Heist Society Writing Style

By Ally Carter

Writing Style

Fast-Paced

Ally Carter's Pseudonym Should Be "Page Turner"

Ally Carter pretty much wrote Heist Society to be a movie. You feel the tension as the time clicks by in between chapters: 6 Days Until Taccone's (Deadly) Deadline... 5 Days Until Taccone's (Deadly) Deadline...

And every few pages, a mysterious voice says something mysterious, like, "Actually, it's just the beginning" (1.81), or "Hello, Katarina" (4.74). Lightning strikes, snow falls, church bells ring, and jets take off, too. So you have no choice but to follow Carter's characters on their grand adventures, or be left behind.
