The Book Thief – Staff Review – Isabella

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak (Request)(CloudLibrary)

The Book Thief is a classic that I will never get tired of reading. Narrated by Death itself, the novel takes an eye-opening point-of-view of WWII not previously delved into. Death follows many in the novel, including the main character Liesel, a lover of books and all things language who develops sticky fingers following her brother’s death. From small actions such as book thievery, to ones much more courageous and dangerous, Liesel and her foster family rebel against the oppressive Nazi regime. This is a heart-wrenching novel that never fails to make me cry, though I know the ending like the back of my hand. The beautiful writing and incredible story of The Book Thief make it an emotional and inspiring ride.
