Proving that Bernie is for younger readers too, THE BURGLAR WHO COUNTED THE SPOONS is on YA Yeah Yeah’s list of Best Adult Books!
The return of Lawrence Block’s wonderful burglar, Bernie Rhodenbarr, 9 years after the tenth novel in the series, was my most-anticipated book release for an awfully long time. It is an absolute pleasure to report that the character has lost none of his charm, Block’s writing is as superb as ever, and the plot is as ingenious as in any of the previous 10. I read this in one sitting within 24 hours of it being released – and that was on Christmas Day!
There’s also a terrific review on the site:
A few years ago, I wasn’t expecting to ever read another Rhodenbarr book – at least not for the first time – but I really hope that this won’t be the final time that he utters that classic line of his. Hugely recommended.
