Goodreads: The Thief Lord

Herr der Diebe: Pangeran Pencuri

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

All of the sudden I stumble to this book and my hand itchy to write something about this book.

I love Cornelia Funke. Yes I do love her and The Thief Lord is actually a great book, the story idea is original and fascinating. I love the way she describes Venice and the adventure of the children.

But there is a big BUT that I want to share. I read this book in Bahasa Indonesia version and it takes all of my efforts to finish this book. And after I finished reading it, I don’t eager to re-read it again.

Surely I wonder why.

Why?

Well, I don’t blame the translator because I didn’t read the original version, which I guess written in German. However, I guess the translator is using the English Version instead of the original version to translate it into Bahasa, so the words are ‘sort-of’ losing its soul because it has been transferred to English and then into Bahasa Indonesia. So, that’s why I don’t like reading this book and it is also applied to Inkheart. I like the story about books and how a person could have power to bring the characters in the book into life but once again, it required all of my will-power to finish the book and until know I haven’t read the second and third book of the Inkheart trilogy.

I guess, I have to read the English version just to prove it since I don’t know any word in German.
