I just finished reading the first book of The Gentleman Bastards by Scott Lynch. Since I had quite a stressful time in the last week and am ill atm, I just want to give you a really short update.
Words that describe "The Lies of Locke Lamora" best:
fantastic, cruel*, funny, nerve-wracking, captivating
You need to read it, to understand what I'm talking about :) It's one of my all-time favorites and it really deserves 5 stars!
When I get back my spare time, I'm going to write a much longer review about it.
*not the writing style or content - it was just horrible to read certain things (don't want to spoil anything)
