The Night Circus

The Night Circus - Erin Morgenstern 3.5 stars, really. It's lush and lyrical and poetic and mystical and magical, the prose dense with imagery and sensuous detail. Highly imaginative, and I would have given it more stars if more had happened, but ultimately I felt it could have done with less (albeit luscious) description. It seemed a little self-indulgent, frankly, and not quite dangerous enough.
