Good for the 10 to 12 year olds
Interesting characters and dialogue. It sounds like a Lemony Snicket book when it begins. Highly talented orphans, a brother and sister, who have been trust upon an obscure relative who dosen't want them. The plot was just plan silly.
A really good book!
My 10 year old son absolutely loved this book. It flowed well and had just enough adventure in it to keep him interested, but not give him nightmares. He says that he 'hopes there will be a Talent Thief 2'!
I've not heard the audio book but have read the book and it's absolutely amazing. I read it to my godson who completely loved it and have since passed the message on to get similar feed back from friends with children. It's such an original story, written with a style that is completely individual to this writer (I've subsequently read his next two books) ... despite it's whistlestop adventure, it has a sort of grace about the way it's written. Appeals to boys or girls - highly highly recommend.
