The Night Circus

The Night CircusThe Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Reading this book was like exploring an impossibly-intricate pop-up book that had been cut by the most enchanted scherenschnitte artist who ever lived. The detail, delicacy, endlessly-fascinating characters and scenes and situations -- amazing.

You can read the plot details elsewhere. I'll add one comment: the only film director I would trust with this wonder is Jean-Pierre Jeunet, whose "Micmacs" and "Amelie" are filled with the gentle, magnetic magic this book deserves.
