    Prosper and Bo are orphans on the run from their cruel aunt and uncle. The brothers decide to hide out in Venice, where they meet a mysterious thirteen-year-old boy who calls himself the "Thief Lord." Brilliant and charismatic, the Thief Lord leads a ring of street children who dabble in petty crimes. Prosper and Bo delight in being part of this colorful new family. But the Thief Lord has secrets of his own.

    Overall

    At first I thought this book was a little too much like others about thieving street children, but Cornelia Funke is now one of my favorite writers and her characters are fabulous, alive and fun. Lots of twists and turns - I'm always amazed at her ability to think up so many adventurous plot twists that all come together in the end. Really fun listen. If you haven't listed to Inkheart & Inkspell, though, those are must listens for those of us who love these types of books! And if you like these books and haven't yet listened to "His Dark Materials" (starts with the Golden Compass), by all means do. Not the same author, but great fantasy adventures, too.

    Overall

    I loved this book, even in moments when the narrator's voice distracted me a bit. The main character's voice is honest, real and hilarious at times, the way he sees the world. Excellent writing, a great story looking forward and looking back. Recommended for teenagers (and anyone interested in the topic) of all ages. A skillful telling of a delicate, important subject.
