Really good read that pulls you straight in to the lives of those living and experiencing the Night Circus. The shadow of a dark side to the Circus is there throughout the book and it is not surprise when it emerges to change everything.

Simsion has created a great character who fascinates and intrigues the reader, evokes sympathy and makes us laugh. Really good way to get to grips with the way of thinking of a person with Aspergers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life changing insights into the human condition, 4 Jan 2013
Emmy is rightfully known as the foremost teacher, writer and speaker on existential philosophy and psychotherapy in the world today. Her books have been translated into many languages, bringing the messages of Heidegger, Jaspers and Sartre, together with her own unique philosophical stance on life, to a worldwide audience. This book is an essential read for any trainee or practising mental health professional who wants to find out more about existential ideas and how to apply them in their work with clients. Full of practical illustrations, this book allows professional or lay person alike to familiarise themselves with powerful reflections on human existence, from Aristotle and the ancient Greeks to the British, Continental and American existentialism of the present day. It also contains invaluable pointers as to how these reflections can revitalise our own experience of being human. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to make the most of being alive or to help others deal with life's challenges and absurdity.

This review is from: The Racketeer (Kindle Edition)
One of Grisham's page turners. An easy read but with enough and turns twists in the plot to keep you guessing.
