A true 'Odd Couple ' ! Cool story, great narriration. The tweaks to "historical facts" are certainly within the realm of believability. I normally stay within the fantasy genre, but glad I ventured out a tad. See? They even have me using their brand of slang... Very cool! Check these stories out, you won't be disappointed 'Old Chap!'

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.

Where does The Lies of Locke Lamora rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

At the very top! A world so consuming that one is actually sad to leave it for reality.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Locke, of course. He is a character with so many facets that he is real in your mind, and as such is an instant friend and companion.

What does Michael Page bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Inflection. Layers of personality to each character.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The true prince of thieves. The original rouge with a heart of gold.

Any additional comments?

Get ready for a whirlwind of a ride to a world full of intrigue that few will ever experience in reality or imagination.
