Jess Penhallow | 35 comments I'm giving this book a second chance. It sounds like it is just my kind of thing and I tried to read it years ago but I didn't like that it was in second person. That tense really annoys me because I like to view a book as an outsider rather than get immersed. I'm trying it on audiobook to see if that makes it better.

Can anyone tell me how much of the book is in second person? (e.g. you, your rather than I or they)

I guess I'm in the minority that didn't enjoy the book that much.


Jess Penhallow | 35 comments Okay, I finished it. I was glad that the second person narrative was used sparsely and did enjoy the rich descriptions but I found the plot to be confusing and the characters to be flat. Also, insta-love - eurrgh!

D20 | 162 comments This has been on my tbr forever but I just didn't have time to read it this month. Some of the comments suggest I might not enjoy it all that much so I wonder if I should bother.


Dawn Loved this book! Vivid descriptions that sweep you away and make you want to join the circus as well!

WOW!

It's been a hell of a journey. I loved it all the way. It pulled me in from the very beginning. And I didn't wanna put it down and I didn't want to end it either.

It was magical, dream-like, beautiful really. I wanted to find that circus and get lost in it. The writing was beautiful, and picturesque.

Ofcourse the biggest challenge was to figure out about the challenge and how could it possibly end without breaking our hearts. And the solution was the best there could've been.
I'm so glad to have finally read it :)
