Provocative and interesting. Highly imaginative but at times too much, like eating too many chocolates. A bit more exposition and a dose of reality would have been Helpful. Still, quite imaginative and quite a ride.
Loved the story, well read.
I'd like to dine with all of them.
I liked everything about the story.
Wish I could hear more.
I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this book!! Fantastic story, excellently narrated. I wish there was a sequel - I'd buy it in a heartbeat! :)
The ONE thing that I think would make it better to have this in printed format was the dates... Because the story goes back and forth between different dates/ years, it was a bit hard to figure out what order things happened, because I had difficulty remember what happened in which year... but this is probably just because I'm forgetful... LOL! Others may not have this problem. :)
I'd like to be able to flip back and forth between chapters and look at the dates before each one. (It might help if the chapters were titled with the date, rather than "Chapter 1... Ch. 2..., etc.)
But GREAT audio despite this one tiny drawback. One of my new Audible favorites, for sure!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I am amazed at the imagination of the author, I loved it and of course who doesn't love Jim Dale as the reader. My only issue is I am so use to Jim Dale reading the Harry Potter books that it took my brain a bit to realize this was NOT Harry Potter. The story is wonderful I was totally lost in the story.
Contemporary enchanting mystery
Neverwhere, in that it is set in a world close to ours, yet still separate from it.
His voice is amazing, his performance reminds me of a grandfather reading a story, while at the same time somehow sounding like he is recounting history. Amazing.
A circus in black and white
The story is not entirely chronological, which you might not notice right away when it is narrated. This is not a problem though, as the sections set
I have not listened to such a fascinating book in a long time. The language is rich and vibrant; the narrator, perfect. The Night Circus (Cirque du Reve) is indeed a dream, with illusion and fact intertwined. Certainly not a book for those who live only in the real world.
Love it, love it, love it, I listen at work could not wait to get to work and get back to the circus made the day go by while I was transported to another world....Thank you
When I started listening to Night Circus, I was pleasantly surprised to hear Jim Dale's voice, the narrator who did the Harry Potter Series (magnificently). That made this story that much better. I loved the story, my only complaint is that I wish the author spent a little more time describing all the countries the circus visits (though I know the focus is within the circus's fence, mainly). It spans many genres, so if you like mystery, fantasy, fiction, etc. it is worth the money.
