it was amazing
Read from October 02 to December 07, 2011

I was given this book with the advice to "keep the tissue box close" and by the last 52 pages, I understood why. While I gave The Book Thief 5 stars, I had a difficult time getting into it but when I would pick the book up I could easily read 100 pages in a sitting. I found the narration by death an interesting perspective, especially since Markus Zusak gave death a human like feel. My heart ached for "the book thief" and while I would say the ending was far from happy, the way it was tied up made me feel better about finishing the book. I would absolutely recommend this book with the advice to indeed keep the tissue box handy. And as others have said, please don't let the category it falls under (Young Adult) deter you...this is far more!
