The Good Thief by Hannah Tinti

Good Thief by Hannah TintiTitle:  The Good Thief

Author:  Hannah Tinti

Call #:  TIN

This is a refreshingly traditional, historical adventure. It is fast paced, the hero is resourceful and lucky (maybe unbelievable so, but go with it) and it has a happy ending. Tinti uses many of Dickens’ own tricks and themes to propel her story along, including a cast of eccentric secondary characters such as a dwarf who lives on the roof, a murderous giant and a hard-of-hearing landlady. The novel is appropriately funny, heart-warming, melodramatic and bittersweet all in the right places.
