An overly long story in which nothing much happens. Confusing as an audiobook, as the story goes back and forth in time. Well-known narrator just about put me to sleep on the highway. His voicing of female characters was not pleasant. Read full review

I thought I was going to like this one much more than I did. I was so sure I was going to love this book that I even splurged and bought the hardcover. It's about a circus that is only open to the ... Read full review
