March read-along: The Lies of Locke Lamora

Posted on: February 16, 2012


You haven’t read Scott Lynch’s The Lies of Locke Lamora??  the stunning debut that came out of nowhere to turn to fantasy inside out?

it’s okay, I have the cure.  😉

You can join us (and by “us”, I mean these folks: Dark Cargo, My Awful Reviews, @ohthatashley blogging at SF Signal, Dark Cargo Explorer and yours truly) on our Lies of Locke Lamora read along this March!  followed by a read along for Red Seas Under Red Skies in April . . .  all leading up to the third book in the Gentleman Bastard series, The Republic of Thieves, due to hit bookstore shelves later this year.

This is truly going to be epic.  If you are a fan of dark fantasy, of adventure, of stories with more imagination and twists and turns than you can count, The Lies of Locke Lamora (review) and Red Seas Under Red Skies (review) are more than worth your time and money.

At the end of February I’ll post more details on chapter breaks and such.  I expect we’ll be doing 120-150 pages per week with discussions hitting each weekend.

I wish I could join, but I have too much going on. Dang!


I… um… am posting today my review of Lies of Locke Lamora (read a month back) with some trepidation. Because while I went in with high hopes, I only thought it was okay. It just didn’t click for me.

So, no read along for me this time. 😉


😦 I’m sorry it didn’t work out for you, it’s not a book that everyone is going to like. I’ve tried to get my other half to read it, and he gets like 50 pages in and gives up. not your thing, not his thing, no worries.


Greatly looking forward to this, there is a never a bad excuse to read these books.


I decided to read The Name of the Wind actually. I may be late getting into the read-a-long. but we shall see. You were right about the reading of the book it flows pretty easily.


Yay, I’m geeked you picked up Name of the Wind. for a fat book, it reads surprisingly fast. You’re gonna have a blast with this read-along, I just know it! 🙂

some of the books reviewed here were free ARCs supplied by publishers/authors/other groups. Some of the books here I got from the library. the rest I *gasp!* actually paid for. I'll do my best to let you know what's what.
