Description

Brought to you by Penguin. 

The magical new novel from the best-selling author of The Night Circus.

Are you lost or are you exploring?

When Zachary Rawlins stumbles across a strange book hidden in his university library it leads him on a quest unlike any other. Its pages entrance him with their tales of lovelorn prisoners, lost cities and nameless acolytes, but they also contain something impossible: a recollection from his own childhood.

Determined to solve the puzzle of the book, Zachary follows the clues he finds on the cover – a bee, a key and a sword. They guide him to a masquerade ball, to a dangerous secret club and finally through a magical doorway created by the fierce and mysterious Mirabel. This door leads to a subterranean labyrinth filled with stories, hidden far beneath the surface of the earth.

When the labyrinth is threatened, Zachary must race with Mirabel and Dorian, a handsome barefoot man with shifting alliances, through its twisting tunnels and crowded ballrooms, searching for the end of his story.

You are invited to join Zachary on the starless sea: the home of storytellers, story-lovers and those who will protect our stories at all costs.

Disappointment

Many great short stories, while the main story has become a drag after chapter 30 (OMG there are 97 chapters).

Into the world of the Starless Sea

Like The Night Circus, Erin once again paints and creates worlds with words, making it easy for readers to open the doors 😉 and step inside.

This novel is intricate, with several stories interwoven, developing throughout the book and progressively merging.
It is certainly one to read a second time.

Well done Erin. We hope you are working on your third book!

A Bizarre Tale

After Night Circus I was so excite for this book that I even pre-ordered it.... My, my what a terrible disappointment. I imagined I would love it... and in the end I couldn't even finish it, let alone like it. It's way too much like hard work. There are NINETY THREE chapters and eventually at Chapter 36 I finally gave up. (Yes I stuck it out for THAT long so no-one can say I didn't try hard enough). Next time Erin brings out a book I will wait to see a few thousand reviews on it before I waste another credit.

Poor choice on my part

Some stories are meant for you and some are not. This book was not for me. I had to actively push through this narrative and it almost put me into a reading slump 3 times. I can appreciate this beauty and its honouring of stories. But I think I need to walk way from Morgenstern and keep walking.

More than one story woven into one

The story is a multitude of separate stories, which also happens to be one story. These stories are woven into one and you are left at the shores of the Starless Sea and the habour to wonder what other adventures await the characters you were introduced to. This story reminds one to open new doors and to go exploring, wondering, meandering, and experience life to its fullest.

Ruined by Dominic Hoffman

The story has moments of brilliance, but as an audio book is unfortunately by Dominic Hoffman's drawl, repeated miss pronunciations, clumsy rhythm, and painful, monotone drone.

A Love Letter to Storytelling

This book is stunning. It is beautiful, lyrical and so atmospheric. It pulls you in and doesn’t let go. It makes you believe in fairytales again.

Verständnisschwierigkeiten im Format Hörspiel

Schade :-/ Ich war großer, großer Fan von Erin Morgensterns Erzählung "the Night Circus" und konnte es kaum erwarten ein zweites Buch von ihr zu hören. Leider zieht mich diese Geschichte nicht annähernd so sehr in ihren Bann. Vermutlich liegt es an dem Format der Geschichte, die in einem Hörspiel zum Teil schwierig nachzuvollziehen ist. Die Perspektiven wechseln, es gibt Vor- und Rückblicke, was in einem Buch ggf. deutlicher durch unterschiedliche Typo oder Kapitel erkennbar ist. In diesem Hörspiel empfand ich es eher als verwirrend. Zum Ende hin wird dies durch verschiedene Spreche deutlicher und dann auch angenehmer/verständlicher zu hören. Insgesamt konnte ich der Geschichte zum Ende hin besser folgen.

Die Geschichte hat, sofern ich es verstanden habe, die "Seele von Erzählungen" als Thema. Deren mystische Schöpfung, bei deren Entstehung und Beendung Aussenstehende bewusst oder unbewusst Hilfestellung geben. Ich kann mir vorstellen, dass diese fast philosophische Betrachtung literarisch Bewanderte Hörer*innen verzaubert. Ich hoffe einfach auf die nächste Geschichte von Erin Morgenstern :-)
