  • I wrote in my blog recently that there has been much talk about how the Kindle and other e readers are going to change the world of publishing In a New York Times article, Jenna Worthan held out Lifted as a shining example of this new world primarily because of its length Lamenting that she had not yet been able to actually finish a book on her Kindle, Worthan was thrilled to be able to read Lifted cover to cover on her Kindle I read Lifted on a boring cross country flight, where I flipped betwe [...]


  • i love this new format Kindle Singles which are basically long form magazine pieces and i really enjoyed Ratliff s stunt for WIRED where he made himself disappear off the grid for as long as possible, leaving a few clues and goading readers to catch himis is not a first person experiential piece like this it s a straight up report of a major bank heist in sweden, and a bit of sociological history as to why this kind of heist, while impressively daring large, is almost within the boundaries of no [...]


  • Lifted is my first experience of Kindle Singles and I have to say that I love this new format of short writing pieces or novellas I really enjoyed Evan Ratliff s thrilling re telling of the true story of one of the greatest bank heists in Sweden s history and it was well worth the 1.99US price tag.Memorable QuotesNo memorable quotes


  • I really like the new Kindle Singles format for short length pieces In this case, I found the author s retelling of a real robbery interesting and retry exciting, but about halfway through I already had the whole story and the rest was just additional details Overall worth the money since it was only a couple dollars.


  • This was a very good short true crime story It was nearly great The only gripe I had, the only reason this book gets 4 stars instead of 5, is that I feel the author did not give enough detail into how exactly how the case was solved A few details into the code cracking, and I would have loved it.


  • Quick read Succinct writing allows for a quick read of a real life event without a lot of needless filler The author used details from extensive research to create fast paced action during the heist, which is the part readers are most interested in reading.


  • I wasn t sure what the point of this piece was Yes, it details a robbery Yes, we learn about Swedish law enforcement But otherwise, I wasn t convinced that this was really a story Interesting for people really interested in true crime and bank robberies otherwise skip it.


  • Insanely suspenseful true story about one of the most brazen heists in history Mostly great, but the denouement was a bit of a letdown.


  • A fast paced, true story about a jazzed up bank robbery in Sweden If you like tales of sophisticated bank robberies and the cops who chase them this one is for you.


  • A short but invigorating read, this Kindle single is well worth the 2 asking price What s most interesting is the international appeal.


  • What is it about Sweden that produces such interesting crime writing Long read article or short book, this was very much worth it either way Diverting and interesting.



  • This is a Kindle Single, and runs about 34 pages Ratliff does a sit on the edge of the seat retelling of a Swedish bank heist This is really good crime writing.




  • This was a neat little story Well written I felt like I was reading a burglary fiction novel, but it is actually a true story.
