The Night Circus: 2 Stars

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

The first chapter immediately grabbed much attention with the promise of mystery, intrigue, and magic. My attention and excitement were quickly let down, however. 

The book became mundane, predictable, and boring. I knew the ending of the book by the third chapter. The excitement of a mysterious circus and real magic were wasted on a silly, predictable, boring love story. The only reason I finished the book is because I listened to the audiobook, read by Jim Dale. As my dad always says, "Jim Dale could read the phone book and I'd listen."  Frankly, I would have preferred the phone book.
