Picked this one up at the airport. I was on my way to a conference and left the book I was planning to read in my checked luggage. Thought the premise was quite original. Really liked the juxtaposition of the "real" world and the circus.
The Night Circus - I've been looking forward to this one for so long. The story itself is great. The writing is beautiful and descriptive, the problem.....there is this very slow build up and then a very anticlimactic ending. It was still worth reading. I felt that the author was so into keeping everything a mystery and building up this expectation. ... just to gloss over the crucial points that we were waiting for at the end.
