A mind-blowing first novel that will be the most exciting bestseller of 2011. A magical love story and a story about the love of magic, set in a fantastical circus in the late nineteenth century where two magicians battle for supremacy.

In 1886 a mysterious travelling circus becomes an international sensation. Open only at night, constructed entirely in black and white, the Cirque des Rêves delights all who wander its circular paths and warm themselves at its bonfire. There are contortionists, performing cats, carousels and illusionists - all the trappings of an ordinary circus. But this is no conventional spectacle. Some tents contain clouds, some ice. The circus seems almost to cast a spell over its aficionados, who call themselves the rêveurs - the dreamers. And who is the sinister man in the grey suit who watches over it all? Behind the scenes a dangerous game is being played out by two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who, at the behest of their masters, are forced to test the very limits of the imagination - and of love. A feast for the senses, a fin-de-siècle fantasia of magic and mischief, and the most original love story since The Time Traveler's Wife, The Night Circus is an extraordinary blend of fantasy and reality. It will dazzle readers young and old with its virtuoso performance, and who knows, they might not want to leave the world it creates.

i finally read this book after seeing it many times on lists and in bookstores. It truly is a wonderful read. I can understand why people adore this book. It is at heart a love story but has so much magic and wonder in it with a dark undercurrent through it. The couple at the centre of the story are pitted against each other in a contest they know little about, with the rules unclear and the consequences far reaching. Beautifully written and organised. And a perfect Shakespeare quote near the end! Highly recommended.

LITERALLY THE BEST BOOK I'VE READ !!!!

5

To be completely honest when I first purchased the book, I wasn't sure whether I was going to enjoy it or not, and oh how wrong was I. This has literally become one of my favourite books of all time. The writing was phenomenal! The Characters were extremely engaging and so well developed and written beautifully. The fact that they were flawed is what makes readers drawn to them as well as each character has a significant role in the novel is genius. The plot​ was amazing. EVERYTHING WAS SO MAGICAL AND WELL WRITTEN, the author did an outstanding job.
