renGoodreads rating: 1 out of 5 stars

I didn’t care for The Good Thief by Hannah Tinti.  I made it to page 50 where they steal the horse, and that was enough for me.  I didn’t like any of the characters.  It’s obvious that the long-lost brother who claims Ren from the orphanage is a liar and a con artist.  I also didn’t care much for Ren.  There was a lot of potential there, but it didn’t pan out.  I was reading this book for a book club through my public library and got my copy from the library. I’m glad I didn’t spend any money on it!

    I find that If I don’t like a character I have a very difficult time liking the book but I usually read beyond page 50. Sometimes the story becomes interesting a hundred pages in. Haven’t read this book so I can’t comment.

      The book was only a few hundred pages long. It just wasn’t worth wasting my time on.
