The Palace Thief – #20 of 52

The Palace Thief The Palace Thief by Ethan Canin

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
What a wonderful collection of 4 short stories! I read them all in one day. There is a similar thread through all the stories as they are all told through the eyes of someone living a highly routine/disciplined/doing what’s expected of you life while there is another character who they are observing who is living a much more care free existence and that contrast fascinates & confounds the main character. The settings and circumstances and ages of the two are different in each, but the explorations of those same themes 4 unique ways is very interesting and entertaining.

This was a very good book weekend! Lots of reading time and a book which I didn’t want to put down (which was a nice change after the previous one which was not as enticing). I am really looking forward to the end of TV season this month. Fewer reading distractions 🙂
