The Night Circus - Hope Studios' Book Club
The Night Circus by Erin Morganstern was one of those fantastical fantasies that I couldn't wait to read! I loved reading Water for Elephants and used to be hooked on an HBO series called Carnivale,so I knew I was going to love this book. I couldn't wait to tuck into bed each night to read about the circus and dream about it all night.
I would definitely be a red scarf wearing "rêveur" if I attended this circus!
Here are a few questions to get us started:
** What did you think of the change in narrators and shifting from past to present? Confusing? Insightful?
** What role does time play in the novel? From Friedrick Thiessen's clock to the delayed aging of the circus developers to the birth of the twins—is time manipulated or fated at the circus?
~Next Month, we will talk about Major Pettigrew's Last Stand!~
