It is 1939. In Nazi Germany, the country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier - and will become busier still. By her brother's graveside, Liesel's life is changed forever when she picks up a single object, abandoned in the snow. It is The Gravedigger's Handbook, and this is her first act of book thievery. So begins Liesel's love affair with books and words, and soon she is stealing from Nazi book-burnings, the mayor's wife's library . . . wherever there are books to be found. But these are dangerous times, and when Liesel's foster family hides a Jew in their basement, nothing will ever be the same again. In superbly crafted writing that burns with intensity, award-winning author Markus Zusak has given us one of the most enduring stories of our time.

This is my absolute favorite book! I have read a lot of Holocaust novels, but this one really sticks out. The characters are very complex. This book also has an extremely unique and thought-provoking element (if you have read it,you know what I mean.)

5.0 The Book Thief
I didn't even bring this book home for myself. It is the strange way that my story with what arguably has become my favourite book begins. I didn't bring it for myself, but still, being me I couldn't resist picking it up and reading a little bit. Only for then, I had to say, sorry, I'm keeping it fo...

5.0 The Book Thief by Markus Zusak: My convoluted thoughts quickly typed
Nobody needs a review from me of a book that's been around forever, but I was so affected by this one that I feel a need to at least commemorate that much. I read it a few weeks ago, and the characters are still with me. I'm still affected by this book, and I'm sure I will be for a very long time. ...

3.0 The Book Thief Review
I started the book on my ride back from Prague. I found this quirky book after looking up the last years (or two years ago, maybe three) top books. This stumbled right into my palms, and I ordered it straight away. Now, it’s not my usual book, which may, possibly, be an explanation for why it’s not ...

5.0 Quite Sublime
The word 'superb' is not one I bandy about lightly, but it seems eminently appropriate for "The Book Thief" by Marcus Zusak. Not only is it inventive in the use of Death as a narrator, which adds a peculiar perspective to the story and confers so much more than a simple device, but the plot and char...
