3.5 stars

Told in story-like chapters, Richard Schmitt gives readers an inside look into the lives of circus people.

Everyone from the wirewalkers, trapeze artists, clowns to the twenty-four-hour man, bullhands, butchers, pie car servers, and animal people all get a chance to tell their story first hand.

At first this book was hard for me to get into because of the layout of the chapters. However, once I got into the flow of the story, it was hard to put down, as each story was better than the one before it.

I am looking forward to reading other circus/carnival stories since it's an interesting topic worth exploring.
