13/20, 阅读计划 2014 - The Night Circus ~ Erin Morgenstern
It's a book about magic, wizards pitting their apprentice against each other in the most unique way. No fireballs or turning each other into toads and such. The competition is set in the Circus, circus where time stood still, with attractions so vividly described you wish you can be there. yes there is the love story and yes you guessed it, between the apprentices.
I like the ethereal feel of the story with the distinct cast of characters.
oh and the clocks! the amazing clocks, i can't imagine what it is like.
"The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called 'Le Cirque des Reves' and it is only open at night."
