"The only important thing in a book is the meaning that it has for you."

Review: The Book Thief

The Book Thief - Markus Zusak

Where do I even begin with this? I have so many mixed feelings. Let's start at the beginning.

 

It's told by Death. I found that amazingly unique. 

 

The writing style is whacky but once you get it, it flows well enough.

 

It involves Nazi Germany, which is never a wonderful, joyful topic. It always leaves a bad taste in your mouth and makes you feel horrible and helpless 

 

There is no way a book about Nazis can have a happy ending.

 

If you have a soul, this book will make you cry/howl/nauseous. 

 

Read this is you liked Shindler's List.
