Mesmerizing. Tragic. Poetic. Beautiful. Unbelievable. Unconventional (story is narrated by the personage, Death.) Full of Love and hope. Haunting. Transforming. World War II, Germany, during the Blitzkrieg, the death march, an extraordinary narrative built around the world of young, non-Jewish, Liesel, who lives Molching, Germany, with her foster parents. Liesel and her accomplice, Rudy, collect stolen books, and an unusual set of friends. This is probably one of the BEST books I've read this year. Lots of discussion material.
Zusak is a real word shaker. I can hardly wait to see what else he has written. I will tell everyone to read it, young or old!
