    I bought this book because I saw the movie trailer. I didn't know there was a book until a friend told me. I didn't expect much, because I really didn't know much about it. The book held my attention from page one until the end. It was masterfully written. The author painted a picture so brightly that I could see the scenes and smell the smells of the circus as if I were there.

    This movie (if it's the right one I'm thinking of) is beyond amazing! I'd watch it over and over!

    I never saw the movie so I can't offer a comparison but I loved the book. It was well written and a very quick read.

    Loved the book, except for the ending, I needed a little bit more. I have not seen the movie, because I did not want to ruin the book!

    I loved this book. I could not put it down. I still haven't watched the movie because I do not want to ruin the book.

    I really enjoyed this book. I read it after I saw the movie because I liked the movie and I had some friends recommend the book to me. I thought the book was better than the movie.

    I read this book and it is still one of my favorite books. I really felt like I was in the 1920's. I never wanted to see the movie because the book was excellent I didn't think the movie could even come close to the book. It really made you laugh and it definitely made you cry.

    Do not let the movie stop you from reading this book. The entire love story and plot was really heartwarming and written very well. The only downside is that it did lag in some parts, but overall, great read!
