Hello there! Sorry that nothing has been updated, for the past few days I’ve had a lot of neck and back pain and didn’t go online much. I am better now and we can resume with the book club. What shall we read next? Send in your ideas, and if you still want to talk about The Night Circus then that’s great too. Happy reading!
sunday-storm said: I read The Nightcircus in April of this year. I found a copy in my library and I loved the cover (the Dutch one) and the story seemed interessting too. So I took it with me. I started reasing it and I couldn't stop. I wanted to know more and more. And then I finished it. It was over and I had to take it back to the library. But not before I promised myself to buy my own copy.
That’s great, this book does seem to attract lots of readers. I couldn’t stop reading it when I got it either. It’s the worst when you become attached to a book and have to return it to the library. What did you think of the characters? Were you happy with the ending?
I’m from Puerto Rico :) You should definitely see Peter Pan; I know you’ll love it… The ending was easy in the sense that it was all internal, right now I don’t remember much about it but I think there was a part where Celia and Marco were in the same body? or something like that… and it’s like you said, there should have been more twists like Celia’s father ruining everything or something. Again, I don’t really remember that much because I read it a while ago. I liked Bailey, and loved the attraction between him and Poppet (I always love the struggle characters pass through before admitting their attraction) I liked Isabel; I think she was one of the most real characters in the story: not a complete bitch but actually a human being who hurt and tried to make others happy. DOn;t worry about the names, I myself don’t remember them very well either… Another scene I loved and forgot to mention was when Marco and Celia passed the night. It was literally the most beautiful love-making scene I ever read.
I liked how Isabel controlled so much even though she didn’t know it, with that spell of hers. It’s so cool because sometimes it’s the little things that keep something going, and the “unimportant” people handle it. I liked Isabel a lot too, and I hated that she didn’t get the guy she wanted. I would have liked for her to find someone. Celia is amazing though, I’m glad she and Marco got together in the end. I loved how she could change the color of her clothes, that’s such a cool power to have. And yeah, that night scene was pretty cool. The book that Marco had, the one that kept the circus going, is so interesting. What did you think of their mentors? I hated both, Celia’s dad was cruel, and Marco’s mentor rarely visited him. He had such a lonely life. Which one would you have liked to study with? I think I would have chosen Marco’s mentor, because he gave Marco a lot of books. So one thing I don’t really get, does Celia’s father ever die? I know he like made himself disappear somehow, and he was stuck like that, but he and the other mentor were already incredibly old, and I wonder if he would have stuck around the circus forever. And as for Celia and Marco, do they just stay in the circus too, traveling with it for eternity? I wonder, if when Bailey, Poppet, and Widget get old, if they circus will continue or if it will just end.
