The Night Circus - Erin Morgenstern The word that describes this story for me is: surreal!I didn't really know what to expect from this novel, it was after all "just" about a circus. But the description of the circus and the different tents made me long to go to the circus as well. I thought that the prose was beautiful and I had to get used to the writing style at first, but as soon as I did, I felt like I was right in the middle of the story.Although the novel was set at the late 19th century, it was as if the story just happened yesterday. The writing style was in the present tense, that's possibly the reason why.I wasn't very fond of the main characters, they seemed to be bland and their story was predictable.The stories of the other characters was more interesting, though the characters didn't grow on me as much as I would have liked. Also, the challenge. I wasn't even sure what it was all about. It would have explained the whole situation a bit better, if it was explained somewhat sooner in the story.All in all, it was a magical read and I really enjoyed the ride on the carousel ;)
