it was amazing
bookshelves: young-adult, crossover, books-that-made-me-cry, thieves

No one could narrate this better than Death itself. Having this book written from such an obscure point of view gave Zusak a lot of room to move around in with his descriptions. This book was unique and powerful. You get so in tune with the characters and the book really makes you feel like you are right there.
