Format: Taschenbuch
Jennifer Egan's The Invisible Circus is a triumphant first novel. The riveting plot and fascinating characters make this book a page-turner, and the thematic reflections on memory and family ties keep the reader thinking of this book long after the last page. The gripping plot is at once a mystery and love story: Phoebe goes on a quest to understand her sister Faith so that she can begin her own life, free from the bonds of the unresolved family issues that Faith's life and mysterious death created. The portrayal of the relationship between Phoebe and Faith reflects more insightfully the bond between siblings than any other description I have read. Phoebe's impulsive trip to Europe results in a beautifully written adventure, filled with engaging vignettes and believable characters. Ultimately, however, it is not only the well wrought characters or carefully constructed plot that makes you love this book. Rather what makes this book a cut above are the stimulating reflections on the nature of memory, the search for transcendence, and the impact of even fleeting relationships on shaping everyday existence. The Invisible Circus will haunt you, leaving you pondering the elusiveness of memory and the ephemeral nature of experience. Faith's search for 'real life,' and the tragic consequences of her search prompts the reader to reflect on the nature of the ordinary versus the unusual, the struggle for balance between routine and risk. Ultimately this book helps the reader achieve a moment of transcendence, the highest achievement both in fiction and life.

I loved this book and couldn't put it down! While it is successful in exploring the feeling that most of us brought up in the 70's had of eating leftovers from the 60s party; it is even better at portraying the excitement, danger, loneliness, and naivite that are part and parcel of a girl's first trip to Europe. I too was there, at the tail end of the '70's, and Egan is absolutely on target. She has created a picaresque novel with a female lead character who doesn't die, have a baby, or suffer incestuous abuse. How refreshing!
Yes, some of the relationships seem improbable, there is some adolescent wish fulfilment in the relationship between Wolf and Phoebe, but I didn't mind. I thought the relationship was fun and romantic, and Wolf's dialogue and attitude was realistic enough to me to keep me glued to the page. Okay, I fell in love with him. I loved the scene where Phoebe meets Wolf in Europe for the first time! To me the extraneous stuff was in her mother's fantasy second marriage, and her brother's career. Admittedly, this book will appeal more to women than men.
I was surprised to read above that they were making a movie out of it. It's suitable material, but I can't help but anticipate that Hollywood will make a mess out of it.
Loved it, Loved it, Loved it. So go ahead and Buy it!

Format: Taschenbuch
THE INVISIBLE CIRCUS is a triumph of style over substance. Haunting and lyrical, it resonates powerfully with any of us who grew up just a little too late for the counterculture, and in the shadow of a more glamourous sister who embraced it wholeheartedly. Thankfully, most of our sisters didn't end up like poor Faith. Jennifer Egan has a gorgeous touch with words, and even depictions of counterculture language, drug use, and activities sound less quaint and embarrassingly trite than usual. She has great use of metaphor. However, her male characters are somewhat cardboard...we know that Wolf is great in bed, but we have no idea what motivates him, and the Great Climactic Confessional Moment falls somewhat flat, as we still don't know where his head is. Likewise, the character of the brother is an anachronism, in that he is a software company millionaire in 1978 -- well before software company millionaires were a dime a dozen. Overall, though, a worthwhile read, and I look forward to the film, due out next year.

Von Ein Kunde am 2. August 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
The book deals with the disillusioned teenagers in the Post-Vietnam War era. An ambitious book that attempts to disclose the minds of the most perplexing individuals, such as Phoebe. However, I have to say the writer is weak in portraying the uniqueness of the characters and I am particularly disappointed with the leading male character- Wolf. He gives the best part of the story about Faith, but his relationship with Phoebe just doesn't seem real or true to me. I am not sure if they were really in love, even though they both confessed so. It is an easy reading, not bad.

This book becomes a part of you. It comforts you and haunts you, follows you wherever you go in life. I've taken some very important lessons from between those pages and I will carry them with me throughout life. The author is extremely good at bringing all the elements of a good book (excitement, love, humor) together in one beautiful story. It is so well written, you don't even feel like you're reading...it's as if you are experiencing the tale itself. I was overwhelmed with anticipation for the end to come, but when it finally did, I was devastated that it was over

Von Ein Kunde am 7. Juli 1997
Format: Taschenbuch
_Invisible Circus_ is a fast and powerful read, perfect for the beach. I was absorbed fully for the three or four days it took me to plow through it, reading every second I could and unable to put it down. But once it was over, I was a little disappointed by one thing: I really felt some of Phoebe's European experiences to be a little bit of a stretch, too many unsupportable coincidences. But the language is beautiful, Ms. Egan is a talented storyteller, and overall Phoebe's search for her sister's narrative is powerful and mesmerizing. Definately worth a read
