This is a really interesting and moving book, as the novel progresses the reader becomes drawn into this bizarre world where nothing is what you expect. The author made a really good job researching about the circus life in the 30’s and her description of the characters is beautifully done.
Sara Gruen is a talented storyteller that will make your skin get goose bumps as you go through the pages of this intriguing and fulfilling story. You will experience laughs, tears and be completely absorbed into the circus era of the 1930’s; it describes the rough details of that circus life. I was not able to put this book aside. It’s well worth reading it.
