The Traveling Triple-C Incorporeal Circus

We rated this book:


Life is hard enough, but when you’re a ghost, existence is even stranger. You have to maintain your sanity and keep your anger in check (or risk becoming something monstrous), and not only are you stuck in the clothes you died in but in the condition you died in as well. So it can get a little gruesome. Thankfully for Chelsea, her ghostly life is improved by friendships with both the dead (her mentor Carmen) and the living (a mute performer named Cyndricka who can see ghosts). And when she decides to take a trip across the country for her brother’s wedding, both of them are along for a harrowing, peculiar journey.

The Traveling Triple-C Incorporeal Circus is a well-told story about the complexities of friendship, the meaning of mortality, and the beauty and ugliness of humanity. Whether it’s Chelsea trying to resolve her feelings for the ex she left behind, Carmen dealing with being separated from her husband and children, or Cyndricka’s parallel struggles (literally walking across the country while dealing with the worst of humanity), every reader is bound to find something of themselves in one of the characters.

This book is immensely charming, balancing the weird horrors of an afterlife with all of the best and worst of friendship, from quiet moments of comfort to the little misunderstandings that can blow up into huge deals.

The Traveling Triple-C Incorporeal Circus brings a lot of ideas to the table and manages to pay all of them off in satisfying fashion. It’s weird, lovely, dark, and familiar.
