The Night Circus

The Night Circus - Erin Morgenstern A truly enchanting book. The descriptions in it were absolutely beautiful. There were many moments I had to stop to admire the use of wording. During the times spent at the circus, I could almost feel the magical atmosphere, those parts were my favourite. (Especially the chapters Bailey spends at the circus.)

It took me a longer time than usual to read the book and at the beginning I just couldn't get into it. For this reason I was going to give it four stars. The ending is much better than the start. One of the closing chapters between Widget and Alexander, reclaimed the remaining star.

It really was a beautiful book. I really enjoyed it even though I usually go for philosophy over description.
