    First book 2014 - good start.

    Truth: I am disappointed that I didn’t get around to reading this that time I borrowed it from my local library, when it was on the new shelf. It looked interesting enough, but the whole Nazi Germany - World War Two setting put me off. A lot. I’ve probably spent at least 12 years of my life avoiding anything relating to this area in human history, basically for the reason mentioned by the narrator in his final line -“I am haunted by humans”. After my traumatic early childhood visit to the Holocaust Museum in Sydney, I avoided modern history and everything related - awful human stuff. However, in the last couple of years, I decided it was necessary to stop avoiding depressing human truths. I did a bunch of modern history subjects at uni, and I survived. Then I heard they were making The Book Thief into a movie, and I knew I’d finally have to read it - first. Nothing like a deadline. It had always been on my reading list. But I just couldn’t bring myself to read it. But I’ve finally read it. And it was great. I’m glad I did. First book of the year. I cried. I laughed. I wept.

    Surprisingly incredible!

    After a very slow start and an instant dislike - I became fascinated by the narrators' stories and couldn't put the book down! Loved it!

    An emotive read

    It took me a while to get my head around the narrative style of writing, but once I did it was captivating. Emotional at time, the author manages to paint a real picture with words, much like the lead character.
