Is it possible to give a book six stars? Seven?

I am not a big fan of fantasy novels but the Lies of Locke Lamora is currently my #1 forerunner for "books I would most desperately like to see turned into an HBO 12-part mini-series." It's a marvelous con book with a serious of cons that turn into double-crosses that turn into triple-crosses where the fantasy world serves as a convenient backdrop to get away with audacious plans that normally wouldn't come off. It is one of the best planned and plotted books I've ever read which manages to do what crime books rarely accomplish -- follow through on the plots and bring it all to a satisfying conclusion. Usually something is lost or there's a big chunk of deus ex at the end, but Lies of Locke Lamora did not let me down.

I totally love this book. I've already passed it along to my Dad to spread the meme. ( )

Basically Ocean's Eleven (or The Sting) meets The First Law, but not as intriguing as the First Law books were. Worth a read/listen though, for sure, and I'll read more in the series. ( )

In a Venez-esque city state a merry crew of orphans-turned-confidence tricksters try to go about their shady business, but get entangled in larger, darker events. One of the most entertaining books I've ever read, "The Lies of Locke Lamora" has it all: memorable antiheroes, oodles of witty repartee, consant thrills, an exciting conspiracy, surprisingly touching helpings of pathos, and the merest sprinkling of magic. I cannot think of a novel I'd recommend more warmly than this one. ( )

I really loved the Gentleman Bastards. I felt their pain, celebrated their victories, marvelled at the deceptions... absolutely adored this book.

For fear that I will cross the line between review and spoiler I will say no more but that I highly recommend this book. ( )

At the height of the long wet summer of the Seventy-Seventh Year of Sendovani, the Thiefmaker of Camorr paid a sudden and unannounced visit to the Eyeless Priest at the Temple of Perelandro, desperately hoping to sell him the Lamora boy.
Citater

We don't believe in hard work when a false face and a good line of bullshit can do so much more.
Locke is our brother and our love for him knows no bounds. But the four most fatal words in the Therin language are 'Locke would appreciate it.'
Rivaled only by 'Locke taught me a new trick'.
Catbridges were another legacy of the Eldren who’d ruled before the coming of men: narrow glass arches no wider than an ordinary man’s hips, arranged in pairs over most of Camorr’s canals and at several places along the Angevine River. Although they looked smooth, their glimmering surfaces were as rough as shark’s-hide leather; for those with a reasonable measure of agility and confidence, they provided the only convenient means of crossing water at many points. Traffic was always one-directional over each catbridge; ducal decree clearly stated that anyone going the wrong direction could be shoved off by those with the right-of-way.
