really liked it
bookshelves: league-of-extraordinary-gentlemen, 19th-century
Read in July, 2008

Had distinct preconceptions of what this was going to be like and they were not good. I just could not see how the concept of the gentleman thief could over many surprises or excitement but i was totally wrong. The amount of variety through this book is really good and it never feels dull or repetitive and Raffles doesn't come across as clever or flawless as one might expect. Ending comes rather suddenly and doesn't seem to well conceived but apart from that highly recommended.
