Couldn't get into it and it had to go back to the library. I have a hard time with books written in present tense.

It was a slow start. I did not care for the actual main characters and was more interested in side characters. ( )
  Hollee.Archibald | Nov 25, 2021 |
This could have been a really good book but it wasn't. The premise was wonderful and then the author ruined it with endless unnecessary descriptive passages (apparently readers cannot be trusted to have any imagination whatsoever) and flat characters with no sense of personal identity (like characters in a fairy tale, they are stock figures and difficult to keep straight). Ms. Morgenstern uses language beautifully; sadly, she can't tell a story effectively.

Right near the end of the book, one of the characters is asked to tell a story from the heart, not the head Perhaps this is something the author could try. ( )

Gol dang, this whole review just disappeared on me! And apparently GoodReads doesn't automatically save drafts! Rargh!

Okay, I don't have air conditioning and I'm not in the mood to do the whole thing all over again, which is sad since I really enjoyed this book. I'll do a quick recap of the highlights.

The Good:
>> Gorgeous world building
>> Actually does feel dream-like
>> Loved the second-person descriptions of different tents scattered throughout the book
>> Great engaging characters
>> Most of "the bad" only appeared in last 50 pages
>> Romance not central to plot
>> Favorite (book) things in this book: Multiple main characters; Playing with the timeline; World workings not explained to death

The Bad:
>> Saw the "fix-it" coming as soon as it was introduced in the plot
>> Self-congratulatory penultimate chapter took away dreaminess
>> Not completely satisfying ending (IMO)

The Neutral/Cancel Outs:
>> Descriptions beautiful but words mostly, well, not
>> Some diversity (good), but could easily have had more

Quote Roundup

57 - A show without an audience is nothing, after all. In the response of the audience, that is where the power of the performance lives.

113 - He reads histories and mythologies and fairy tales, wondering why it seems that only girls are ever swept away from their mundane lives on farms by knights or princes or wolves. It strikes him as unfair to not have the same fanciful opportunity himself.
Feminist and fairy tale aficionado rage.

184 - It is these aficionados, these reveurs, who see the details in the bigger picture of the circus. They see the nuance of the costumes, the intricacy of the signs. They buy sugar flowers and do not eat them, wrapping them in paper instead and carefully bringing them home. They are enthusiasts, devotees. Addicts. Something about the circus stirs their souls, and they ache for it when it is absent.
--They seek each other out, these people of such specific like mind. They tell of how they found the circus, how those first few steps were like magic. Like stepping into a fairy tale under a curtain of stars. They pontificate upon the fluffiness of the popcorn, the sweetness of the chocolate. They spend hours discussing the quality of the light, the heat of the bonfire. They sit over drinks smiling like children and they relish being surrounded by kindred spirits, if only for an evening. When they depart, they shake hands and embrace like old friends, even if they have only just met, and as they go their separate ways they feel less alone than they had before.

243 - "I do not mourn the loss of my sister because she will always be with me, in my heart. I am, however, rather annoyed that my Tara has left me to suffer you lot alone. I do not see as well without her. I do not hear as well without her. I do not feel as well without her. I would be better off without a hand or a leg than without my sister. Then at least she would be here to mock my appearance and claim to be the pretty one for a change. We have all lost our Tara, but I have lost a part of myself as well."
I was furious when Tara Burgess's name was not included on the memorial plaque at the end of the book.

244 - The rain increases and umbrellas sprout like mushrooms amongst the graves.
I really like this image

263 - "The past stays on you the way powdered sugar stays on your fingers. Some people can get rid of it but it's still there, the events and things that pushed you to where you are now."

335 - "We are two different people. Just because you could never decide which one of us you were in love with does not make us interchangeable."
An awesome woman laying down the law.

367 - "Wufju fay foo im?" he asks, with his mouth mostly full.
--"I tried to explain as much as I could. I think I made an analogy about cake."
--"Well, that must have worked. Who doesn't like a good cake analogy?"

416 - A scene set in Boston
The stories of Herr Thiessen continue through dessert, interrupted only by a discussion about why the cake is called a pie when it is clearly a cake.
Shout out to Boston creme pie!

458 - "They think it simple to pit two people against each other. It is never simple. The other person becomes how you define your life, how you define yourself. They become as necessary as breathing. They expect the victor to continue on without that. It would be like pulling the Murray twins apart and expecting them to be the same. They would be whole but not complete."
I just liked the paragraph, but now I notice that the Burgess sisters have yet again been dropped for some inexplicable reason.

489 - I find I think of myself not as a writer so much as someone who provides a gateway, a tangential route for readers to reach the circus. To visit the circus again, if only in their minds, when they are unable to attend it physically. I relay it through printed words on crumpled newsprint, words that they can read again and again, returning to the circus whenever they wish, regardless of time of day or physical location. Transporting them at will.
--When put that way, it sounds rather like magic, doesn't it?
I flagged this to myself before I realized the whole section was going to be like this, which ruined the effect. ( )

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. ( )

Morgenstern’s wonderful novel is made all the more enchanting by top-notch narration from the incomparable Jim Dale.
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.
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.

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.
