JAH­NAVI BARUA on BOOKS

Tehelka - - MASTER TAKES -

Erin Mor­gen­stern’s The Night Cir­cus has all the el­e­ments I usu­ally do not care for — fan­tasy, magic, whimsy, it is set back in time and is rather long. Yet I warmed up to it. The plot spills all over the place at times but the story is en­chant­ing. A cir­cus that ap­pears with­out warn­ing and sets it­self up in the dark of the night. At the core is a heart-warm­ing ro­mance that makes it worth a read.

‘A heart-warm­ing ro­mance at the core of a story about a cir­cus’
