I'm thinking about reading this book sometime. Would you recommend it?

I've been a bit cautious about recommending this book to friends. I would definitely recommend it to someone with a sense of wonder who doesn't need everything to make logical sense in the end. But I would be wary of recommending it to the sorts of friends who need everything explained and resolved by the end of the book -- for example, how the magical elements of the world worked, or exactly what was the purpose of the overall game/competition.

I will also highly recommend you to read it. The Night Circus itself is just pure magic and makes you almost as addicted as the visitors in the novel. Frankly, I wish it were real way to deeply...

I highly recommend! I love the creativity and the descriptive details!

Listened on day listened to 18 chapters and still didn't want to turn it off.

It's romantic, magical and told in a lyrical prose.

I would recommend it to someone who thought they would be interested after reading the cover blurb.

It is a good introduction for someone who thinks they might like to try the fantasy genre.

Absolutely! The entire story is beautifully written and traps you in it. Warning!!! Once you pick it up you will not be able to put it down.

This is always a tough question because who knows what you like to read, but I thought it was a fantastic story with wonderfully imaginative imagery. If that sounds like something you would enjoy, coupled with the fact that everyone else who has commented loves it, I'd say it's a safe bet.
