This book was O.k. It was not the best book I have ever read but I did like the two different points of view. It was just a bit to slow for my taste. I recommend it to anyone who like historical fiction.

How do the characters of Death, a book thief and her foster parents, a boxing Jew and young German boy who wants to be Jessie Owens make a wonderful reading experience—I am not really sure but they do. When I began to read this book I wasn’t sure I would enjoy Death as the narrator in the setting of World War II, but somehow it works. Death tells the story of Liesel Meminger, a 13-year old girl and “book thief” who has lost her family in the early stages of World War II. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement. I loved the characters, I adored the way the book was written and the plot was brilliantly conceived—5 out of 5 stars.

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! <3 this book!
