City of Thieves Review (6/10)

City of Thieves

For a book lacking any real depth in terms of what can be seen through the blind eye, City of Thieves was loaded with items, metaphors, and ideas that opened up a new world of literature in and of itself if one is willing to look far enough.

City of Thieves

Two boys, the thought of whom represents what can be thought of as all of Russia during the time of war, chasing after the eggs or victory. These proverbial eggs, which were proven to be as much of a factor in the book as reality as well as in theory, could not be found among the cannibals or the old man (nor his son) like victory could not be found among your own people. The eggs had to be taken from the enemy, like victory for Russia in the end.

Besides the idea of the eggs, as well as many other ideas represented in the book, City of Thieves was an easy read that I was able to accomplish over the short span of a couple of days (tough to believe with my attention span). The book, however, would have ranked much higher had it not submitted to the same predictability that many modern forms of literature have sunken to. All of these factors lead to my appropriate rating of (6/10) for City of Thieves.
