a lot of descriptions of food and I kept getting hungry and ate an amount of cheeze-its I regretted immediately
* not many things happen; mainly descriptions of things
* some unclear jumping through time and shifting perspectives
* very little intrigue or suspense despite the lack of clarity (might be because of the author's fairy-tale tone; that sense of utter conviction that all things make sense that you get when you read Little Red Riding Hood is the same here, no worry that the wolf will win, no worry that things will not fall into place, no worry whatsoever) ( )

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.

Informação do Conhecimento Comum em inglês. Edite para a localizar na sua língua.
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.
