  • wow!

    Wow, this book is told by Death, the narrator. I admit it confused me a little for the first few pages but once I wrapped my head around that I could not put it down. It was not really a story about books or stealing. That was a small part of it. It was about a young girl's childhood and different relationships with people during WW2 in Germany. Thumbs up; give it a read!

  • A touching story

    I've spent a year and a half reading this book, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Himmel street came vividly to life with every page I turned, and through the lens of childhood it almost became a second home. There are glimpses of happiness in Leisel Meminger's life between lives, and although the reader is careful not to expect happy endings, the final blow is still delivered with a semblance of kindness. The central theme of the book is eventually presented with almost childlike clarity. I hope you enjoy navigating this story just as much as I did.

  • Remarkable

    It has been a long time since I have read a book that had both touched me and impressed me in the way this one has. The writing is remarkable and the character of Leisel is both believable and incredible. This is a book that everyone should read- it is accessible for young teen readers yet able to capture the hearts and minds of older readers as well. Although written from the perspective of death, it is not gratuitous or shockingly graphic. It is real, touching, uplifting and heart breaking. It does not cover or dress up the horrors of war, but places them in a role that allows life and hope to prevail.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Get it now and read it!

    A truly remarkable masterpiece. This book does things with literature that I've never experienced. Terms like "modern classic" are cliche, but when they fit, they fit.
