Cirque Du Freak #1: A Living Nightmare : Book 1 in the Saga of Darren Shan
6 journalers for this copy...
"Darren Shan seems like your average boy--he likes playing football with his mates, passing notes in class and loves spiders. Then, one day, his best mate Steve gets tickets for a banned freak show and Darren starts experiencing things that no average boy would dream of. At the Freak show he sees a limb-chewing wolf man, a woman who can grow a beard in front of your very eyes, a snake boy and a goat-eating tarantula called Madame Octa. But what about the mysterious people in blue-hooded robes whose faces you never see? And is Mr Crepsley really a vampire?
Don't be deceived by the facetious tone of the narrator, this book will have you screaming out in revulsion and horror. Wrap yourself up in your duvets and get prepared to be scared. This is outrageously gruesome:
Anyway, that's enough of an introduction. If you're ready, let's begin. If this was a made-up story, it would begin at night, with a storm blowing and owls hooting and rattling noises under the bed. But this is a real story, so I have to begin where it really started ... It started in the toilet.
Cirque du Freak is Darren Shan's first novel and the first in a series highlighting Darren's adventures and misadventures. You'll be baying for blood if you miss out."

I've PMed margih for her address and will get this in the mail to her shortly (and update this entry when I do).
UPDATE 25-JUN-2006: With woosang's permission, this book is taking a slight detour through the US before heading back to Europe. Both SandDanz and wss4 are collecting and reading this series and neither has read book 1 yet. So I'm sending this off to SandDanz in Indiana on Monday, June 26th, who will then send it on to wss4 when she'd done, and then wss4 will send it on to Margih in Finland. Thanks Yvonne, for letting me make sure all my other book pals get to read this first in the series.)
Sent to SandDanz on 26-Jun-2006 via First Class Mail with Delivery Confirmation # 9101010521297199911486.
I then got involved in a conversation with cherie and sand about these books and decided that maybe I should read them.
So I am thrilled to have been allowed to pop into this bookring. I will put this book at the top of my TBR pile and get it moving again ASAP.
Will be mailing this on to Margih as soon as I have a mailing address.
Thanks again for allowing me to join this ring.
