The Night Circus
Book: The Night Circus
Author: Erin Morgenstern
This book was AMAZING. It has so many details that you feel that you are actually there while reading. It was so in depth that you can see and feel all of the characters. I have never read a book that I was in love with this much, and I can only hope that the author continues to write such great work. The book is set in the 1800's - 1900's, though I can almost guarantee that you will not be able to tell. It just seems as if she gives enough detail that it feels like home, something you fully understand and are surrounded by in day-to-day life.
Celia is the female lead, you will first meet her as a child and watch how she grows into adulthood. Her father places Celia in a long lasting duel with a rival magician's person of choice. Marco, the boy that the rival magician chooses is just as interesting as Celia. You find yourself wanting to know more and more about the rules of the duel, but at the same time you are so enthralled by the masterpieces that the two are creating in the circus. There are way too many characters to name, but you will learn about each of them in the book and each one has their own part in the story.
Just do yourself a favor and go purchase this book right now!
