The author might have more facility as a poet. The words are strung together beautifully. Unfortunately, the words don't develop characters that I actually care about.
I hated to do it but I gave up on it.
I enjoyed the story and performance-'full of imagery and interesting characters. The story and Jim Dale's narration pulls the listener into the world of the night circus.
This book is written beautifully and the narration by Jim Dale is splendid. Do yourself a favor and listen to this book. It is now one of my favorite books of all time.
I don't usually write reviews, but the imagery in this story were so magical I had to. if you have an imagination and like opportunities to soar outside your own reality, you will love this book.
add a captivating plot with interwoven characters and this book is a gem!

Jim Dale's excellent narration and story are such a perfect match. Completely engaging and wonderful to hear. Definitely worth buying.
The descriptions of the Circus and the people who populate it; in fact, all of the descriptions are gorgeous without being laborious and truly were a feast for the ears. I SAW the Circus and its many unusual tents.
This is a great, sweeping story that stays manageable by focusing on the experiences of a good handful of excellently rendered characters.
