Just wondering what your opinions are.  I'm about halfway through it, and I like it, I think.  Despite all the different pov and storylines I'm liking the characters.  The descriptions of the different circus features are just too cool...

Update - I finished it this weekend.  It was a great read, very different.  I'm trying to convince my husband to read it now.

 Do you mean Nights at the Circus by Angela Carter? http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0140077030/theendicotstudio

    I just ordered it becaue it is on the Endicott Mythic Fiction reading list  http://endicottstudio.typepad.com/jomareadinglists/ and I've liked so many of the books on it. This one is on it but when I read some of the reviews about it being somewhat jumbled up I changed my mind. Now I think I'll read it!

No, it was actually "The Night Circus" by Erin Morgenstern.  http://www.amazon.com/Night-Circus-Erin-Morgenstern/dp/0385534639/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1328284560&sr=8-1

 

Maybe I'll look into the list you mentioned - I need something new to read!
