    This is a short review for one of my favourite childhood books.This is one of the rare books which my WHOLE FAMILY has read Literally Even my little brother, who detests books Just to put the amazingness of this book into perspective, my family consists of eight people My older brother was the first to read this book, and once he had gotten over the shock of its awesomeness, he forced recommended me to read it as well Which I did, finally And I loved it as well Which led me to force rec This is a short review for one of my favourite childhood books.This is one of the rare books which my WHOLE FAMILY has read Literally Even my little brother, who detests books Just to put the amazingness of this book into perspective, my family consists of eight people My older brother was the first to read this book, and once he had gotten over the shock of its awesomeness, he forced recommended me to read it as well Which I did, finally And I loved it as well Which led me to force recommend the book to my other brother.and so forth Needless to say, all of us completely ADORED this story.Which means that out of a 100%, 100% loved this book I must add that I ve read this book twice, both in my fifteenth year of life Which is two years ago I dont have a copy, and have never stumbled upon it again in any library or bookshop But I still remember all of the twists and major plot points So I should be fine with this review Hopefully.Now, onto the story Thief is not fantasy, per se, but has elements of the supernatural, if you will The opening chapters are a reflection of true life, but then, as the story progresses, we see our protagonist travelling into the future I hope that s not a spoiler Things really get interesting from there REALLY.The best part of this story is not the writing, which is good, but not spectacular It is the actual PLOT I mean, wow Seriously Malorie Blackman is amazing at plot and twists Some of the twists I could see coming, but others I couldnt I loved the fast pace and adrenaline of the story I lvoed all of the characters I loved the epilogue I LOVED THE MAIN CHARACTER S LITTLE BROTHER He was pretty fantastic, you gotta admit.I enjoyed the epilogue, and felt it wrapped up the story sufficiently The only thing I didnt much like is the LENGTH I think that Blackman could have fleshed some scenes out much further, and even split the book into two parts It definitely had the potential.Overall, fabulous book It was high on plot, and not low on anything So definitely a book of value

    It s sad that I forgot this book existed until Tinie Tempah and his rap skillz reminded me of the wonderful Malorie Blackman because I remember absolutely loving it when I read it in primary school think it was about Year Five.It was so long ago that I read it and I can t remember the details to write a full review I was about ten, give me a break but I remember the world that Blackman created terrified the crap out of me I hope one day I ll go back and read it along with Noughts Crosses It s sad that I forgot this book existed until Tinie Tempah and his rap skillz reminded me of the wonderful Malorie Blackman because I remember absolutely loving it when I read it in primary school think it was about Year Five.It was so long ago that I read it and I can t remember the details to write a full review I was about ten, give me a break but I remember the world that Blackman created terrified the crap out of me I hope one day I ll go back and read it along with Noughts Crosses.Her books are so intelligent and even though they are written for readers who areon the Young side of Young Adults , they are still rich with well thought out characters and don t shy away from gritty and uncomfortable subject matters I remember the controversy that Pig Heart Boy caused when it was adapted for the BBC I feel like I have to say something here, no offense Suzanne Collins, you know I love you but Malorie Blackman is the reigning queen of dystopian fiction and she will be for a long long time

    This book was quite an easy read and I didn t enjoy it as much as the author s other books, I would recommend it for a year 6 student I felt the storyline was very good and much different to Malorie Blackman s other books It s got an action and futuristic storyline involving changing the future and taking action which is something I wouldn t usually go for, but it was delivered quite well.

    This book was quite short and a very easy read The storyline was a little bit weird and although it was really straightforward I just found it a bit strange I would say this book issuited for a younger person, yr 6 maybe I really liked a couple if this authors books but the rest I haven t really been a fan of Overall I wouldn t recommend.

    I chose this book as a step out of my comfort zone I rarely read any sci fi related books but I was pleasantly suprised Thief centres around a character named Lydia who is labelled as a thief by a bully at her school Lydia tries to escape the bullying and retreats to the moors near her home Whilst walking through the moors Lydia is transported to the future and is met with a much changed, cruel world ruled by a familiar tyrant I don t want to give anything away, so I ll stop there Malo I chose this book as a step out of my comfort zone I rarely read any sci fi related books but I was pleasantly suprised Thief centres around a character named Lydia who is labelled as a thief by a bully at her school Lydia tries to escape the bullying and retreats to the moors near her home Whilst walking through the moors Lydia is transported to the future and is met with a much changed, cruel world ruled by a familiar tyrant I don t want to give anything away, so I ll stop there Malorie Blackman makes this a thrilling and shocking read which is utterly gripping Her portrayal of the stress that Lydia experiences is so well observed and, as such, would be brilliant to read alongside learning how to effectively write about emotional energy Further, despite being a fast paced sci fi read, this story still retains important links to the themes of bullying, innocence and the destructiveness of hatred
