I finally finally finished The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch. I have literally had this book from the library for about 2 months. Before yesterday I had only gotten through about 150 of the 500 pages in the hardcover. It was my goal to get through another 150 yesterday but it just suddenly grabbed me and i finished it up just before the UNC/Duke game started last night. With breaks for a little cleaning and watching Vandy get beat by crappy ass Alabama *sigh*. Tonight the goal is to watch at least one, if not both, of my netflix movies.
So, the book. i really liked it. I had a bit of trouble getting into it obviously but i think it had more to do with my own sort of slump than anything in the book itself. i liked Locke, though i kept picturing him as Sawyer from LOST (the con man thing i guess) and i am pretty sure his description is nothing like Sawyer. I liked the rest of Locke's crew. The plots of the thieves were intricate and daring and i really loved that they just stole to steal, not even necessarily do anything with the money. I give it 6/7 and put his next one on my wish list.
