No really. Is anything as pure as a heist book? Is anything as good and exciting and forthright as a heist book, I ask you? Then it travels back to the present day where Locke and his band of oddly pleasant crazy thieves are in the midst of their latest—and biggest—con of the nobility of the land of Camorr. For many pages, hell seems content to stay bound…. The city of Camorr has upended the board, and Locke Lamora is one of the scattered pieces.
Locke soon finds out that one can only get so far on their aptitude to bullshit alone. And while Kaz Brekker comes off as a grizzled, hard-bitten, year-old black-and-white film noir anti-hero crammed into the body of a teenager, Locke Lamora is pretty much the opposite The story runs non-linearly, jumping back and forth between the past and the present, and shades in between.
The effect was disorienting at first as the story sometimes overspills the bounds of its plot and I would often find myself drifting between intrigued and indifferent. The world of Camorr is solidly-crafted and bursting with detail and the vivid, oftentimes violent, action unfolds slowly, propelled by political machinations and anchored in complex character development. Seriously, this book is hilarious. There are moments of victory where I whooped with joy, and there are moments of absolute terror, where everything seems as though it will fall apart.
And I think this book works because Locke is such an interesting character, and the author constantly keeps you off guard as to his truths and intent. I also loved how the author never takes the easy way out. Locke is one brilliant son of a bitch—he seems unthreatening and eccentric, until one understood what deep power lay behind his frail facade. I never know where Lynch is going to take us, in this world of thieves and blood and revenge, but I am more than happy to continue along the journey with him!
Gli inganni di Locke Lamora (Gentleman Bastard #1) di Scott Lynch
Dopo aver sopportato gli scherzi del ragazzino, decide quindi di venderlo a Padre Catena, un sacerdote del Tredicesimo Dio, il Disonesto Tutore che protegge i ladri. Locke diventa garrista leader dei Bastardi Galantuomini. Locke finge di essere Lukas Fehrwight, un rappresentante di una famiglia di produttori di liquori di Emberlain che deve trasportare fuori dal paese tutta la cantina prima dello scoppio della guerra civile. Ben presto, il Re Grigio concentra la sua attenzione su Locke e lo costringe ad interpretare lo stesso Re in un incontro con Capa Barsavi, il capo di tutti ladri di Camorr. Le magie infatti non permettono che sia colpito da spade o frecce , ma non fanno nulla contro le percosse.
Gli inganni di Locke Lamora
Dopo delle giornate del genere mi viene solo voglia di aprire un buon libro e di scrivere di Locke Lamora: uno dei miei eroi imperfetti, sempre ammesso che un ladro possa essere considerato un eroe, preferiti. La quarta, poi mi ha subito conquistata: La regola pratica di Locke Lamora era questa: per una buona truffa occorrevano tre mesi di programmazione, tre settimane di prove e tre secondi per conquistare o perdere per sempre la fiducia della vittima. Locke prometteva di essere un perfetto eroe imperfetto, se mi concedete il gioco di parole: Dicono che Locke Lamora non abbia rivali nei duelli. Dicono che sia alto, prestante e fascinoso.
