The Book Thief is on the list of books that you need to read before you die, its a must. This book is narrated by Death. Morbid, but lots of potential. Incorporating it with WW2 made the storyline just that much more interesting. With books that involve the World Wars, most people know the outcomes, but with this book Zusak puts a new twist to it all. It doesn't matter if you know what happened, you still want to know how it ends anyway.
The Book Thief was beautifully written. I really liked how the author would staight out tell us a simple fact that occurred in the future, but not giving the full story so when the time did come it wasn't ruined.
I usually stay away from topics that involve history, because lets be real, history is sometimes boring, but I am really glad that I picked up this book. This novel is heart breaking, I mean it literally broke me. I LOVED it!!!
I recommend this book to anyone 13 or older, just because there are some words that may be hard to understand, especially the German words.
