Disappointing, 10 Oct. 2013
I was recommended this book and on reading the description thought it sounded very promising. I agree with other reviews that the descriptions of the circus were magical however they got rather repetitive after a while. There was little story and most of the characters were uninspiring. The story jumped around so much it was confusing and didn't really flow. Towards the end of the book I was just bored and skipping paragraphs to get to the end.
