Although I am a senior in high school, this book was amazing! Because the protagonists are poor, nearly-homeless orphans the reader can percieve life through different eyes. What an entertaining book! Read ReAd READ!

The Thief Lord

I really am not the type of person to read but once i started reading The theif Lord i couldn't stop. The Thief Lord is one of my favorite books in the world. I read this book witha group of people and I really liked the book and so did my group. Where all in 6th grade and there was 4 of us and we where all different too. Well just do everyone knows everyone should read the book one time in there life.

I'm 13 years old and i read this book. I'm the kind of person who loves to read fantasy books like this. This was one of the first i read of her story's. It made me want to go to Venice and see all that stuff and see the islands.I'm trying to remember what some of it was about its been a month or so since i read it and i also read Inkheart and lots other story's. well got to go bye bye

This book was very well-written and had a very original plot. It was absolutely wonderful. I love Cornelia Funk and would also recommend Inkheart. I am 13 years old.
