The Book Thief by Markus Zusak


The Book Thief by Markus Zusak (shortlink for twitter and facebook http://theyshallwalk.org/?p=657 )

I read a book lately called The Book Thief. It takes place in Germany during World War 2 and is narrated by Death. He is very busywith the war and all but feels compelled to share the story of a girl that is relocated during the war to a foster family. her name is  Leisel.

This book is in the Young Adult genre but I feel it is appropriate to any age. Leisel learns to cope with the war and other events around her by turning to words…books. She gets her hands on them however possible!! There are many images that will stay with you long after you have read the book as the events in this story did happen to the people in Germany and elsewhere during the war. One learns of friendship, the power of words, compassion and how to cope with the horrors of this world we live in. I give it an A+ and recommend it to all. (My sister, who reads as much as me, says “its the best book I’ve read all year”)
