The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it, no paper notices plastered on lampposts and billboards. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within these nocturnal black-and-white striped tents awaits an utterly unique, a feast for the senses, where one can get lost in a maze of clouds, meander through a lush garden made of ice, stare in wonderment as the tattooed contortionist folds herself into a small glass box, and become deliciously tipsy from the scents of caramel and cinnamon that waft through the air".
The descriptions of the circus are magical and made me want to visit a circus even though nothing would compare to the "Le Cirque des Rêves". All though life at the circus is amazing behind the scenes there is a battle between two illusionist which is what the tragic tale is really about. I will not disclose anymore, in fear of ruining it for you.
If you have read any of these books what did you think? I have to admit that, "Me Before You" has been my favourite read this year.
