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.
