Over the next few weeks I’m going to be taking part in an online read-along of The Lies of Locke Lamora. It’s hosted by The Little Red Reviewer, Dark Cargo, SF Signal and My Awful Reviews. The plan is that we post our thoughts on a section of the book each Saturday, and there can be discussion in the comments.
I was given The Lies of Locke Lamora for Christmas–it was part of a set of Gollancz 50th Anniversary editions in plain bright yellow covers–so this read-along is the kick up the backside I needed to get it off my to-read pile and into my brain. I normally read science fiction rather than fantasy but I’ve heard some good things about Locke Lamora, and I’m drawn to con man characters.
I’ve started reading Locke Lamora, and…well, I may have already finished the section I’m meant to read for this weekend. So far it’s very easy to read and great fun. More detailed thoughts to follow this Saturday.
