“Good book, LOVE the auther!
“A thrilling, fun and easy read that by the end of it will have you eager for more. You literally can not put this down, it's to adventurous. This is a book that you will not regret picking up.
My favorite aspects of it were: the characters traveling all around Europe/United States in 13 days, a headstrong, independent female lead who strives for the opposite of most teens *normalcy*, witty dialogue and the thief/spy aspect of it.
Ally Carter knows how to write a very good and entertaining story. A novel that teaches the lesson of knowing the true value of home and family. This is the first of her books that I have read, and definitely will not be the last. She sets up the emotion, character development and plot/story line nicely. There isn't a single character I disliked, that includes Arturo ( the antagonist). Each individual (no matter how big or small a part they played) brought something unique to the story, from Hale (the rich guy, who is a bit of a player and whose first name we do not know) to Gregory Wainwright (a guy who would rather sleep all day, surrounded by the paintings in his museum, then deal with the stress of his job). Heist Society has a little bit of everything for everybody. From romance to mystery, action, undercover work and so on. It is impossible not to adore it.
The mystery of Visily Romani (the greatest thief ever lived), will have you guessing throughout the whole novel. And when the end comes, you'll be absolutely dying for more. Luckily Ally Carter is currently working on book 2 :)
Heist Society is an amazing book, but there were some things that I thought could of been more worked on. One of them was, some parts were very confusing. An example of this is the beginning, I got caught puzzled a few times and had to reread it to understand the situation. Another thing was Kat's description, there wasn't much of it. And it was hard to imagine her, I basically went off the cover model.
Over this book is a enjoyable, must read that I recommend to all. Another cool fact is this novel has been give the rights to Warner Brothers. Is anyone else as excited as I am for a movie version?”
“Fun, light little read. I could see the movie playing in my head, so I hope it's on the way. The characters were a lot of fun and the twisty plot was a blast. Let's hope this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.”Dolores S wrote this review Thursday, April 1, 2010. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“AWESOME BOOK (that i brought for the library by the way so READ IT!!!!)
This book is a book about Katarina Bishop, but Kat for short. Kat wants OUT of the family business, which of course is being a thief, but cant seem to stay out of trouble. but the neither can her father. When Kat's friend, Hale busts her, (more like gets her KICKED OUT!!!!) of her posh boarding school, its because her dad is in trouble. Kat has to travel all around the world, in search of the paintings that MR Taccone owns, but were stolen. Can Kat complete her mission?”
“I loved this book i love Ally Carter and her type of writing, i love how she brought in a strong, independent, determined girl and had her face problems to do with family, love, and her own future....”Noelle K wrote this review Monday, March 29, 2010.
