Not a circus fan but loved this story..... it was done well and held my attention. Good characters and good story with a nice ending, so many writers struggle with a good ending.
Personally I think this book is getting way too much play time. Being a non-christian I only read this book at the urging of a couple of friends. It changed their lives......not mine. It was shallow, with a dumb ending and simple watered down antidotes on how to live your life. Just ok for me.
Love this book. I got so engaged with a piece of literature that I was sad when it ended. This was truly an exciting book that touched every emotion from sadness, anger to laughing out loud. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys just a good story with great character development and interaction. The author transported me to a place in time.
I hung in with this book purely to see if there was a great ending (there was no ending). Blah blah blah what was the point in all this. What a waste of time. Boring, jumbled, disjointed, poor character interaction. Basically what the hell does this all mean. It left me not wanting anymore from Joe Hill, it will take some time before I try another. Stay away from this book. I have enjoyed his past work but this was horrible......did I mention it was horrible?
Even one star seems to high for this selection. Big fan of the Hannibal series. I believe that it ends here for me. I will choose to fill in the gaps myself. This book was horrible. There was not really a story at all. You still don't understand why he does what he does. It makes sense why he went after the characters in this book but why did he continue. Disappointing does not even cover how I feel about this book. Harris should be ashamed to have this published.
It had a good plot but there were holes and not enough background info to answer "why" or "how did this happen"? That really is all I can say without giving more away. Characters were not really all that believable. This would make a good movie with some Hollywood flair added. It was just ok for me. Although my wife enjoyed it more than I did. It seemed like a long trip to the final conclusion.
