#reviewsdaytuesday! The Lies of Locke Lamora. Middle-Age adventure with a dash of fantasy and even a little sci-fi…maybe. The main adventure is enchanting and engrossing, which makes the road blocking “interlude” chapters annoying despite being fascinating and very well written. Though ultimately, the depth they provide makes them forgivable.
So without spoiling anything…think of your favorite heist movie, with its genius protagonist, crack teams, and convoluted schemes. Then mix in a meticulously built fantasy world and some characters you actually care about and you’ll have a pretty good idea of what The Lies of Locke Lamora will deliver.
…convoluted schemes in a city where staying alive is a feat in itself. *
Fine, detailed and subtle animated artwork created by New York illustrator Rebecca Mock. Apparently the animated gif back to stay, gradually more and more people are exploring this old format and customers asking for shouting. Several of these illustrations were created for the New York Times or The Warlus magazine.
