Book Fortythree: The Good Thief

The Good Thief, Hannah Tinti

A good--no, a great--classic adventure. Filled with preposterous, wonderful characters, pleasing action, and vividly described places. I found myself becoming highly attached to all the people, even though in my imagination they became silly caricatures. The Mousetrap girls were Maurice Sendak's depiction of the ugly Clara doll from the Nutcracker, Tom was played by Zack Galifianakis, and Dolly looked liked Zippy in my mind--should they make this into a movie, I believe I have the beginnings of an outstanding cast. And some of the things that happened made me laugh out loud at the sheer outlandishness of it all, yet I bought it all because I just couldn't help myself, it was so good. Plus, there were some lovely themes surrounding family and worth, so it wasn't all silliness. Please read this book.
