I finished listening to The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. There is a movie based on the book which I’m watching on Monday.
Big Warning: there are some sad parts and some violence.
Before I begin the summary, I should say with this book I’m reading out of comfort zone. I hardly read books about war. At first, I didn’t think I would like the book, but I ended up loving this book. I did cry toward the end of the book.
Anyway, The Book Thief is about a book thief. lol I believe if I lived in that time I would have been a book thief too. Death narrates the story. I didn’t think Death had a heart for people, but he does in this book. This book is set in Nazi Germany. The book thief is a girl named Liesel. Her mother is taking her and her brother to safety in the arms of another family. Her brother though dies on the train on the journey. Liesel can’t read or write, but she steals a book in hopes to someday read it. Her adopted father ends up teaching her to read. She does read that book and other books she steals.
Like I said, I loved this book. Next, I’m going to listen to The Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick.
You can get this book at Amazon.com, Wordery.com, Kobo.com, and Downpour.com.
