Night Circus is magic realism at its best. The fantasy world Morgenstern creates reals in the reader amazingly quickly and takes him on a magic carpet ride through a world where magicians can control matter with their minds. Two characters create the Night Circus as a challenge to see who is the greater magician. The Night Circus opens at midnight and closes at dawn. Audiences might watch a tattooed contortionist fold herself into a tiny glass box, feast on chocolate mice and caramel popcorn, or wander through a sequence of tents that includes an ice garden, a desert and a maze constructed from towering clouds. There seems no end to the exploration of the circus.

Morgenstern’s imagination is magnificent. Circus is a page  turner.
