I won the ARC of this book a few days before it comes out. :) Excited to get into it.

I completely agree. So much potential but in the end I didn't really understand the story........at all.

It could have been so much better in the romance department. Maybe that's why am so disappointed in it. I was reading it for that.

Maybe a movie is a good idea... cure for insomnia. I know the book put me to sleep within minutes

@Ashley GOOD ONE. I cannot see how this book would make an entertaining movie! The "main" characters are separated for basically the entire book and the competition is so DULL.

It was a disappointment for me too. Who actually enjoyed it from the beginning till the end?

Good review. I like your honesty.
I agree. I don't think it's as good as Jonathan Strange, for example -- from which she borrowed a few things.
I'm actually hoping the movie will make it better, which is possible.

Yes. I didn't quite understand the story at all either.

Joe - Jonathan Strange was way better for me despite its lengthiness.

For me, this book had potential, but the death and I'll never forgive Prospero on his cruelty to his daughter, evil twat!! I got it was about a gothic circus in the victorian era, didn't like the violence!!
