So Tricky.. this is what thief-ish book should be! I love reading the book with thief characters, but I have never read the book that have A LOT of clever robbering plans. The robberies are complicated and very-well planned. I really admire Sheldon of how he can think and create them.

من واقعاً بازم بعد شیشسال، دوسش دارم. وختی خوندمش که خیلی کوچیکتر از الآن بودم. کارهای اینجوری رو نمیپسندیدم و همچنانم نمیپسندم. ولی سیدنی شلدون سبک خودشو داره. نه سعی میکنه فاجر بنویسه، نه تکنیکی و نه عامّهپسند. از زندگی مینویسه. آدما. دوستیها. خیانتها. پول. لذّت. قدرت. شهوت. طرز نگاهش بهدنیا واقعاً جالب توجّه ـه. بهخصوص تو اینکتاب. اگر فردا بیاید.. ایناسم چقد با آدم بازی میکنه در تمام صحنههای داستان.. امّا خب، من مثل قدیما دیگه شیفتگی ندارم. خصوصاً که حرکات ژانگولری و غیرمنطقی هم توش کم نبود. ...more
Sheldon tried to create a plot consisting of a string of unrelated scams pulled by his heroine Tracy White, succeeding in all of them, certainly, this is very difficult to believe by a serious reader. The main character and heroine, Tracy White working for a man named Gunther, becomes a modern Robin Hood ripping off cardboard characters of unsavory reputations with no logical reason at all, just for the sake of doing. The so called story goes superbly fast and the scores of situati ...more

Went on a interesting journey with Tracy Whitney :D Girl, you're amazing. I loved those pages where cute-innocent Tracy transformed herself into sexy-daring criminal :D Survival of the fittest, I call it.
I found myself following her like a shadow in prison, went to places with her to avenge on Joe Ramono, Anthony Orsatti & others. Gunther, Conrad Morgan, Ernestine - You people were icing on the cake ^_^
