The Book Thief – Markus Zusak

This is a great book. A young German girl comes to live with foster parents during World War II. Not only does she learn about the world, but also life lessons during Germany’s darkest time. She befriends many around her, including a Jewish man who comes to hide in the family’s basement during the war. Liesel yearns to learn more her surroundings. Encouraged by her foster father; she takes to innovative ways to acquire books. A young boy also steals her attention. All of this is told dramatically and explored through Liesel’s mind, but as a twist, personified death is the narrator. A definite favourite for historical fiction. (submitted by SMC)

  1. I loved this book so much. My boyfriend had to sit outside my flat and wait for me to finish the book for fifteen minutes before I could let him in when I reached the end.
