The Night Circus

The Night Circus Erin Morgenstern


The Night Circus

In 1886 a mysterious travelling circus becomes an international sensation. Open only at night, constructed entirely in black and white, Le Cirque des Reves delights all who wander its circular paths and warm themselves at its bonfire. There are contortionists, performing cats, carousels and illusionists - all the trappings of an ordinary circus. But this is no conventional spectacle. Some tents contain clouds, some ice. The circus seems almost to cast a spell over its aficionados, who call themselves the reveurs - the dreamers. And who is the sinister man in the grey suit who watches over it all? Behind the scenes a dangerous game is being played out by two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who, at the behest of their masters, are forced to test the very limits of the imagination - and of love. A feast for the senses, a fin-de-siecle fantasia of magic and mischief, and the most original love story since "The Time Traveler's Wife", "The Night Circus" is an extraordinary blend of fantasy and reality. It will dazzle readers young and old with its virtuoso performance, and who knows, they might not want to leave the world it creates.

Talvez por se desenrolar em um ambiente tão original: um circo; ou talvez por mexer com magia e imaginação; ou talvez por se tratar de um romance em outra época, uma época de belíssimos vestidos e paixões intensas; ou talvez por tudo isso junto, eu resolvi encomendar o livro e ... leia mais
