Children's Book

Product Details

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Death is busy during the Holocaust.  Liesel Meminger, within the span of a few days, watches her brother die in her arms and is given away by her mother to a couple she has never met.  As a foster child, she learns to steal for things they need.  But when she encounters books, her stealing takes on a new meaning as she bolsters the spirits of her neighbors with her stolen books during bombing raids.  The superb metaphorical descriptions of life in Germany give the reader a crystal vision of scenes and emotions.  Told from the unexpected point of view of Death, this intensely rich story is definitely worth reading.
