The Lies of Locke Lamora

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Scott Lynch

Narrated By: Michael Page

Publisher: Tantor Media

Date: May 2009

Duration: 22 hours 0 minutes

Summary:

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. Under his tutelage, Locke grows to lead the Bastards, delightedly pulling off one outrageous confidence game after another. Soon he is infamous as the Thorn of Camorr, and no wealthy noble is safe from his sting.

Passing themselves off as petty thieves, the brilliant Locke and his tightly knit band of light-fingered brothers have fooled even the criminal underworld's most feared ruler, Capa Barsavi. But there is someone in the shadows more powerful-and more ambitious-than Locke has yet imagined.

Known as the Gray King, he is slowly killing Capa Barsavi's most trusted men-and using Locke as a pawn in his plot to take control of Camorr's underworld. With a bloody coup under way threatening to destroy everyone and everything that holds meaning in his mercenary life, Locke vows to beat the Gray King at his own brutal game-or die trying.

    An all around enjoyable read. I will definitely continue with this series.

    Amazing first book. Just finished Red Seas Under Red Skies (the second in the series) and I was right to continue this series. The quality of this book isn't a fluke or a situation where the author comes out strong and then dwindles. Page was a little hard to get used to for the first two hours but after I got used to his accent and the writing style of Lynch they became a powerhouse combo.

    I really thought this audio book was fantastic. I wanted a "fantasy-type" book with a good narration and I needed it for a long drive. There is only a small fantasy element to the story, but it is enough to be interesting but not too much, so as to disillusion some readers. The author is great...and the reader was amazing. I didn't finish the book by the time I got home and found myself walking around my house with the phone to my ear listening! Highly recommend it. You will not be disappointed.

  • Chuck Walters

    Fantastic! Great writing! Great voice acting! So many twists and turns. I burned through this 25 hour book in 4 days lol.

  • Veronica Lopez

    Absolutely loved this book! At the beginning of the reading (while enjoyable) I thought it was another predictable humorous, fantasy, young adult novel, like Artemis Fowl. I feel dumb for having ever thought that because I was so incredibly wrong, and thank goodness! This book was more along the lines of Game of Thrones meets Assassins Creed meets Ocean's Eleven. You get violence, saucy humor, swearing, and whole lotta charm. Without giving away too much, there are some insane plot twists and Scott Lynch definitely does a clever job of keeping the reader on their toes. He also creates some wonderfully dynamic characters who's fates you genuinely care about. Let's just say you'll get attached and there are some stressful chapters in this book... As for the audio itself, I thoroughly enjoyed narrator, Michael Page. I bought the audio for my long commute to work, but I also own the book for when I have down time. I loved Page's narration so much that I ended up reading along to it. I felt like I was listening to a movie and preferred it to my own internal narration. I just finished downloading the next book in the series, which is also narrated by Page, and I'm looking forward to it. I would absolutely recommend this audio book to others.
