A magical listen, beautifully read by Jim Dale of Harry Potter fame. This story takes you into a fantasy world that you will wish is real

Magical tale that must be listened to. Jim Dale does a marvelous job bringing life and personality to each and every unique character. This is a rich story with description that puts you right in the field waiting for the circus to appear.

If you like magical settings, this is a great read. I loved how this book whisked me away into a world of enchantment set against an otherwise ordinary historical backdrop. The setting takes the cake, but the beautiful and somewhat tragic love story gives it deeper meaning. Jim Dale’s dreamlike voice is an added bonus.

Ouch! I just finished this strange tale and would have naively recommended it to friends. Thanks for the heads up. I think it was a great advantage that I had no knowledge of what the book was about, no expectations at all. With Jim Dale's help I became immersed in the story and concerned for the characters. I suspect that I could easily become a scarlet scarfed reveur given the chance!

Jim Dale is a great narrator, but I just wasn't feeling The Night Circus. It's a little too atmospheric and "oooooooh, magic!" and not enough story or meaningful character development for me. It's also in present tense, which I think makes it harder to listen to for some reason. Jumped ship halfway through.

Jim Dale (the reader) was fabulous as always but I thought the story was a little dragy and anticlimactic.

I almost didn't finish this book because I found all the jumping around in time and between points of view confusing. I am so glad I pressed on, however, because as all the pieces started falling together I got totally caught up in the story. It was such a unique concept. I even found myself wishing the Cirque des Reves actually existed. In some ways listening to the audio version made the story harder to follow, but Jim Dale (the reader) just has a way of making any story come to life. I could listen to him talk all day long. I agree with Puckish's comment that the story is a little anti-climatictic but other than that, I really enjoyed this book.

(not so much) spoiler alert: anticlimax. this story was a roller-coaster - plot, plot, and then more plot heading up hill... and then a steep crash to the end. i really liked the interactive thinger online - http://www.nightcircus.co.uk/Profile/puck - for the opulent descriptions. i picked up wanting more of the story, and for the intrigue of the website to be explained, but i am really still more compelled by the website than the book. which kind of defeats the purpose?

i really enjoyed the reader's voice and performance a lot

I do wonder at times, if I would feel differently about a book if I read it instead of listened or vice versa. Well I listened to this one and the reader's voice did add something to my experience. It was a totally delightful experience and I didn't have any comparisons with similiar stories. I just enjoyed this one.
