Behind the scenes at Nottingham City Council. It was predictably dull!

What started off as a design for a cold frame became more of a mini greenhouse. Oops? And it's not even finished yet.

Book Five.

It’s an okay book. Easy to read, sometimes really funny and sometimes really bad. It lacks substance. It lacks believable characters that i want to care about. It’s great to read when you don’t want to think, but that’s about it.

Book Four.

First of all, i would like to clearly state that i very much enjoyed this book. It was interesting, and showed ideas, points of view and characters that are absent from most popular fiction. It was a delight to read about these things.
That said, this book did not excite me. There was nothing driving the book, or the reader, along. The plot was minimal, and not used in any effective way. There was simply no catalyst to get the story going. It meandered along with nothing but the fact that i found the subject matter interesting to keep my attention.

Black & White

While reading a book about an entirely black and white circus, stepping outside into the snow was like stepping into my book.

Book Three.

I am not usually a fan of too much or overly detailed description. I can find it dull, dragging the story along with insignificant details about how many buttons are on someone’s very specifically tailored coat or the exact layout and style of a room of no importance that half a page of story takes place in. I find it unnecessary. With The Night Circus, the vivid and in-depth descriptions are the whole point of the book. They were not insignificant or pointless, they created the entire atmosphere of the book. The plots were weaved between the world created, rather than elbowing useless details of a world into an intricate plot. And it worked. It could see it, i could feel it, i could smell it.

Without the world detailed in such rich description and specifics, the plots would be much more mundane and less thrilling. Even the characters would seem lackluster without the backdrop of the interesting, enthralling and mysterious Circus of Dreams. It really is a story to get lost in.
