The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

The previous book I read left me wanting something good, something great. I thought I found it at the Night Circus. I was dazzled and mystified, enchanted and excited. This book started out fantastic. If I could sum up what I felt about it: it was like reading Water for Elephants mixed with Harry Potter.

But it didn’t last. I zoomed through the first hundred pages, I managed through the next hundred and fifty and at 250ish I had to stop… It had lost all it’s magic. The story was slow, too slow and began to amble around in a stupor of boredom. So I, with a bit of disappointment, quit! Baaa… I hate having a run of crappy books. I need something really good. I’ve been thinking of picking up The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer… anyone read it, any good?

Overall rating for The Night Circus 3/10. Flat, but with so much potential.
