My Video Review youtu 7ftK1cYyTwo
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 quality 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 books.What is The Thief Lord It is a fantasy tale and an adventure story combined and set in modern Venice The s [...]
SPOILER ALERTI hate hate hate it when a book introduces magic 3 4ths of the way through I like fantasy, thats not the problem But the ordinary people are supposed to discover the magic at the beginning of the book You know, the children run through a mysterious old house in the country, hide in a wardrobe, and bam they re in Narnia Perfect Don t try and tell me a realistic story and then suddenly change solve everything with magic that the characters just accept and move on I was adoring this bo [...]
THIS IS ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVOURITE BOOKS I love the characters, the world, the story Scipio was like one of my first book crushes lmao Seriously, this book is so exciting and fun and has such a great cast of characters who all have such genuine, important friendships and it s magical and beautiful could not recommend it highly enough It s like Six of Crows except they live in a movie theatre and they are all like 12KINDA wanna reread it again now its just the BEST
Herr der Diebe The Thief Lord, Cornelia FunkeThe Thief Lord is a children s novel written by Cornelia Funke It was published in Germany in 2000 and translated into English by Oliver Latsch in 2002 for The Chicken House, a division of publishing company It was also adapted into a film in 2006.The Thief Lord follows the story of brothers, Prosper and Boniface Bo , who run away to Venice, Italy They are taken in by a group of street children who live in an abandoned movie theater the Stella, and ar [...]
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 Venice There 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 [...]
It s a great fantasy Let s run away to Venice, and hide out in an old movie theater We can dye our hair blonde, so no one will ever find us In a way, this is a European version of From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs Basil E Frankweiler, with siblings running away to a place stuffed with antiquities, and getting mixed up in an art mystery I guess Victor the detective must have the Mrs Frankweiler role.I didn t expect the touch of fantasy at the end I d love to read a sequel to find out what happened t [...]
Book of the Year Awards Really Is it unsympathetic of me to think that this book is childish How reductive should authors of children s lit be I ve been working with a young student this summer, and The Thief Lord, by Cornelia Funke, is a big favorite on the sixth grade circuit This particular boy had chosen it for summer reading, and so I picked up a copy for myself.Enh.Billed as a fantastical journey through the magical underworld of Venice, Italy , The Thief Lord follows a pair of orphaned bo [...]
This book did not work well to me, Cornelia Funke gave me another headache after reading her Inkheart series which I thought will be one of my favorites since the movie was great I did like the movie very much and I dug a hole 6 feet under for the whole series not be seen by my eyes again Well, I think I broke one of the important rules of reading and watching book tie in stuff I did watch the movie before the book so that made things worst but I was hoping not.The last time I remember reading C [...]
Venice would be one of the places I d visit before I die.The story of The Thief Lord weaved wonderfully with the gorgeous city of Venice.If this story had been in a different location it might not have been as appealing.I love it when a book takes me to places I have never been before.I rarely travel so that factor is very important to me.This book did just that.It took me straight to Venice.Not only did it take me to Venice, I felt like I was right in the midst of the story.Like I was one of th [...]
This was a cute read Kind of a mix between Peter Pan Robin Hood Oliver Twist I thought the magical aspect would run heavier in the story than it did I enjoyed running around on the streets of Venice with these kids, seeing it through their eyes.
Peter Pan meets Six of Crows a younger version meets The Boxcar Children in modern day Venice with a slight twist of fantasy near the end, in this gripping adventure tale of two brothers and their unexpected friends especially a mysterious boy named Scipio I adored how Prosper looked after Bo it made me happy Also, pet tortoises Poor Victor XD Solid 4 stars throughout, might have made it to 5 stars if it had ended how I wanted As it is, it s being kept from a disappointed 2 stars currently by re [...]
Absolute 5 Sterne Eine unglaublich sch ne Geschichte, mit viel Emotionen Witz und voll mit Liebe Ich habe es als H rbuch geh rt es wurde so sch n erz hlt und die Musik zwischen den Kapiteln hat das ganze noch wirklicher erscheinen lassen auf Cornelia Funke ist einfach immer Verlass
I kept fluctuating between 3 and four stars Ultimately I d probably opt for 3 and 1 2, but since that s not an option, I ll go with four because I think it s of a personal taste thing over the quality of the book.I m a huge fan of Inkheart so had high hopes for this novel I quickly realized the two have very different styles, and rightfully so, as this book is at least I assume geared for a younger audience.The cast of characters is delightful, each with their own stories and personalities, and [...]
This book is so good, what a wonderful mix of reality and fantasy I enjoyed it a lot, even though adventure is not my favourite genre My favourite character is Scipio, let s applaud him for how much he has changed
still such a brilliant book reading as an adult.I love the imagination and beauty of this bookAH SO GOOD.I hope Cornelia continues writing beautiful stories like this.
What a wonderful story My favorite character, aside from the kids, is Venice herself Cornelia Funke has weaved her story so brilliantly in a gorgeous setting, describing the city as if it had its own personality I think the story wouldn t be as awesome if it were set somewhere else The mystery that is Venice, the beauty that is Venice it took my breath away than once I also adore the simple illustrations that began each chapter, allowing us a glimpse of the wonderful world these kids live in.Ah [...]

I was told to start with this book, but began with Inkheart instead Inkheart is entirely of a different variety, totally magical, but this one is destined to be the classic Set in the streets of Venice, this book has it all Italian culture, street savvy kids, the Robin Hood like notion of stealing from the rich to give to the poor, all the while echoing a sort of Les Miserables like Griviche type thing.Everybody loves a gang of orphans These orphans live in a run down movie theater and rule the [...]
I read The Thief Lord two years back when I was in Venice for skiing holiday The book is excellent, and combined with the right surroundings I was smitten Venice in the winter is misty and dreamy, and when we walked around the city, I could almost see the Thief Lord running around with his friends, cunningly planning their theft, getting and mixed up in the plots of grown ups around them Funke s storytelling is wonderful, her characters believable, and, for a children s book, The Thief Lord is [...]
Bagian paling kusuka dalam kisah Pangeran Pencuri adalah setting tempat yang dideskripsikan dengan sangat baik Penggambaran sungai yang dipenuhi gondola, jalanan selayak labirin, dan patung bangunan museum di Venesia, menjadi latar yang sangat mendukung petualangan Prosper Bo bersama Pangeran Pencuri dan kawan kawan Proper Bo kabur dari Bibi mereka yang sengaja ingin memisahkan kakak beradik ini setelah kematian ibunya Venesia, kota ajaib yang selalu didongengkan sang ibu menjadi tujuan mereka, [...]
I loved this book as a kid.
This book helped me to escape from myself.2016 and 2017 were tough years for me I was always generally healthy, which didn t serve me well when my body and mind seemed to break apart gradually but ever so steadily I didn t know how to take care of myself And when I finally managed to learn, I became obsessed It became a different kind of unhealthy I needed to let my mind run far elsewhere, but fear kept drawing me back until I picked up The Thief Lord and Harry Potter again 3 This book follows t [...]

I liked it, but somehow I expected of it More excitment, secrets, revealing of the same secretsI d love to read of Cornlia Funke s books, but I know my expectations are and will remain very high.

I am just going to cut to the chase This novel is EXACTLY like the movie I mean the movie is EXACTLY like the book I watched the movie first which got me to read the book as well Thinking that the book was going to be a little different than the movie like all novels are , but to my dismay, there were no differences at all I liked the fact how the writers in Comet Film Productions created this movie to be spot on with the book I literally skimmed whole pages and chapters because the movie gave i [...]
