The Thief - Megan Whalen Turner Oh Eugenides, what a conniving little bastard you are...

The narrator of the story is Gen, a thief from the prison of Sounis that has a task to steal something of high importance in order to gain his freedom. He describes his journey in great detail, with a sharp eye but at the same time holds back many information. He tries to judge everything objectively without reviling to much about himself.

There is a huge twist at the end, but if you pay close attention to the things that are said, or those unsaid, it is easy to figure it out.

Everybody says that this is just an introductory book and that the ones to follow are amazing. Well I don't now about that, but I'm looking forward to reading more about Eugenide's adventures.
