The Book Thief

Wow. This book (by Markus Zusak) was stunning. It was wonderful, imaginative, heartbreaking, gritty, and just hands-down an amazing book.

Did I mention I liked it a lot?

Oh yeah, and it's a book about a young girl in Nazi Germany, and it's narrated by Death.

And it seems like someone told me this was a young adult fiction book, but trust me that this book is completely appropriate for older readers.

I don't think I need to explain why it's a little bit of a hard book to read, emotionally, since you can imagine some of the reasons such a topic is not easy. But you also have to trust me that all the pain and suffering is worth it.

Read this book!
