I enjoyed this book, mainly because the narator was so interesting. I really liked death as a narator for his insights into the future and his interesting take on life. I especially liked it when he took people in mid fall off a cliff and said "saved you." He was just so facinating. I also loved Rosa as the stern but loving mother figure. It was a sad story about a girl who grew up in Germany during the second world war. I usually avoid holocost books, but this one was not over sentimental or anything like that. It was important to see how the German people suffered at the time. My only complaint was that the narator kept breaking in with these definitions, character traits or random facts in bold print. It really broke the flow of the story and was distracting.
