THE NIGHT CIRCUS

Editorial Review - Kirkus - Jane Doe

Self-assured, entertaining debut novel that blends genres and crosses continents in quest of magic.The world's not big enough for two wizards, as Tolkien taught us—even if that world is the shiny, modern one of the late 19th century, with its streetcars and electric lights and newfangled horseless carriages. Yet, as first-time novelist Morgenstern imagines it, two wizards there are, if likely ... Read full review

Review: The Night Circus

Editorial Review - Bookreporter.com - Norah Piehl

When I was at the BookExpo America publishing convention earlier this year, I kept bumping into the same fancifully attired young people.

A magical dark romantic journey

User Review  - Eliza57 - Target

This incredible book is one that should be turned into a movie so everyone will run out and buy it! We are on our second copy because the first one fell apart from so many re-readings.

LibraryThing Review

User Review  - whimsicalwattle - LibraryThing

I enjoyed this book, it felt really special. But I think the end let it down a bit, I would have liked to find out more about how things went on. Also the use of second person every few chapters drove me insane. Second person is my least favourite point of view, I simply cannot stand it. Read full review
