  • 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.

  • 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.

  • The book thief

    This book was unique in that the narrator was Death. Even those it is just a story, I personally also like to think that there were many Germans' who disagreed with Hitler and his ilk, and were defiant enough to help their fellow man albeit by subterfuge. But help in a small way was better than no help at all.
