  1. What a nice book full of adventures! I couldn’t put it down!

  2. The Good Thief was a novel which was hard to get through. Some sections were extremely boring – so much that I was tempted to skip a few pages – but then there were parts I just wanted to continue reading. It was a very fast paced book (so I reccomend it for readers like me, who can’t possibly sit still and read unless it’s really an engaging book), and a lot of morals were challenged. The whole idea of stealing wasn’t really a huge topic. However, the theme about Ren’s past and family was a huge aspect of the novel. Overall, it was very capturing and Hannah Tinti is an author that makes history come to life.

  3. The Good Thief is a serious story about an orphan named Ren. He knows nothing of his past – who his parents are, what has happened to them, or even who he is. When he is adopted by a man who claims to be his brother, Ren embarks on a self-searching journey. Even though the story started out a little slow and it was kind of predictable from the beginning, the twists and cliffhangers the author put in were very thrilling. One major problem I had with this novel were the minor but extremely gory details the author included, which literally made me lose my appetite on many occasions.
