I'm personally confused about why this book is so loved, it's nothing like the summary on the back and I was disappointed. The concept and characters are cool, but I was expecting something more epic.

This book has everything. Lovers! Twins! A contortionist, jerky mentors, a contest of wits will and power! Spooooky ghosts! Late night dinners! World travel! Points of view which while interesting, make no sense until the end when things come together!

I enjoyed this quite a lot, would recommend.

This was such an amazing book. The writing and the characters *dies of joy*
The only thing I didn‘t like was that the romance took a total of 2 chapters and than Kapoof! Never to be seen again.

This was my fourth attempt and I pushed through this time by speeding up the audiobook. It was okay, but for some reason, I just wasn't charmed in the way I think I was supposed to be. I was bored and it never felt like the love story had any tension or build up, it just...was. I flat out hated Water for Elephants, so maybe I have a circus aversion?

This is probably the book I recommend the most when people ask what‘s a really good read. It‘s well written, the story is wonderful, the characters amazing & the setting is lush.

Perhaps a controversial opinion but I didn‘t love this even though by all means I should have.

Lyrical writing - ❤️
Circus - I was in the circus as an aerialist 🎪
Adventure - ❤️
Magic - 🪄 🙌🏻

But still something felt lacking to me. I guessed the twists and turns early on and couldn‘t wait for it to be over. I borrowed it from a friend so I have to give it back soon.

Maybe if I meditate on it I‘ll change my review but for now ⭐️⭐️⭐️.

readingjedi I thought I was going to love this one too as in theory it ticked all my boxes. But I was left feeling like I'd missed something...it was just nowhere near as good as I had thought it was going to be! 5mo
Kitta @readingjedi I know, everyone raves about how good it is! I feel like I‘m missing something. 5mo
sarahbellum This one wasn‘t for me either. Way too much description for way too little plot. And the endless “but we don‘t know what the rules are!” refrain had me losing it 5mo
Kitta @sarahbellum yes! So annoying. 5mo
Ruthiella You are not alone! I really disliked this. Like @sarahbellum said, too much description but no actual story. I wanted more. 5mo

This is one of those rare books that totally captivate & enchant you from page one. It‘s a beautifully crafted, beautifully written magical whimsical love story that has the lot, including a circus of wonders that appears & disappears in the night. With a backstory of a magical wager & a doomed love, it‘s just perfection.

Reading on the train!

I was expecting to love this but it‘s been a bit slow going so far (I‘m 150 pages in). Does it speed up at all?

Soubhiville Her writing style is slow and descriptive. She‘s more about place and characters than plot. 7mo
Kenyazero No, not a book (or author) to read if you want something fast-paced. This book is more about the slow enjoyment of the journey and poetic language. 7mo
Kitta @Soubhiville @Kenyazero ah thanks good to know, I usually enjoy books like that so I guess that‘s why it was recommended to me. I‘m not sure why it‘s not grabbing me, maybe I‘m in the mood for something else and should come back to this! 7mo

Oh goodness, how to say how much I enjoyed this book. Magic, love, whimsy, and excitement wrapped in black, white, and blood red. If you're intrigued, you should just read it. I also highly suggest listening to it narrated by Jim Dale (also who narrated Harry Potter)

MelanieSolane I read it and listened to it and I enjoyed both very much indeed! Would recommend it! 😁 6mo

10/10 for aesthetics, 2/10 for the level of manipulation and delusion suffered by the majority of the characters. How do you truly choose a life plan or partner when powerful people push you in a direction? I'm afraid I spent more time pissed off than enchanted; I didn't get as invested in the star-crossed lovers angle as I think I was supposed to. The ending wrapped up well, but at what cost?

I should have bailed on this book from the get go, but it was read my Jim Dale who also read Harry Potter, and the concept was intriguing. But this book just fell flat for me. The imagery was breath-taking, I'll give it that. But for me the book tried to be too much. It tried to be a fantasy, murder-mystery, comedy but without compelling enough characters for it to work. Also, the ending seemed more self-congratulatory than anything else.

The.Great.Catsby I really struggled listening to that one because I was like huh? No. That is Dumbledore 🤣 8mo

I loved the Starless Sea so much I think almost any other book would pale in comparison. I loved the story of this one I just found the numerous pov (around 15) and the backwards and forwards of multiple time lines (2 timelines I can handle) I found myself having to concentrate on whose pov I was reading and where in the timeline I was so much to the point of it took so me of my enjoyment out of the reading of it. ⭐⭐⭐

After 50%, it got more interesting and easier to read. But, I'm not going to pretend to like the prose. Because in the end, I don't think I understood anything.

jlhammar You are not alone! This book didn't really work for me either. 9mo
lumbricuslibri @jlhammar yeah, the majority seems to like it so I read through the end but was just disappointed. 9mo

sarahbellum I wasn‘t a fan either when I read it a few months ago. Too much flash and not enough substance. And waaaay too much whining about not knowing the mechanics of the competition 😩 9mo
lumbricuslibri @sarahbellum yes! Exactly! 😞 9mo
Linear I audio listened to this at night laying in bed. It was one of those books that makes me think of a story teller speaking. If that makes sense. When I was little my mom would read Hans Christian Anderson fairytales at night like this. And it reminded me of that. So it was soothing and I figured it out as its read like an old fairy tale. 9mo
Linear The story is also circular. It ends at the beginning... it ends at the start of the story being told. I happened to also love this tagged book for how it's written like an old fairy tale. And a lot of people couldn't get into that one either lol. 9mo
lumbricuslibri @Linear thanks for sharing! I did get that and it makes sense to me that there's a storyteller. I guess, ultimately, I just didn't like the story being told—not for me. Still interested in checking out Vassa in the Night, though. Thanks again! 😄 9mo
