Official Will Elliott Website. The masters of the Circus are the diabolical and sadistic Kurt Pilo Jr. Our main character in the book is Jamie , a young man working dead end jobs in Brisbane and living in a shared apartment with dubious friends, who gets recruited as the sixth clown JJ for the Pilo Circus. Also includes an introduction by Katherine Dunn and an epilogue which hints at possible future books related to this one.
After narrowly avoiding hitting the clown, Jamie dismisses the incident as a bizarre but otherwise unremarkable encounter. Unfortunately, his troubles are just beginning. What will happen? Will Jamie escape or will JJ take over? Highly recommended…. Post a Comment. The twin sides of the MC, so I just figured everyone was Jaime.

Jaime was everyone. Now, about the two of the clowns and this is probably only me , they kinda blended together into my head. Goshy and Doopy seemed like the same clown, and it wasn't until the honeymoon scene which was sheer fucking genius in my opinion; sick and brilliant that I finally put a wedge between the two clowns and separated them. Both spoke in different speech patterns, but when they weren't talking and the author was just describing them doing things, I had a hard time keeping up with who was who.
Gonko, Rufshod, and Winston all had their own separate personalities, but Goshy and Doopy seemed interchangeable. Like I said, though, this was probably just my own brain's problem and not the fault of the author. Speaking of the author, I've never heard of Will Elliott. I don't know his story, but it supposedly explains what he went through while writing this and strengthens most readers' enjoyment of the piece. Which brings me to the price of this book.
Well, kinda blindly. There's this reviewer I trust whole-hog. If she likes a book, it goes on my TBR list, no questions asked. Then I buy said book, no matter the price. Yeah, but only because of that ending. Which made me think People wishing for shit and getting it.
The Pilo Family Circus by Will Elliott
People being set against one another. Everything devolving into an utter clusterfuck of chaos. Yep, the only thing missing was Leland Gaunt, but, when you think about it, Kurt Pilo was kinda that guy. Do not get me wrong. This read like a tribute, not a rip off, so Elliott gets massive points for that. Welcome back to those of you who didn't want spoilers. I just noted why I liked the book. Yeah, ya kinda missed it Sorry about that. Oh well, maybe next time. Probably not. In closing, I dug this book, a lot, but the middle droned on.
The ending was perfect, though, which completely made up for the lackluster midsection. I'm off to read my first bizarro story. Wish me luck. What the heck did I just read? I think I need to read this again because this was so out of the realm But I liked it a lot. It was different and original.
Which is something sorely lacking, these days. Recommended, but be prepared to be confused Oct 03, J. Grice rated it did not like it Shelves: could-not-finish , horror. I know some people loved this book, but it just didn't work for me. I couldn't even finish it. Actual Rating: 4. It's horrorific at times, funny at others and tugged at my heart at other times still. It's fast-paced, or maybe that's me as Actual Rating: 4.
It's fast-paced, or maybe that's me as I read it in 3 days because Spookathon. Still I was entertained and wanting to know what was going to happen through-out the entire book. It occasionally made me think.

The writing was easy to read. I fell in love with Jamie. The characters felt well done to me for their purposes. The plot and world-building really shined to me. I fell in love with the carnival! In a weird way sure, but still. Writing a review is difficult for this book but not for lack of love for it! If this sounds at all up your alley give it a shot!
I can't wait to get the sequel!

My Booktube Channel Sep 05, Bill rated it liked it Shelves: ha-top-books-challange. I am not entirely sure how to review this one. The story idea was very unique and I thought many of the characterizations were quite excellent. It seemed to be flirting with brilliance, but Then I got to know the clowns a little bit more and they somehow left me wanting a bit.
There were definitely a few parts that were laugh out loud funny, but I jus I am not entirely sure how to review this one. Gonko was by far my favorite clown and the rudest and crudest of the lot. He had some truly great dialog. Overall, I am glad that I read it. Note: The author bio and the story of how Pilo came to be written is a very amazing story in itself. View all 9 comments.
Dec 13, Ms. Nikki rated it it was ok Shelves: own-it-pb-or-hc , not-my-type-of-read , skimmed-hard-to-finish-or-unfinis , horror-extreme-horror , just-an-alright-okay-read , recommended-to-me. These crazy clowns cause such a ruckus. It's not your average circus.
They present false smiles, in painted faces. Trip you up with knotted laces. They make strange noises, peeps and whines. This job ain't no joke.
