They say that the Thorn of Camorr can beat anyone in a fight. They say he steals from the rich and gives to the poor.

Publication: Gli inganni di Locke Lamora

They say he’s part man, part myth, and mostly street-corner rumor. And they are wrong on every count. Only averagely tall, slender, and god-awful with a sword, Locke Lamora is the fabled Thorn, and the greatest weapons at his disposal are his wit and cunning. He steals from the rich – they’re the only ones worth stealing from – but the poor can go steal for themselves.

What Locke cons, wheedles and tricks into his possession is strictly for him and his band of fellow con-artists and thieves: Together their domain is the city of Camorr. Built of Elderglass by a race no-one remembers, it’s a city of shifting revels, filthy canals, baroque palaces and crowded cemeteries.

Home to Dons, merchants, soldiers, beggars, cripples, and feral children. And to Capa Barsavi, the criminal mastermind who runs the city. But there are whispers of a challenge to the Capa’s power. A challenge from a man no one has ever seen, a man no blade can touch. The Grey King is coming. Even such a master of the sword as the Thorn of Camorr. As for Locke Lamora. Introducing Locke Lamora, the fantasy genre’s next cult hero.

It is witty, clever, and the same could be said of its protagonist and many of its secondary characters. There are so many names and I could barely keep up with it all, especially having read this over such a long period of time. I realize this review is awful, dw.

Books by Anna Martini (Author of Gli inganni di Locke Lamora)

The world building was done gradually with tiny bits of lamlra that, if you managed to focus while reading them, actually added a nice flavor to the novel and the world itself.

With that said, when I actually did sit down and read it, I enjoyed it a lot, especially the parts with witty dialogues.

But I found myself skim-reading most of the descriptions something I hate doingand when I finally finished it I lxmora glad. Lamora e’ un po come Lupin ma mezzo pirata e mezzo Indiana Jones, un personaggio epico. Nonostante sia una figura dalla dubbia morale vorremmo tutti essere un po come lui e la sua gang di bastardi gentiluomini. Questo libro mi ha fatto volare con la fantasia, attraversare mondi incredibili fatti di descrizioni estremamente reali. Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato.

Questo gruppo di ladri 5 persone segue una strada diversa per fare soldi a palate: Avete presente il film “Ocean’s Eleven”? Da qui si snocciola tutta la vicenda ed entra in gioco un nuovo, enigmatico e letale, personaggio: La trama si alterna tra licke e passato, in cui osserviamo all’opera i “Gentlemen Bastard”.

Alcuni l’hanno definita contorta, ma evidentemente non avevano mai letto nulla di veramente complesso, ad esempio la serie Malazan. I personaggi sono ben caratterizzati e divertenti, ma preparatevi a dei momenti tristi: Qui non ci sono gli eroi glo leggende.

Prende chiaramente ispirazione dalla nostra Llocke di epoca medievale e la amplia grazie all’introduzione di un elemento L’unico problema riguarda la data di uscita dei sequel, a causa di problemi di salute dell’autore. Sono previsti 7 libri per questo ciclo e fino ad ora ne sono usciti 2 in sei anni.

Nothing significant in my abandon, it was cheap and am lgi that into fantasy ingnni general. Too much re-Tolkien and not enough innovation. I recently decided to give it another go, read it all through and bought the 2nd in the series right away.

First of all, it is very well written, plenty of subtle wit. The characters are quite well developed and you can see that the author has a lot of backstory about them. Locke is a bit perfect for my taste, but he is entertaining enough that I let it pass. The second bit is how atmospheric and well-described the world is. Yli is a Venice-built-on-alien-ruins and Lynch totally runs with it.

The somewhat Italian Renaissance names and society fit in perfectly and things are easy to visualize. Set in a modern day crime novel, the plot would have enough twists and turns to keep you riveted. The Gentleman Bastards are confidence tricksters, grifters and con-men. Schemes meet counter-scams and you’re almost expecting a Nigerian prince phishing email to come along.

Every so often, I would come to a point where I would think “but what about X? You know, typical big gaping plot holes in silly books. And, every time, it turned out that what I thought was an oversight was actually built into it and made sense. Finally, unlike many writers who believe that a good plot needs to be confusing, Lynch has kept it very simple and focused. At least after each twist.

Last, how can one resist a novel with ‘contrarequialla’, scantily-clad women gladiators who fight in arenas against sharks? Where this makes sense, rather than ingaanni just “jumping the shark”? That’s only 2 or 3, glorious, pages’ worth, but it shows how well-thought out even minor bits of the story can be because you have two setup scenes before the main combat one with the requalias.

I’m on the fence – descriptions annoy me sometimes. These worked for me, but they’re a biiiiiig part of the book. Consegne illimitate in 1 giorno. Iscriviti ri Amazon Prime: Ulteriori informazioni su Amazon Prime.
