2.5 stars, too many threads left dangling,
This review is from: The Night Circus (Paperback)
Where this book excels is in the scene-setting and world building of the circus. This is fantastically done and I would give 5 stars for this; however, the story/ plot itself is too thin and doesn't tie up. There are too many unanswered questions.
I found some of the characters were unnecessary and didn't feel right in the story and yet they ended up with a big role in the end. I think that this story would have been better as a pair or even a trilogy; this would have allowed the author to actually tie up the loose ends and explain everything. Book 1 could have then started with how the challenges came about!
A very thick book for not a lot of story.
