It’s been a while since I read this, and I’d forgotten how much of the beginning of the book is pure set up, for the characters, the plot, and the world. Generally speaking, do you prefer set up and world building done this way, or do you prefer to be thrown into the deep end with what’s happening?

i think this book strikes a nice balance, since even the backstory has a bit of action and then BAM, we are in the don salvara game. i’ve seen people complaining about the Typical Fantasy Capitalization and whatnot that comes with the set up, but none of that ever bothered me.

and i mean, when i opened the book the first time, i thought it was going to be about scotland so it really felt like i was thrown in the deep end anyway!

(today is the first lies of locke lamora read-along discussion day, so prepare yourself for many posts of this ilk throughout the day. and also go read the book, you godless heathens.)
