really liked it
Read in September, 2011

I had to give this book 4 stars for its unique story telling and beautiful language. The theme itself about a young girl living in Nazi Germany who steals books so her PaPa can teach her to read seems mild enough but the living conditions and ultimately the bombings, death and treatment of the Jews is not an enjoyable topic. And the story teller is Death who gathers up the souls of the millions killed in war time, including the truly good German people of this small community.
