The Thief Lord
I loved the thief lord, I couldn't wait to finish it and when I did I didn't want it to end. I could picture almost every detail of the book and i could picture it being a movie and soon after I finished the book I had found out that it was made into a movie. I can't wait to rent it. I hope to read some more of your books soon, and I hope that I'll enjoy them more as I did with the Thief lord.

Awesome!
I think that this is a book that everyone should read during their life. This book shows that growing up is a very important in life. It also shows lying to people can get you into a mess especially if you are lying to friends. READ IT!!
eeeeeee

marvelous
This book was excellent. A great happy ending, plotline, etc. But in some ways I agree with Lisa. There are little white lies that were ignored ( Prosper's and Bo's problem with the Hartliebs). It seems too good to be true to be placed aside like that. But I guess that sort of resolution aids the books in the happy ending.

Thief Lord: spectacular
This book was excellent. I read it over 5 times and I still find it as interesting as the first time I read it. I read Cornelia Funke's other books but I can't say that her book Inkheart was good. I wouldn't recommend it.
As many other people mentioned the ending for Thief Lord could've had a better ending. I wished Scipio didn't go on the merry-go-round and it Cornelia Funke could've emphasized on Prosper a bit more. But overall it was a beautiful book. It made magic and fairy tales well, seem possible

Thief Lord and Cornelia Funke
Was a completely enchanting story- however I did not think it would go the direction it went in. That was good but I can see why a person would be disappointed in the ending...I thought that there should have been more on Prosper, I feel that I never really got to know him. Loved the characters Victor and Ida. They were interesting and charming and I think they enlightened the story. Cornelia Funke is a fabulous author- Inkheart and Inkspell are her best works. Did not enjoy Dragon Rider too much - would not recommend that. I would like to see a sequel to Thief Lord and a brand new series. I give Thief Lord a five out of five.Good book!

P.S. Did u know that the book was originally written in German? I recently found that out. You might have known already though.
