I love stories involving circuses, so this was right up my alley. The writing is solid, the characters are sympathetic, overall it is a fun and fast read. I'm not usually fond of the "frame" narrative technique, but I didn't feel it distracted too much from this novel. The book left me smiling and entertained, but beyond that, I didn't feel it broke any ground or gave me something that will last in my memory for years to come. Still, it was an enjoyable read and I'd recommend it.
