    Story
    (93)

    The Thief is a seasoned pickpocket. Anonymous in his tailored suit, he weaves in and out of Tokyo crowds, stealing wallets from strangers so smoothly that sometimes he doesn't even remember the snatch. Most people are just a blur to him; nameless faces from whom he chooses his victims. He has no family, no friends, no connections.... But he does have a past, which finally catches up with him when Ishikawa, his first partner, reappears in his life and offers him a job he can't refuse.

    Kyle says: "Well, it is short."
    "I would say it's not a bad book, just not good"

    Story
    Would you try another book from Fuminori Nakamura and Satoko Izumo (translator) and/or Charlie Thurston?

    Not sure, would need to be in the mood. I think something got missed in the translation.


    Would you recommend The Thief to your friends? Why or why not?

    No


    What three words best describe Charlie Thurston’s voice?

    common, indistinct and plain


    Could you see The Thief being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Could be a better moving than book / audiobook
