    (97)

    In this rollicking tale, best-selling author Dixie Cash - author of My Heart May Be Broken but My Hair Still Looks Great - sets Salt Lick's own sleuthing cosmetologists on a collision course with the Big Apple. On an all-expenses-paid trip to a New York PI convention, the Texas Tornadoes hope to do some serious shopping. But that's before they stumble across a serial killer.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Is is really necessary to use foul language? Not everyone wants to hears those words. I liked the characters, but won't be listening to or reading another in the series.

    The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des RĂªves, and it is only open at night.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I finally gave up and fast forwarded to see how it ended. Maybe I should have found an abridged version. I found all the 'shades of black and white and gray' tedious. And all the character description of how they felt, what they saw, what they were thinking was unnecessary. The premise was interesting, but got lost in all the repetition.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Narration was good.


    What character would you cut from The Night Circus?

    I wouldn't cut a character....I would cut the repetitive descriptions of what things looked like and how people felt. I got the picture the first time round!
