Read from November 05 to 11, 2013

This remains just a stupendously well-delivered piece of fiction. Magnificently delivered characters in a vibrantly detailed world, with a tight plot and ineluctably rising stakes. I was reading this time with a technical eye, and admiring the phenomenal pacing of the thing, but bottom line, this book is just such fun, such a gritty gleeful delight, that all of the genius of its delivery disappears behind one's grin of replete satisfaction.

Quotes Dee Liked

Scott Lynch
“Someday, Locke Lamora,” he said, “someday, you’re going to fuck up so magnificently, so ambitiously, so overwhelmingly that the sky will light up and the moons will spin and the gods themselves will shit comets with glee. And I just hope I’m still around to see it.”
“Oh please,” said Locke. “It’ll never happen.”
Scott Lynch, The Lies of Locke Lamora
