Hannah Tinti s The Good Thief well deserves and even invites comparison with classic riproaring nineteenth century adventure tales and orphan narratives With an action packed plot and a skillfully created universe Tinti pulls her readers in to a story about stories a tale in which the tale tellers have power to create and re create the past all the while manipulating their futuresRen missing a hand and a history falls swiftly into the world of Benjamin Nab who claims to be Ren s older brother and the key to his past Ren a clear analogue to the orphaned boy brought up by hand type of character that dominates the novels of Dickens Stevenson and others is all too eager to welcome his older brother Nab weaves a skillful tale of Ren s past both to Ren s guardian priest and to Ren himself who eagerly strokes the scalped locks of his dead parents as Nab tells of their demise uickly though Ren discovers Nab s identity a con man common horse thief and resurrectionist in need of a boy to garner his marks sympathyRen and Nab encounter a motley cast of characters during the course of their exploits a deaf old woman a harelipped girl who labors in a mousetrap factory a dwarf and a man in a green velvet suit who s been resurrected from the dead among others Ren s world becomes dreamlike as he watches these characters and characters from his past float into view Each character narrates their own story and add something to Ren s own narrative of his life In the end faced with the truth it s the story Ren s able to create from his experiences that saves himThough Tinti has created a compelling world for Ren and smartly populated it with references to great adventure and intrigue novels of the past the tale rings flat In a tale that insists stories have great meaning and power Ren s story ultimately wields little power save that of reference to and reflection of other great stories References to David Copperfield Kidnapped Oliver Twist and Great Expectations do not a powerful story make The Good Thief has merits and is a well crafted page turning adventure tale of a type not often published today However for a meaningful statement on the power of tales from the past to speak to our lives today readers are best off turning to novels such as Lloyd Jones s Mister Pip a tale that transcends mere reference to Dickens and by being itself transformative further illuminates the transformative power of story
