Cirque Du Freak a living nightmare is great, it was almost the best book I have read this summer. When a vampire was first introduced, I was very very very excited! One Thing that I noticed is that the main character, Darren, is the same name of the author whose name is Darren Shan, I thought this was very interesting, and thought that maybe, just maybe wanted a teeny little bit more recogniton, what do you think? Anyway, it was just plainly a great read over the summer, and I am also going to continue reading the other eleven books!!!! This book contains vampires, blood, and some exremely scary and some gruesome parts. If you do not like what I just listed, then please, do not read the book, for feat of puking.
