It was difficult to follow in the beginning as there were so many foreign names to try to remember - people and places, especially because the characters were displaced for so much of the story. By the end, however, when I had a better scope of things, it turned out to be a fantastic tale with satisfying ending. Not what I'd expected from Melina Marchetta after reading Looking for Alibrandi but I'm happy nonetheless!

the sex was unnecessary but the story was so captivating! I hated the ending because I want to know what happens next!

It was a good story but there were quite a lot of jarring moments and mentions to modern day Earth that took me away from the story and its believability. But I am keen for the next in the series.

want to listen again :-) the characters (including the circus itself) were fantastical and I want to meet them all.
