Lies of Locke Lamora
Lies of Locke Lamora | Scott Lynch
Only averagely tall, slender, and god-awful with a sword, Locke Lamora is the fabled Thorn, and the greatest weapons at his disposal are his wit and cunning. What Locke cons, wheedles and tricks into his possession is strictly for him and his band of fellow con-artists and thieves.

This book was ok. I found myself wanting to know what happens but also found parts of it slow moving. I also was a fan of the time jumping, it kept taking me out of the story.

A million thanks to @Maike for the recommendation.

So much fun. Cunning, cussing, well-planned heists, disguises, interesting back stories, wonderful writing and great character development.

And a cliffhanger, of sorts. 😉

Listened to the #audiobook. The narrator had very posh pronunciation, reminded me of the Queen at times.

Do you like special editions of books? I do! Especially if it‘s a favorite book because it‘s a good excuse to get another copy... 😂
I actually reread this book via audiobook last month and I think I loved it even more than the first time! These characters and their relationships are amazing (Locke & Jean 💗), the plot keeps you second-guessing yourself, and the world building is 💯! If you‘re into High Fantasy, bump it to the top of your TBR!

Finished this #audiobook today; quite the ride! For a second, I thought Locke was done for, but then I remembered there was a sequel, so it helped me continue reading, knowing it would turn out well - he lusted for life and so was able to defeat the bad guy.

I passed the book along to a fellow coworker who enjoys fantasy novels and still only reads paper books! Made my day 😊

Just finished this monster and I‘ve got to say that while it had excellent banter that was marvelous and I loooooved the heist and conning elements; I can‘t say this was a winner for me 🤭.
The crassness and language, the gore and death and constant angst I experienced at the hands of this book landed it at a solid ⭐️⭐️for me self.
I‘ve read it, it took twists and turns I didn‘t expect, and now I can move on. I probably won‘t pick up the sequel.

I have no idea why this line had me laughing 😂 .”This new fiction had the fictional backing—“ 😂
Liking this one after the initial shock of the crass language. —had to accept that lower classes in this kind of society did speak like that. And it was reasonable for the subject matter. (Though it is a fantasy world so I would have appreciated some fantasy based cussing instead of our own.)

There is some such quote about first touch when thieving from a person and then a second touch. I can‘t find it in the book, but it had to do with the first being okay the second getting one killed.

If you‘re in the market for an excellent fantasy adventure, look no further than the Gentlemen Bastards! This is a super adventure-y, heist-y read, and it is one of a very few 700-ish page chunksters which I did NOT feel would have benefited from considerable trimming. It‘s pretty great on audio, too! There is a fair amount of violence, however. 5 ⭐️

I have a problem here and I‘m not talking about this atrocity of a cover. 🤢
The Hoopla audiobook app makes backing up or going forward a royal pain. The scrubbing bar is SO TINY! If your book is more than a couple of hours long, it‘s an exercise in frustration. Am I missing something?

Scott Lynch creates a fantastical world with intriguing characters in The Lies of Locke Lamora. As the first in a series, he must do plenty of world-building in his island city of Camorr. But that never overshadows the action and excitement of the story line. And his characters are first-rate. It‘s 1 part long-game cons, 1 part thievery, and 2 parts skullduggery.

A Dungeons and Dragons thieves guild adventure come to life! Er, well, book. While it may seem odd to call Lies an incredibly joyous romp considering it's dark and violent occurences, this book is just fun to read. The characters make the novel and Locke's rogueish charisma practically drips off the pages. You'll be captured thru the whole twisting plot. As soon as Squidapus finished this book up he immediately went and bought the next two books!

At first I thought this was just going to be a heist story with a few fantasy tropes pasted it over it, but as the world evolved and the action kicked off, I realized I had been very wrong. Imagine The Name of the Wind meets The Godfather. This isn‘t your epic, sprawling fantasy world, which I enjoyed. It‘s a tale confined to a city situated in a culture and time much like renaissance Venice. Very well told. #fantasy #heist #caper #mafia
