(no subject)

Finished reading The Lies of Locke Lamora
by Scott Lynch this weekend.

Cor, that's a cracking tale. One of the guys at work loaned it to me last week, saying that he thought I'd like it. Thought I'd read the first chapter to see how I'd get on, and before I knew it I was totally hooked.

Of course, it helps that I like a good heist story, and this is a wonderfully twisty-turny one, set in a thoroughly thought-out and realised world, dripping with atmosphere.

Utterly brilliant. Can't wait to read the sequel now.
