review Museum of Thieves Ö eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Welcome to the tyrannical city of Jewel where impatience is a sin and boldness is a crimeGoldie Roth has lived in Jewel all her life Like every child in the city she wears a silver guardchain and is forced to obey the dreaded Blessed Guardians She has never done anything by herself anFortunately Goldie has a talent for thievingWhich is just as well because the leader of the Blessed Guardians has his own plans for the museum plans that threaten the lives of everyone Goldie loves And it will take a daring thief to stop him Museum of Thieves is a thrilling tale of destiny and danger and of a courageous girl who has never been allowed to grow up until now. SOOOOO GOOD I know I could probably come up with a savvy hook than that butTHIS BOOK IS SOOOOO GOOD Lian Tanner's Museum of Thieves blew me away It is scary and dark and thrilling and inspiring and clever But beyond being thoroughly entertaining Museum of Thieves raises some very thought provoking uestions It never ceases to amaze me how authors create elaborate fantasy worlds that on the surface seem to have nothing in common with ours but soon are revealed to examine deep truths about the cultures and societies of our own humdrum world Museum of Thieves is just such a bookThe story begins with one of the best most tension filled opening scenes I have read in a long time We are introduced to the city of Jewel Ages ago this land used to be filled with dangers flood kidnapping murder famine plague etc and it made the people fearful A law was declared that all children under the age of 16 must be safely chained to an adult at all times At home children are connected to their parents by a guardchain and out in the world they are connected to Guardians who are basically like teachersnanniesbody guards But the times have changed and Jewel's leader the Grand Protector has become concerned about the power of the Guardians and their leader the Blessed Guardian The Grand Protector much to the Blessed Guardian's dismay has decided to lower the age of separation from 16 to 12 The book begins on this controversial Separation Day and Goldie our bold and rebellious 12 year old protagonist is going to be the first one to have her chain removed But in one of the best introductions of a plot's conflict that I have read in a long time suddenly the Separation Ceremony is cancelled due to a mysterious explosion in the city Panicked at the thought of having the freedom she longs for snatched away from her at the last moment Goldie runs away and so her adventure begins She discovers the mysterious museum of the book's title and uickly learns that there is much danger left in Jewel than anyone realizesThis book is a genuine page turner As the end of each chapter drew near I would promise myself that I would set the book aside and get some sleep but when I got to the last line I just couldn't bring myself to close the book I had to keep going Goldie is very likable extremely bold and defiant but also frightened at times and unsure of herself And she is surrounded by an entertaining posse of strange characters The villains of the book are despicable and the moments of danger which are many feel extremely real and urgentBut beyond being entertaining there is a lot we can learn from Museum of Thieves as it reveals truths about our own often paranoid culture The panicky control obsessed people of Jewel made me think of the ways we try to escape the necessary dangers of living life I found myself thinking of security measures in airports and even in schools etc and people's willingness to trade their privacy even dignity to feel a little safer Museum of Thieves shows that risk and danger are not something we can simply get rid of They exist and are a part of life and when you try to pretend they aren't it only backfires often in ways that are even dangerous than you first feared

I suppose every parent has sometimes wished they could wrap their little ones in bubble wrap so they will never get hurt physically or emotionally But what kind of people would we be if we had never been allowed to stand on our own Slender trees dense in a forest develop shallow roots and can easily be blown over in a high wind But the oak standing alone in a meadow bearing rain and winds year after year develops deep roots and stands strong Lian Tanner envisions a world in which children are sheltered until they are 16 years old not only sheltered but literally chained to their parents so they cannot even run around In the City of Jewel all the children are safe All dogs hawks and other dangerous animals have been eliminated because they might hurt the children Loose nails broken glass and wood splinters are forbidden by law War disease and dangerous winds have been locked up To make sure that they don't get lost or injured the children are chained to their parents As the book opens we meet Goldie on the day of her Separation Ceremony eager for the Separation to be done When an explosion is heard in the distance the shocked Guardians decide the the world is not safe and all the Separations must be canceled Goldie can't bear to stay chained any longer so she slips her temporary Ceremony ties and runs away It is a frightening world for a child who has never had to make her own decisions Where should she run How can she even run when her un exercised legs have no experience Goldie finds surprising difficulty in slipping away uickly She knows that if the city's Guardians find her they will lock her up forever in a Care facility for rebellious children With the Guardians actively searching for her Goldie slips into the city's Museum for refuge There she is protected and befriended by all the museum keepers and by a boy named Toadspit who is also a runaway Goldie finds that the museum is filled with magic and also with all the things that have been hidden from her protected world Highly entertaining for grades 4 8

Museum of ThievesIs canceled Goldie who has always been both impatient and bold runs away risking not only her own life but also the lives of those she has left behind In the chaos that follows she is lured to the mysterious Museum of Dunt where she meets the boy Toadspit and discovers terrible secrets Only the cunning mind of a thief can understand the museum’s strange shifting rooms. This book caught my interest very uickly Opening as the story of the bold young girl who escapes the oppressive control of the Guardians Unfortunately the book started losing my interest just as uicklyIt seems to me that the author had a good idea The problem seems to have come in because she had a couple of good ideas that began clamoring to be the main idea of the bookAre we telling a story of the young girl and boy lest we forget Toadspit who want to rebel against the evil oppressive government that holds everyone under a spell of paralyzing fear A government that knows it has to control everyone and every thing from cradle to grave to remain in power Or is it a story about evil humans who have driven nature out and damaged it A novel about how nature has to be brought back Or to paraphrase an old TV commercial is it two two two plots in oneThe book is okay and I think younger readers who get caught up in Goldie's story may not be bothered so much by the confusion and the somewhat openly indoctrinative yes I suppose it may be a made up word but you get the meaningright parts of the book I wasn't taken with it that much and probably won't follow it up but I suppose I didn't really dislike it To uote a friend here Ala it's just a bitmeh
