THE NIGHT CIRCUS...
Time for some TALK about what you thought...
1. The Night Circus is not written in a linear timeline..
Did you find the structure of the book disorienting?
Do you think it was effective in mirroring the nature of the circus
or did it just annoy you?
2. The novel frequently changes narrative perspective.
How does this transition shape your reading of the novel
and your connection to the characters?
Why do you think the author chose to tell the story
from varied perspectives?
3. The novel opens with a quote from Oscar Wilde...
A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight,
and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.
What are your thoughts on this quote and why the author chose it?
Who was a dreamer in this story?
and what is their punishment for being so?
