The Thief is a high fantasy with, like any other high fantasy on this planet, a journey the characters undertake Gen, the main character was a pleasant surprise While I first thought he was a feminine character, I was proved wrong quite early in the story Oops That s because many have compared this to Graceling and, as we know, that book s lead character is a girl.But I loved male Gen I was enchanted by his quick witted personality and humour He wasn t boring or tedious but instead full of...

    My main reason for reading The Thief was so I could read the sequel The Queen of Attolia that I ve heard is superb and far better than this first installment I actually set myself up for quite an underwhelming experience with this book based on reviews and the fact that I m not the biggest fan oftraditional fantasy with magical realms and such I never could stand The Lord of the Rings However, the story was interesting, the writing excellent and the protagonist was a witty, deviou My main reason for reading The Thief was so I could read the sequel The Queen of Attolia that I ve heard is superb and far better than this first installment I actually set myself up for quite an underwhelming experience with this book based on reviews and the fact that I m not the biggest fan oftraditional fantasy with magical realms and such I never could stand The Lord of the Rings However, the story was interesting, the writing excellent and the protagonist was a witty, devious little narrator that kept me entertained throughout.I love the world that Turner has created, even though we ve seen so little of it so far this only served to further pique my interest I see a lot of potential for this series and I have already ordered a copy of The Queen of Attolia.There is a twist that I thought was pretty obvious, and usu...

    This was another book my wife insisted that I read It was our before bed read aloud book last month.Reading 10 15 pages a night, the first half of the book was enjoyable, but unfolded rather slowly I was a bit puzzled about why my wife was so enthusiastic about the book Then, about half way through, the excitement and tempo increased a few notches, and it become a real page turner.This is a fantasy novel, but...

    I m glad I heard that the sequels are better because I m not sure I would ve finished this otherwise It s a decent high fantasy world with good writing, but the first half of the book is pretty slow Gen basically gets out of prison, takes a bath, eats some oatmeal, and travels foreverrrr The story also spends a lot of time establishing the gods but it does pick up a bit by the end.So it s kind of slow and not particularly engaging, but that doesn t matter too much since it s a short read I m glad I heard that the sequels are better because I m not sure I would ve finished this otherwise It s a decent high fantasy world with good writing, but the first half of the book is pretty slow Gen basically gets out of prison, takes a bath, eats some oatmeal, and travels foreverrrr The story also spends a lot of time establishing the gods but it doe...
