Matt and Dave bring you page by page guides to the books you love and the books you love to hate.


"Watch out Marco! It's a paper hat tearing, tarot reading, ash blowing ex-girlfriend and she's out for revenge!!" Um, spoiler alert. Welcome to the last in our series of podcasts about Erin Morgenstern's The Night Circus. We've come too far to turn back now. Two starcrossed lovers seem destined to enter a magical duel, one circus owner seems destined for mental insanity and one young man from Massachusetts seems destined for continued obscurity. None of that happens. But it's fun finding out why. We've also got a special bonus soundtrack which will leap out of the book and hump your ears into submission. Intrigued? Then let's begin.. As ever, send your wonderful insights and idiot remarks over to sharkliveroilpodcast@gmail.com or tweet us at @sharkliveroil

"S" to the "Hark" to the "Liver" to the "Oil" are back with the third part of their discussion about Erin Morgenstern's The Night Circus. It's time to talk about Intersections - where worlds collide and separate like snooker balls shooting around an ice rink. Matt and Dave ask the big questions that matter: What's happening to Chandresh? Will Marco and Celia last? and is Bailey ever going to do anything interesting? As ever, get your comments on the book or the cast over to sharkliveroilpodcast@gmail.com or @sharkliveroil on twitter. We're particularly interested in your favourite tent in the circus. If you could visit one - which would it be and why?

The second part of Shark Liver Oil's podcast series about Erin Morgenestern's The Night Circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it, no paper notices on downtown posts and billboards, no mentions or advertisements in local newspapers. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Matt and Dave take apart the second part of the book, called "Illumination", as the circus gets into the swing of things and the challenge between Marco and Cenlia um... hots up? Enjoy - but watch out for those trains!! If you've got anything to say about The Night Circus or Shark Liver Oil, drop us a line at sharkliveroilpodcast@gmail.com.

The Night Circus 1: Primordium

It's a new book for the Sharkliveroil team to get their teeth into. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern is a magical romantic novel set around the kind of circus that you'd actually want to visit (real magic, good food and a distinct lack of scary clowns and tortured animals). In part 1, we'll discuss how the circus comes together and the dark secret competition that lurks in the background. If you want to comment on the book or the cast, drop us a line at sharkliveroilpodcast@gmail.com
