There are no words.
This book is the single most beautiful book I've read to date. Every sentence is a masterpiece.
The story is told from the perspective of Death as he reads the words of the book thief herself. Markus Zusak really does an amazing job of weaving the colors and images with the words.
I cried. You will cry.
This is a perfect book.
READ IT. Just read it.

I have to admit, at the beginning I was like meh another Holocaust book. But because of all the rave reviews I'd heard I decided to continue reading. And OH MAN OH MAN am I glad I did. This book was profound and dynamic in so many ways. There is such beauty in the devastation that surrounds this novel that it is well worth the read.

I haven't read a book in a long time that I wanted to add to my list of all-time favorites, but this book is one. I only finished it last night, so I need to sit with it a bit before trying to find adjectives. Read this; read it now.
Thing Two
Narrated by 'Death' and set in Germany during WWII, this tells the story of a young girl who learns to read - books, her host family, and her community - by stealing books. Nicely done, good young-adult selection.
