the first book in the darren shan sega a.k.a. cirque du freak series there are 12 books in the series. the first books name is actully 'a living nightmare'.. just to let you now. its about a boy (darren) who goes to the cirque du freak (circus of freaks) with his friend (steve) and just trying not to ruin it for you lets just say that things go wrong... REALLY wrong.. so later darren has to become a vampire because of the incident and has to leave his normal life behind and start a new crazy one in his new world of vampirism... the genre is fantasy/thriller/fiction.. and i think the series are really good.. cheesy at some parts, but otherwise, good.

I loved this book. for a vampire series, it is not like the others, and is an interesting plot. You should read it if you like exciting adventures.

This book is a grotesque for the younger crowd, but if your in to this kind of thing, you won't want to miss out any of the 11, soon to be 12, books.

This was the best book I ever read. It was suprisingly scary. One of the books in the series I read in less tha a day. I almost never put the book down. I like the big spider in the story. READ IT! [Series: Saga of Darren Shan #1]

Beware- it is chilling/freaky/wonderful/and graphic!!!!!!!!! Very good! It is about Darren a boy obsessed with spiders, and steals one from a vampire, who's part of a freak show. He shows the spider to his best friend and his friend is bit. In order to save his friend from a slow painful death, Darren has to make a bargain with the vampire- let his friend die, or become the vampire's assistant. I could NOT put this book down and read it in a day!!!

It was pretty good and slightly scary at certain moments. it is about a regular boy who goes to a not so regular freak show. Overall I would give Cirque Du Freak a thumbs up. [Series: Saga of Darrne Shan #1]

I thought this was a very good book, and a fun read. Darren (the boy in the story, also the same name as the author) goes to a freak show, & wierd things go on, like a poisionous spider named Madam Octa, a vampire and many other freaks and oddities ....you'll have to read to find out!

Darren and his friend Steve find themselves going to an old theater in the middle of the night to see an illegal freak show. After the show Darren finds out Steve's terrifying wish to become a vampire, all the while trying to think of a way to make the poisonous performing spider, Madam Octa who he saw at the show, his own. Darren makes an error that will put himself and the people he knows in danger. Darren has to choose between the life he has always known or to fulfill a promise that, no matter what he picks, will change his future forever. People who like horror movies and scary stories will be sure to enjoy CIRQUE DU FREAK. [Series: Saga of Darren Shan #1]
