The Night Circus | Erin Morgenstern
Mehso-so

While there were several elements I liked in the middle of the novel, the imagery & detailed descriptions were the novel‘s strengths. The novel began & ended slowly, dragging more than it should have. The constant shifts in time, place, & narrative POV (the second person was entirely unnecessary) made it difficult to connect some pieces & to create a cohesive timeline, especially before characters were established.

Mehso-so

Frequent narrator changes are annoying and I must have reread the first 50 pages 3 times just to figure out the main characters and why I should care. It was maddening how long it took interesting threads to pay out on clues.
The troubled youth reveal and why some make deadly decisions was timely, though this story doesn't shed any additional light on the problem and makes the motives sound even more selfish and sinister. #RebelliousReaders

Karizma The character arcs were mostly rewarding and the overall message of kindness was another plus. Very difficult to rate on a 3 point scale. Not a love or hate, decidedly a middle of the road experience. 4mo
