Cirque Du Freak A Living Nightmare is a great book that was wrote by Darren Shan. In this Book The character Darren is a normal kid in a normal town, but things seemed a little to boring for him an his friend steve. Until There lives change forever, But it was all because of one little piece of paper. Steve found a flyer for a freak show called the Cirque Du Freak. They snuck out and went to the freak show. Freak shows are Illegal so they have to keep a very low cover until they get there. At first it was fun until Steve noticed that one of the people that worked there was a real vampire that he read about in one of his books. When he found this out both Darren and Steve’s lives changed forever. I recommend this book to people who like a little bit of suspense in the books that they read even to the people that don't because you could be surprised on how much you love this book.
