October 2014 Guest Editor Cecelia Ahern on The Night Circus...

A circus arrives without warning, no announcements preceed it. It opens at nightfall closes at dawn. I felt like I went on an epic and wild adventure when I read this book. It was so full of magic and love, it was unique and thrilling and so incredibly imaginative. It is a wow of a book.

Synopsis

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. The black sign, painted in white letters that hangs upon the gates, reads: Opens at Nightfall Closes at Dawn. As the sun disappears beyond the horizon, all over the tents small lights begin to flicker, as though the entirety of the circus is covered in particularly bright fireflies. When the tents are all aglow, sparkling against the night sky, the sign appears. Le Cirque des Reves The Circus of Dreams. Now the circus is open. Now you may enter.

Reviews

'A book that stops you in your tracks, a book [that]... tears you open and leaves you gasping.... A book that makes the hair on your arms stand on end, and that has you picking up the phone or sending a text to tell everyone you know, 'You have to read this.'... One of those rare, wonderful, transcendent books that, upon finishing, you want to immediately start again.... The Night Circus welcomes all visitors. '
-- The Globe and Mail

'It's a world whose mystique and enigma is hard to shake off, and that invites multiple visits. '
-- National Post

'Magical. Enchanting. Spellbinding. Mesmerizing. Morgenstern - in much the same way as her cast of magicians and performers might - builds a fantastic creation out of words and spells and ink and paper and the power of imagination. And like her colorful characters, she's not dealing in illusions and sleight of hand. This is real magic.'
-- The Seattle Times

'So should you read Erin Morgenstern's debut novel, The Night Circus? The short answer: Yes. The book is engaging and magical, entrancing the reader every step of the way.'
-- The Huffington Post
