I completely loved this book! The imagery was so vivid, I actually wish that this circus existed so I could visit it! There were a LOT of characters and a lot of directions that this story was going at first, but I loved the characters (all but 2, of course) and didn't get confused, although I've read a lot of people had trouble with it.
I believe this is one of those books that you'll either love or you'll hate it, and obviously I'm on the "love" side. This will be the book that I talk about for the rest of the year, I'm quite sure. An amazing first novel, I hope that Morgenstern is able to keep it up!
