Cirque du Freak by Darren Shan

cirque du freak coverFreak shows – not for me. But these Cirque du Freak books (there are 12) seem to be very popular with the guys, and I just watched the trailer for the movie coming out in October; it looked pretty good, so I decided to check the first book out.

I understand its appeal to some – weird, freaky stuff, a spider that paralyzes people with one bite, a snake boy, a controlling vampire, and some major mishaps for our young main character who shares his name with the author. It’s a fast read with a cliffhanger ending that makes you want to read the next one. So, if simple writing and freak shows sound like something you’d enjoy, by all means, come and check these out! The first one is Cirque du Freak: A Living Nightmare.

PS: The trailer I watched is at this link. Of course, watch it with earphones on! http://www.trailerspy.com/trailer/4882/Cirque-du-Freak-The-Vampires-Assistant-Trailer
