The magic of looking over your shoulder and updating at least the books you have been reading with the touch of a few numbers in the date setting feature.
This was our book club book for the month of October. Ironically enough, we are still somewhat on the circus theme, albeit on a different page. I found that the first part of this book was harder to get through - it is a down-on-your-luck story to begin with, and a darker portrait of North America. The story shifts and turns, and although it doesn't resolve in to a completely happy ending, this was a good book.
