it's been a long time since I've love to book this much. There were so many different scenes and parts of the story that I loved in a lot of the time so is gripping to the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next. I love the details and description of the beautiful scenery of Alaska. I love that this novel was really long so it was really worth the money so to speak. I truly hope that many more people get the chance to read or listen to this book. You definitely won't regret it!

An orphan's life is harsh---and often short---in the island city of Camorr, built on the ruins of a mysterious alien race. But born with a quick wit and a gift for thieving, Locke Lamora has dodged both death and slavery, only to fall into the hands of an eyeless priest known as Chains---a man who is neither blind nor a priest. A con artist of extraordinary talent, Chains passes his skills on to his carefully selected "family" of orphans---a group known as the Gentlemen Bastards.

I loved the variations of different voices that the narrator used throughout the book. the story was good yet sometimes there was too much description given on some parts that made the story drag on more than it needed to. I enjoyed the last few chapters where the story was moving along and was very exciting. good book to get for your month long credit.

A year earlier, Seattle advertising executive Alan Christoffersen lost everything he held dear - his beloved wife was killed in a terrible accident; his partner stole his business from him; and the bank foreclosed on his home when he couldn’t pay the mortgage. With seemingly nothing left to live for, Alan set out to walk from Seattle to the farthest point on the map, Key West. And now, after walking more than two thousand miles on a journey filled with surprises, dangers, and revelations, he approaches his destination - and the most important decision of his life.

this was an awesome book! Why did it have to end so soon? I was really hoping to have triple the amount of story here. I hope that in some way somehow that there is another part of the story that could come out at some point. Awesome story though!

I am so sad that this book has ended. it feels like I no longer have my driving companion. I was so surprised with the end of the story. I thought I knew, but I really didn't! This is a great great book! I highly suggest it to anyone who does a lot of driving like I do for my job.
