". . . a beautifully balanced piece of storytelling . . . Unsettling, thought-provoking, life affirming, triumphant and tragic, this is a novel of breathtaking scope, masterfully told. It is an important piece of work, but also a wonderful page-turner" (Guardian)
"Zusak's playfulness with language leavens the horror and makes the theme more resonant - words can save your life . . . It's a measure of how sucessfully Zusak has humanized these characters that even though we know they are doomed, it's no less devastating when Death finally reaches them" (Publishers Weekly)
". . . this is a weighty novel worthy of universal acclaim . . . A sense of dread prevades this beautifully written novel . . . As The Book Thief draws to a close, Death says: ". . . There's a multitude of stories . . . that I allow to distract me as I work." The story of the Book Thief, who tried to change the world in her own small way, proves one formidable and inspiring distraction" (Lianne Kolirin Daily Express)
". . . a moving work which will make many eyes brim" (Marianne Brace Independent on Sunday)
". . . it is certainly extraordinary, resonant and relevant, beautiful and angry" (Lisa Hilton Seven - The Independent)

In fact, saying I 'loved' it almost seems wrong because reading this novel was so impactful and such an experience that... that I don't have the proper words.
This is the story of a girl, Liesel, set in Nazi Germany. She's a book thief. And the story is narrated by Death. That's all you need to know. I, personally, was sold when I heard about the narrator. Didn't even need to know anything else.
This is a beautifully written novel about the life of a young girl, the life of people, during war. And it really hits you, the amount of loss caused by war. And for what? Power? Some misconception? It seems such a waste of so many lives, simply because of one man's crusade and a nation of people at his disposal, whether it be by fear or manipulation. The book brings you closer to something that you usually recount only distantly. And it does a wonderful job of it.
This book was amazing. I love the character, the story, the narrator and everything it had to show and tell. This is one novel that I will not soon forget and I very much think that you should read it.
Spoiler alert: you will end up learning many German slangs.
The two major characters and how they come together in the end is still etched in my memory.
How the Mayor's wife finally overcomes her grief.
And the narrator and his beautiful snippets.
This is one book I would recommend everybody to read.
This book has it all, Love, Life, Grief, Death. Everything.
I have seen the movie, but the actual emotions and experience of the characters could only be known as I read the book.
The narration and the narrator of the book was the one thing I loved the most.
