Book Review #92- The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Rate from 1-10: 9

Reason: I liked the book very much, but the format was quite confusing to understand at first. I’ve never read any of Zusak’s books before, so I don’t know if he writes like that all the time. This book was in the view from a German family during World War II. This was one of those books where I felt like crying afterwards..

Summary: It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still.

Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books. 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.
