I’ll be blunt up front and share that The Lies of Locke Lamora lmora one of my favorite books this year. Was that enough to show you how good the characterization mentiraa It felt like years went by while I tried as mentiras de locke lamora get to The Good Stuff. His bright gray eyes alone had any sense of distinction; he was a man the gods might have shaped deliberately to be overlooked. I know my locje little brother would.
Well, it is cool. Like mfntiras wife I hit a bit of a soft patch early on, though for me it was that I was finding the point of view very ‘surface’ sharing So, I was surprised to discover we owned this book, since it’s a very well known book but nobody in my house had ever mentioned it to me. So the place, ah, the harbor city of Camorr, with shadowed back alleys, complex canals and charming luxury. And omg peoples I read hundreds of books per year and am a rabid fan of many.
Scott Lynch, you overachiever. An intruder kills Bug and nearly Jean and Locke, who swear revenge.
The Lies of Locke Lamora (Gentleman Bastard, #1) by Scott Lynch
Lynch introduces us to a gang of intelligent, flamboyant and charismatic thieves called the Gentleman Bastards around whom this mehtiras and I assume the entire series revolves.
Yeah, that was pretty cool. But if you keep going, the payoff is well worth the effort. Around the Year i But boy oh boy, when you start to understand the world; this vivid, real, complex and crazy world; it becomes a literal challenge to put the book down.
So I knew it was a flattering comparison, but at the time, I Back when I was first published, people made a lot of comparisons between me and Scott Lynch. This was my first time reading anything by Scott Lynch and I’m really impressed, he is a fantastic author and extremely talented.
Nearby, Jean Tannen lay in the same moist muck while Galdo pretended mostly to kick his ribs in. For postponing reading this book for a really long time. Locke is one brilliant son of a bitch—he seems unthreatening and eccentric, until one understood what deep power lay behind his frail facade.
This is an incredibly fun adventure novel.
And I laughed so much because it’s absolutely hilarious and clever and witty and insanely clever and did I mention how clever it is yet??!? Nobody is safe in this book, and you geniunely believe that anyone left alive could die on the next page by a random unlucky strike to the back of the head from a penny dropped from a height. Vorchenza agrees when Locke has shared the location of the stolen money; he tells her that Raza has hidden his treasure on a waste barge, and instructs her to destroy the plague ship and its crew before Raza mengiras use it to infect the city.
Despite his age, he’s as fiery, fierce and brave as ten grown men, if not more. Which means I should have something to tell you about it. The beginning of his book is stronger than mine. There are characters mentioned all through out, but have yet to be introduced, I personally want to meet locke’s lost love sooner rather than later, but that has yet to happen.
Lots of fantasy fans quite like a blank to project themselves onto – but I’m not one of them.
Locke – the infamous Thorn of Camorr, Jean and Bug were my personal favourites within the group but the camaraderie presented surrounding the gang was amazing – almost making us as the reader feel part of the ensemble – as we were privy to the cons, the secrets and also the stories revolving the characters youths.
Better yet, a fantasy world version of the Renaissance with an intricate system of magic and a complex set of political conspiracies to add some flair. And he deserves the world. Locke races back to the tower from which he escaped and manages to convince Vorchenza and the Salvaras of the danger, and the devices are defused.
Which loosely translates to: That would have been fine, if all of these flashbacks were interesting. I enjoyed it from page one, although I must admit it too 5 Holy shit what did I just read Stars. The fantasy world is described in painstaking detail which was a bit too much for me at some point. Locke is the best thief I’ve ever read about.
The Lies of Locke Lamora
Well, put my headphones down. Maybe my top five. Under Locke’s leadership, the Gentleman Bastards are known as a small gang of gentrified but petty thieves and pickpockets, and their dues, though regularly paid, are relatively small. I actually read pages of loce book in a day right after getting back from work, sleeping hours were sacrificed and mentieas I regret it? And if instead of a handsome, tepid and understated George Clooney in the lead, we had a short guy who can’t swordfight a whit, and has a bit of an anger management issue?
Whereas Locke gets beaten up and he just lies in the dirt until Jean saves him. Ironically a decent thief. Okay, how about, a short list of everything perfect about this book? Complications arise everywhere and the Gentleman Bastards are lamor in all kinds of troubles. Okay, so I have to admit that in the mentirxs of all this blah-blah-blah-ing and skim-skim-skimming, this sometimes happened: Kind of ok, just that. Don’t get me wrong, Locke Lamora is not a good guy in anyway.
The book moves back and forth, between different events in different settings and time spans. And yes, they are twins, mentirzs makes it even better somehow. I liked that our protagonists were in true danger at some point, and they definitely did not emerge unscathed.
