When I read the night circus I was compelled to read it cover to cover. When reading the starless sea I had a hard time wanting to even pick it up to read 3 pages at a time. After 170 pages I put it down and returned it to the library. I feel like most of the story is explaining what a room looks like. It’s excessive. I also found my thoughts trailing off a lot. Sure maybe it got better after 170 pages but I just couldn’t get into it.

Enthralling from the first page

A fascinating and intricate story that draws the reader gracefully into a world of curious possibilities. A great read for people who love books and libraries.


great book but I received a different edition from the one that was advertised to me

Beautiful, lyrical, perfect.

I love this story and this edition of the book is gorgeous. I love the stenciled edges and beautiful end papers. Great for my collection.

beautiful book and plot
