Locke and Jean, scoping out a place just before a heist.

OMG KAM you made it BETTER (i can’t decide which one is Locke)

Ginger kitty is totally Locke. I mean, look at the smug little look on his face, like “I can do dis.” And then look at the black kitty’s face, which is totally Jean, and it’s like: “Are you sure? Are you absolutely sure? Are you absolutely, positively sure?”

"You’re a crazy motherfucker sometimes, Locke Lamora."

The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch



I finally read The Lies of Locke Lamora during the Easter holidays, and it is simply a wonderful book (and series, I hope). Characters, friendships, the setting, everything is just so well described with vivid details. I really would love illustrations of the shifting market and the five towers, to name some of the landmarks.

The story is really funny at some points, and at the same time there is enough drama, action and cliffhangers for three books.

The only thing that I found unfortunately is that he designs good female characters, but doesn’t seem to know that he is allowed to actually use them as protagonists. Though this gets a bit better at the end of the book.

As it is, I am looking forward to part two :-)

Re: The Ladies — ohohoho just you wait until you read book 2 and ESPECIALLY book 3. One of the great things about his writing is that he’s constantly improving and getting better about stuff. As soon as you think to yourself, “It’d be great if there were more ________” he puts more ________ in. :D So good. READ THE OTHERS!

PS. Read book 3 and then go back and read TLOLL again. There is a female protagonist there, and you don’t even notice how much she is there until after Republic of Thieves. Trust me on this one.
