HERE IS A SMALL FACT - YOU ARE GOING TO DIE. 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier. Liesel, a nine-year-old girl, is living with a foster family on Himmel Street. Her parents have been taken away to a concentration camp. Liesel steals books. This is her story and the story of the inhabitants of her street when the bombs begin to fall. SOME IMPORTANT INFORMATION - THIS NOVEL IS NARRATED BY DEATH. It's a small story, about: a girl, an accordionist, some fanatical Germans, a Jewish fist fighter, and quite a lot of thievery. ANOTHER THING YOU SHOULD KNOW - DEATH WILL VISIT THE BOOK THIEF THREE TIMES

3.0 The Book Thief Review

1.5 If I Counted The Ways In Which You Have Disappointed Me....
Some parts were beautiful. A few examples: "Pfiffikus!" she echoed, quickly adopting the appropriate cruelty that childhood seems to require. ...humans like to watch a little destruction. Sand castles, house of cards... Others were just weird. Look at this one: I carried them in my fingers, ...
