The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway: a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them both, this is a game in which only one can be left standing. Despite the high stakes, Celia and Marco soon tumble headfirst into love, setting off a domino effect of dangerous consequences, and leaving the lives of everyone, from the performers to the patrons, hanging in the balance.

    Just listened to a bit of this book on Audible and read the reviews. Nothing but RAVES and the narrator sounds great so I will listen to this one and see you on the 19th of January shortly after my birthday and the birth of my first grandchild!!

    Hi Nancy,
    I agree I could find it but it cost too much, so I am for changing the book to the Night Circus. I look forward to seeing everyone at the next meeting.
    Have a very Merry Christmas everyone.

    I just tried as well, Fiona, and I can find it but only for 48 bucks for a paperback. I think we need to just change this one. Scott's other recommend was The Night Circus, so I believe I will change this to that if no one protests. I am guess no one else wants to pay almost 50 bucks for a paperback either.

    I came home from our meet up today, I tried to get Ben Hecht's "A child of the century" on my Kindle, no luck! Called the book stores and the public Library, still no luck.
    Can anyone help me find this book? I look forward to hearing from someone soon. Fiona
