    One thought on “Tale of the Music-Thief”

    1. This book was a pleasant read; the plot was easy to follow. It was a quick read that had good pacing. The characters I felt had a good dimension to them, easily relatable and easy to understand their nature.Allegra the main character has been plagued by a curse like many others that steals music because of a wrong done to Gerritt who can be seen as the villain in this work. The story line is very original sorta like a mystery as we follow Allegra through her journey of getting this curse lifted. [...]

    2. I love stories that take on music, especially the magical kind. Debut writers often don't start with something this challenging, but I noticed that Earl is also a playwright, so perhaps that gave him the skills to pull this off. This premise is just plain cool, which is a word I've never used to describe a premise. Music has been magically stolen and the prose, as well as the character development, holds up to deliver on my expectations for this novel. The plot cleverly pieces together and the v [...]

    3. This is a charming, wonderful story! I enjoyed ever aspect of it and heartily recommend it--especially for those who love music. This book made me want to sing!Allegra is a young opera singer who ends up traveling in disguise as a minstrel as she seeks to unravel the mystery of the disappearance of music throughout the land. Her quest takes her far from home, through islands populated by sirens and other strange beings. She meets an array of interesting characters along the way. They are all wel [...]

    4. This is a totally different type of book for me. Music is being stolen by a thief, no one can remember anything. I had to finish it as quickly as I could to find out what happens. Superb

    5. I enjoyed this book, the main characters developed nicely, the story line was interesting and not convoluted and hard to follow, I must say it would make a pretty good movie too.

    6. *** I received this book through the First Reads giveaway. (This review contains spoilers.) ***I liked the beginning and the way it started 'in media res'. It left an air of mystery surrounding the antagonist, the music thief. It also left room for interesting character development for Allegra. However, I was a little disappointed in the way she did develop. She didn't evolve much as a person from start to finish. I did like the ending though, with the way the crystals played into her weird drea [...]

    7. I received this book via the First Reads program.As a musician, I knew I would be intrigued by this book. It definitely lived up to those expectations. I appreciated the opera references, and liked the fact that one of the main characters was named Allegra (a feminine form of Allegro, a music tempo).

    8. I'm nearly half-way through the book and each typo I frequently encounter makes me want to quit reading it. The concept is interesting though so I suppose that is why I trudge forth. The characters seem one-dimensional.
