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 Rêves, and it is only open at night.

What made the experience of listening to The Night Circus the most enjoyable?

The story was an excellent. I felt like I really got to know the characters. It felt like a very classic story. I think the excellent narration by Jim Dale contributed heavily to the classic feel.

Any additional comments?

If you love the circus or magic or both you will enjoy this tale.

They called it the Thorn Hill Massacre - the brutal attack on a once-thriving Weir community. Though Jonah Kinlock lived through it, he did not emerge unscathed: like the other survivors Jonah possesses unique magical gifts that set him apart from members of the mainline guilds.

What did you love best about The Enchanter Heir?

I thought Chima continued the Heir world well. The introduction of "new" magical guilds brought some freshness to that world. I enjoyed the book and thought it was on par with her other books in the series. The first book in this 2 part continuation created many more questions than answers and seemed to mostly set up the final book. Be prepared for many cliffhangers.

Any additional comments?

In my opinion, the narration was really slow. There were a lot of unnecessary pauses. If the narrator had a little bit quicker pace, I would have enjoyed the narration. The voice fit the male character well.
