Cirque Du Freak #1: A Living Nightmare: Book 1 in the Saga of Darren Shan (Cirque Du Freak: The Saga of Darren Shan)



Steve was the center of attention that Friday. The whole class crowded around and begged for his story. They wanted to know what had poisoned him, how he'd survived, what the hospital had been like, if they operated on him, if he had any scars, and so on.

~Cirque du Freak (The Darren Shan Saga 1); Darren Shan

  1. I noticed now one is asking who poisoned Steve. I think that would have been my first question.

  13. I saw the movie before I read the book, maybe unwise, as now I have no need to read the book. I did enjoy the film though.
