Review this Book

It Takes a Thief

by

A mutual revelation, burglary and murder, nature and unconditional love

 

Ralph, a painter of nature and illusions, has a clear enough glimpse of a thief who wakes him to fall in love with her as he recognises her innate independence. After a strenuous search he finds her but she assaults him viciously the instant they meet. Discovering that she has killed a man during a burglary he leaves her with no choice but to listen to his arguments about how they were fated to meet, and to prove his integrity he becomes her accomplice, and she realises that his absolute commitment makes her reciprocate his feelings spontaneously. 

As a Post Post-Modernist novel, grounded in the felt reality of experience, it explores unconditional love, art as self-insight and the wonder of nature - to suggest consciousness as the origin of existence; but ‘It Takes a Thief’ also outlines the necessity of empathy and the struggle for survival within sustainable means in a consumer society intent on self-destruction.

It Takes a Thief

5 stars. Enjoyable, absorbing, challenging

This is a really interesting book, challenging our preconceptions about life and the human world. There is a deep morality to both the main characters, not of the conventional sort, but concerning how to survive in a world that has given itself over to mendacity, hypocrisy and false values on a colossal scale. I´m sure there is no other novel quite like it, and if you want to read something challenging, unusual and yet a page-turner here it is.

Enjoyable, astonishing, challenging.
