Book Review: Fuminori Nakamura, The Thief (2009)

Publishers Weekly says that The Thief’s antihero is “at once as believably efficient as Donald Westlake’s Parker and as disaffected as a Camus protagonist.” To which I will add, it’s the Parker that makes you want to keep reading, and the Camus that makes you want to stop. Grade: C

  1. This is an interesting read. I've just finished writing my review (The Thief by Fuminori Nakamura ) and found it a refreshing blend of philosophy and crime fiction.
