it was amazing
bookshelves: book-club, favorites

I haven't read an adult fiction book that has moved me and lulled me into sweet submission the way this book has in many, many months. Its dream-like quality is perfect for stretching the boundaries of your own imagination. I mean, really--an ever-changing, ever-expanding circus is the perfect construct for doing so, am I right?

I am also not usually an audiobook listener, but my goodness--Jim Dale is amazing! The way he imbues each of the myriad of colorful characters with their own vocal tics and accents is astounding. Even if you've already read the book, I recommend picking up the audio. You'll be enthralled all over again.

Maggie Yay! I'm glad you liked it Evan!

I would highly recommend reading the book and then listening to Jim Dale on audio. This is the first audio book I've ever listened to and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was sad when it was over.

I believe they are going to make this into a movie too.

Nicole Naylor I love Jim Dale...stealing a quote from a friend "I could listen to Jim Dale read the phone book!"
