vivid setting, stagnant plot, 26 Feb 2012
I found it memorable and full of imagery that prints a lasting impression, so much so that you wish you could experience these descriptions in flesh life. However, the plot seems to amount to nothing exciting and the ending I found disappointing- rather a half effort. I felt well immersed through the vividness of the characters and setting but with the plot so stark I was hoping for more. That said, I was quite sad when the enchantment of the circus ended.I would recommend it just for the enjoyment of the circus itself.
