the thieves of manhattan

January 11, 2012

It was the only book that I managed to finish during the second half of 2011, but it was one of the best books that I have read in a long time. The beginning of the book is seemingly rather ordinary, but after not too long, the pace of the story increases, the plot thickens, and then takes unexpected turns that make you go, “whaaaa?!” Full of surprises, sarcasm, and literary references, this book is a must-read. Here are a few quotes:

“Let’s say you had an opportunity to get your work in front of more people than you ever thought you’d reach, a chance to get more money than you thought you could ever get, but you had to compromise everything you thought you believed in. Would you do it?”

“Writing a book can be a profoundly optimistic act; expecting someone to read, buy, and publish it is always a phenomenally presumptuous one.”

“The best lies are always intertwined with facts…”

“Maybe I’ll see you after the last page.”
