The Book Thief – Markus Zusak

A while back I asked for recommendations for books I could down load for my Kindle and somebody suggested The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.

I can’t remember who it was but I want to say a HUGE thank you.  I LOVED the book.

At first I was not so sure, it is written in a style that I am unaccustomed to and it took some getting used to – about 3 pages and then I was hooked.

It is not a fast moving book, you pretty much know the story line as the narrator tells you most of it right at the beginning but it was still an awesome book.

I love reading, I really get into books and can get quite emotional (much more than movies) and this book had me BAWLING my eyes out and I loved it.  I have not cried that much while reading in ages.

It is set in Germany at the start of the Second World War and follows a young girl over a number of years.

  1. Thanks for that – always looking for new kindle reads. Am currently reading A Scattered Life by Karen McQuestion and enjoying it.

    Last week I read Fireflies in December AND Cottonwood Whispers in a few days (jennifer erin valent) Am reading like a fiend again thanks to Kindle. 🙂

  2. I started this book and somehow got distracted by stuff. I am currently reading The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne. Absolutely beautiful. The Book Thief is happening next. Am starting it later.x

I would love to hear from you
