Richly detailed, serious-minded fantasy. Well-developed, endearing characters. Captivating romantic storyline. True to historical setting.
I haven't read it, just listened. It was so well narrated! I am considering purchasing the print version and reading it because I loved it so much!
There were too many!
No, but this performance was AMAZING!
I think the Night Circus is the perfect name!
LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!
The narrator was PHENOMENAL! He really kept my interest. However, the story was lackluster at best and wasn't as much of a romance as I expected. Would probably enjoy the book more as a physical book because it was hard to keep track of the different characters and changes in time.
The story didn't have a sense of urgency or conflict. There was no real climax; it was just a slow crawl up a very slight incline. I enjoyed it but it was just average. Sad, because I think it had the potential to be so much more. Jim Dale, as always, was great.
The multitude of characters and the care with which Morgenstern developed them;
His apparent enthusiasm for the work; the narration was masterful.
Just read/listen to the first chapter if THAT doesn't capture you, then I don't know what will. Great story telling. I love different perspectives. A lot of times I get lost with multiple point of views, but, I could follow this one easy. Interesting book. Looking forward to more books from this author.
Jim Dale's narration of this story was SPECTACULAR. If you are a fan of the Harry Potter audiobooks, then you will love his performance of this audiobook as well. However, I was expecting more magic from this tale. The writing is very poetic and beautiful but the storyline left excitement to be desired from me.
I would recommend this audiobook to someone who is looking for an imaginative tale but does not particularly care for action. There IS some drama, but no battle scenes or crazy displays of magic. The magic is more subtle in this book, or as it is referred to in this story: illusions.
Overall, I enjoyed the listen and may listen to it again in the future.
