This book puts a spin on normal books. Instead of the narrator being a character or being told in third person The Book Thief has a different narrator. The narrator is Death. Liesel’s life is changed when she picks up a book from beside her brothers grave, her first act of stealing. She later goes to live with her foster family who hides a Jew in their basement. She learns to read, by stealing books and reading. As World War Two continues so does Liesel. I would recommend this book to everyone. Although it is fiction, you will learn a lot about WWII.

This is a great book for people who want another side to the holocaust, like communists. If you enjoy historical fiction, this is for sure something I would recommend!

I’d read several reviews on this book, so decided I should read it. More geared toward teen readers, I did enjoy the book. It was interesting to view WWII through the eyes of a young German girl, with narration assistance by death. Overall a good story--6 out of 10 for me.

This book was sooo good. I watched the movie first so it took me a while to get through it, but I’m so glad I read it even if it took me a while.
