Playful and intensely 5 things about the new book by The Night Circus author Erin Morgenstern.
One star books have to really repulse me to get that rating.
The only redeeming thing about The Night Circus is that I didn't feel the one star compulsion to start a bonfire so I could properly dispose of it, hence two stars, but in this case it does not mean I enjoyed the book at all.
From the Goodreads summary: "But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is u Contains some minor spoilers. From the Goodreads summary: "But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway—a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors.
Unbeknownst to them, this is a game in which only one can be left standing, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will. Despite themselves, however, Celia and Marco tumble headfirst into love—a deep, magical love that makes the lights flicker and the room grow warm whenever they so much as brush hands. Did the person who wrote the description read the same book I read? Or did he get so bored that he fell asleep and was forced to wing it for a deadline?
If that's the case, I feel for the poor guy since I fell asleep reading this a few times, but I don't forgive the lies.
Lie Number One: "A Fierce Competition" What Actually Happens: Instead of reading about a battle of wits, ingenuity, and talent taking place on a magical field you get two slugs racing against each other Yeah, all those extra years might kill the intensity, but think of the emotional investment you make in those slugs.
You can bring your new born baby to see them and go again every year as the fierce competition between the two of them goes on and on and on and on and on Lie Number Two: "A Duel" What Actually Happens: For a significant part of the story the two 'dueling' magicians are raised separately with no knowledge of one another. By the time the magician who was unaware is finally brought up to date they have been collaborating on projects for years Yes, you read that right.
They never stand toe to toe in any sort of competitive sense. They build little attractions for the circus and sometimes they built them together, leaving gaps for the other to fill because they like each other's work.
This is how they 'fiercely compete' during their 'duel. They don't know what they're doing or how to play the game and neither does the reader for most of the book.
I believe this is because the author had no idea how to make them actually compete or what she was doing beyond establishing a lot of overly descriptive scene setting.
The training is just education from two different schools of thought on the subject of magic.
They're not given any idea of how to be the victor. It's an experiment, which is vastly different from training a warrior as this is made to sound.
One slices his daughter's fingers open over and over again to teach her how to heal herself, even smashes her hand to break her bones for a lesson, and the other does not know his ward's name until he is nearly an adult.
Neither of them ever face any consequences for the things they do to the children or the many experimental children before them. The previous "battle" before this one I'm sneering at that lasted thirty-seven fucking years and only ended because one of the magicians committed suicide.
