The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

To begin with I couldn’t decide what to make of this book, but as i sit here with tears on my face I can safely say that it was a heart wrenching tale!
The story is narrated by death of all things, telling the story of liesel and her life in Natzi Germany. It makes the story more profound being narrated by death as he talks about the things he has seen during this time. He also conveys a story of life, love, loyalty, friendship, kindness, cruelty and extreme sorrow.
The beginning of The Book Thief was pleasant and flowed along nicely, working its way into your mind and heart. That fact makes the ending so much sadder seeing as the reader has gone through everything with these characters.
A very good read, well worth the time.

    Happy reading! 🙂
