really liked it

Another great fantasy. Love this book and the world Scott Lynch built.
The story revolves around talented rogue, thieves and conman called, Gentlmen Bastards. They are lead by a great actor, trickster and deceiver Locke Lamora. But don't mistake the story is all about stealing. Morality is also sprinkle throughout the book, I don't really want to read novels like this where characters lack honor but the main characters have redeeming positive qualities that will make you read. The villain too is a remarkable enemy.

On the technical note, the novel is thick with world building. I've got bored on the first few pages of the book and wanted to skip a lot of scenes. It started bland for me. But midway to the last page, oh boy, that's where the story picks up and interesting events start to happen.
