A little teaser


This might be one of the most intriguing beginnings of a book I have ever read:
"The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it, no paper notices on downtown posts and billboards, no mentions or advertisements in local newspapers. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. The towering tents are striped in white and black, no golds or crimsons to be seen. No color at all, save for the neighboring trees and the grass of the surrounding fields. Black-and-white stripes on grey sky; countless tents of varying shapes and sizes, with an elaborate wrought-iron fence encasing them in a colorless world. Even what little ground is visible from outside is black or white, painted or powdered, or treated with some other circus trick. But it is not open for business. Not just yet."
Is it not amazing? I cannot wait to see how this story unfolds! Not to mention the wonderful cover of the book, too. The first word that comes to mind to describe this book is simply "Magical".

"The Night Circus" by Erin Morgenstern

  4. Så langt er jeg superfornøyd med boken! Språket og stemningsbeskrivelsene er utrolig bra - fantasien blir virkelig satt i sving og jeg føler nesten at jeg befinner meg midt i sirkuset :) Jeg har nå kommet halvveis, og gleder meg til å stupe ned i den igjen! Har en følelse av at denne vil bli vemodig å avslutte :) Gled dere!
