it was ok
Read from January 09 to February 04, 2012

I had very high expectations for this book, and boy was I dissapointed! I loved the magical feeling and descriptions at the beginning. I loved the descriptions of the circus throughout, BUT I kept waiting to get to the "story." The love affair in the book is flat and not brought to life. I wanted to fall in love with the characters but it was very difficult to feel connected to them. Their sayings/speech within the narrative are boring.

I read through the book sometimes quickly because I wanted to get to the suspense, but I was left waiting. I can't say I hated it, but it definitely fell short. Now that I think back I feel like this is a draft of the novel it could be.

I was left wondering what the heck it was all really about? I am sad. Wish I could have written a good review.
