In 1886, a mysterious travelling circus becomes an international sensation. Open only at night, constructed entirely in black and white, Le Cirque des Rêves delights all who wander its circular paths and warm themselves at its bonfire.

Although there are acrobats, fortune-tellers and contortionists, the Circus of Dreams is no conventional spectacle. Some tents contain clouds, some ice. The circus seems almost to cast a spell over its aficionados, who call themselves the rêveurs - the dreamers. At the heart of the story is the tangled relationship between two young magicians, Celia, the enchanter's daughter, and Marco, the sorcerer's apprentice.

A fabulous, fin-de-siècle feast for the senses and a life-affirming love story, The Night Circus is a captivating novel that will make the real world seem fantastical and a fantasy world real.

Erin Morgenstern, die Autorin des Erfolgsromans „Der Nachtzirkus“, ist mir unheimlich sympathisch. Nicht, weil ihr Buch zauberhaft ist (obwohl es das ist), sondern weil sie ehrlich ist. Seit 2011 hat Morgenstern nichts mehr veröffentlicht. Sie arbeitet an einem neuen Projekt, ohne dass ein Ende abse...

3.0 The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Wow it took me nearly two years to finish this book and I'm actually not entirely sure why. It probably had a lot to do with the pace of the plot, but the rest of the book was very well crafted.The plot for this could not have been slower. From the beginning to about the middle of the book every tim...
