Praise for The Lies of Locke Lamora
 
Fresh, original, and engrossing . . . gorgeously realized.George R. R. Martin
 
Right now, in the full flush of a second reading, I think The Lies of Locke Lamora is probably in my top ten favorite books ever. Maybe my top five. If you havent read it, you should. If you have read it, you should probably read it again.Patrick Rothfuss, New York Times bestselling author of The Name of the Wind
A unique fantasy milieu peopled by absorbing, colorful characters . . . Lockes wit and audacity endear him to victims and bystanders alike.The Seattle Times
 
A true genre bender, at home on almost any kind of fiction shelf . . . Lynch immediately establishes himself as a gifted and fearless storyteller, unafraid of comparisons to Silverberg and Jordan, not to mention David Liss and even Dickens.Booklist (starred review)
 
High-octane fantasy . . . a great swashbuckling yarn of a novel.Richard Morgan.… (mais)

    The Swords of Lankhmar por Fritz Leiber (Rouge2507)
    Rouge2507: I'm convinced that "Fafhrd and Grey Mouser" books from Fritz Leiber are one of Lynch's sources of inspiration for Locke Lamora.

Wonderful, funny, sad and ultimately a great read. ( )

Gave up at 16 %. I just didn't care about Locke and his gang. ( )

I had an Audible credit to use. I was in the mood for a story about a con man, and [b:The Lies of Locke Lamora|127455|The Lies of Locke Lamora (Gentleman Bastard, #1)|Scott Lynch|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1386924569s/127455.jpg|2116675] was in my wishlist already. So I downloaded it and entered a one of the most fun narratives I've experienced in a while. I won't even try to summarize the intricately interwoven plotlines. But I will say that Lynch's world is rich and real-feeling, and I can't wait to go back into it (as soon as I have my next Audible credit).

[Audiobook note: the reader, Michael Page, is a wonder! I thoroughly enjoyed his performance and will be buying more books simply based on his participation.]

[Re-read: December 2016. Still amazingly good.] ( )

Fun adventures of a team of con artists who lie, cheat and steal their way through a fantasy version of Venice. A little brutal at times and I found the last fight scene unbelievable, but overall quite enjoyable. ( )
  yaj70 | Jan 22, 2024 |
Far too narratively off-the-wall for my taste, to say nothing of the dialogue, which I personally find to be hideously - seemingly intentionally - cliche.

To my eyes, this is a pulp, a dime novel. My friends enjoyed it, though, and so might you. ( )

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.

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.
