Vampires are stereotypically mean, murderous creatures. But in Darren Shan’s Cirque Du Freak, that is all different. Cirque Du Freak is an awesome book.

The book is about a middle school boy, Darren Shan, who gets tickets to see an outlawed freak show. Little does he know, the show the will change his life. Darren sees a vampire, a wolf man, and many more strange people. He stays afterward and Mr. Crepsley, someone from the freak show, convinces Darren to become a vampire. He becomes a vampire does and the book follows him through all the things they encounter. And if you like the first book, there are eleven other books in the series and a movie is coming out next year.

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a book that packs a scary story and a comedy at the same time. The book is very quick to read and the story is easy to follow. So read this book if you’re looking for an interesting storyline and some strange characters.
