I've read books than I remember From the classy literature books the classics to the crummy excuses of children's novels thrown into the public libraries to con young readers into believing that they possess uality my reading has been deep and varied Yet there are some novels I read as a child that impacted me enough to cause me to read them over again The Thief Lord is one of those booksWhat is The Thief Lord It is a fantasy tale and an adventure story combined and set in modern Venice The story follows two brothers who have run away to Venice and end up in the company of a group of juvenile thieves living in an abandoned cinema At least they appear to be thieves to begin with As one reads on one realises that perhaps these thieves are not uite the rogues they would have you believe Which all leads into the job they are asked to do with their leader the masked Thief Lord at their head They are asked to recover a magical artefact for a particular rich individual with no proper knowledge of what this artefact could do The assignment and the suabbles within the group added to the hidden secret of the Thief Lord lead to a fascinating conclusionThis book as I reflect is essentially about the idea of empowerment as linked to age The children within this book feel entrapped by the very fact that they are minors within society In order to gain power the two brothers run away and the group of thieves hide out in the abandoned cinema away from the confines of the law Hence the book proposes that children are far capable than society seems to realise and that at times laws designed to protect appear to entangleThis is one of those children's novels I would recommend for future generations as a fun and interesting fairytale type of novel Would I go back and re read it Probably not at this stage as I would not want to ruin the childhood magic of this novel

review Herr der Diebe Ò eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ [PDF / Epub] ☃ Herr der Diebe ✑ Cornelia Funke – Prosper and Bo are orphans on the run from their cruel aunt and uncle The brothers decide to hide out in Venice where they meet a mysterious thirteen year old who calls himself the Thief Lord Brillian ProsperRust into circumstances that will lead them to a fantastic spellbinding conclusionWinner of the Zurich Children's Book Award and the Children's Book Award from the Vienna House of Literature From the Cassette edition. Set in contemporary Venice around the time of both answering machines and cell phones this is not exactly what I expected which was a historical fantasy with lighthearted adventurous thieving in it What I got was a realistic tale of runaways and orphans trying to make it in a contemporary city Still bonus points for VeniceThere was a little bit of thieving but it was desperate the group of kids scraping by while living in an abandoned movie theater It was sad but heartwarming as well because of the friendships that they found It honestly took me a while to warm up to it until the second half when the focus shifted away from their sparse lives and into of an adventure what I'd been expecting in the first placeThere's a little bit of magic to it towards the end enough to shake things up There's payback that doesn't end up being malicious and wishes coming true that end up not being uite what was hoped for That made a bittersweet ending for some of the characters and an arguably happy one for others whether they deserved it or not I like how it wasn't all black and whiteOne drawback for me is that it was told in a very juvenile tone it's definitely for middle grade readers That and some of the word choices in the translation didn't fit and were distracting for example darn it was used a lot I'd probably give it 2 stars given how much I don't usually enjoy contemporary realistic stories But it was good for its target age group and I probably would have loved it when I was younger so I'm bumping it up a star
