My rating: 4 of 5 stars
most excellent popcorn book! it’s not High Litrachaa, but it is a very fun read. i do plan to read the sequel.
best part of this book: the hero (or antihero, depending on how uptight you are) is a clever, clever thief, but not so clever that he doesn’t get hurt (grievously, sometimes) and not so clever that he always outsmarts everybody else. he’s fallible.
second best part: the dialogue is great. very witty, quick, funny.
third best part: the punch on page 637. hahhahahahahaha! totally unexpected, but ya, of course.
