Hey Wats up all. This was the best book ever. Well not quite HP but it was awsome anyone giving under a 5 must not have finished this book.

Unquestionable best book ever! Not read it yet go!

The Thief Lord is by far one of the best books I’ve ever read. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys fiction books that you absolutely can’t put down. It is a great book of fantasy with a twist of sorrow and humor. The Thief Lord is one book that no one will not finish in less than a week.
Those who read the thief lord will too be trapped into the splendid fantasy of runaway children.

I am 13. I enjoyed reading this book. It is the best i've read since the Harry Potter series. though there is more Harry potter books i still enjoyed this. Im debating on which is better. I really enjoyed this book. It gave me a feeling on how it feels to be in venice, let alone being a low-life thief there. I recommend this book to all ages.
