Ashlee (Ajax) | 120 comments Listopia Book 1 of 8

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

I only rated this book with one star - was very disappointed

I was actually disappointed in this book. I felt I was pushing my self through just so I could finish the book and get it over and done with. I think what annoyed me the most was it being written in the perspective of the 'grim reaper'. I felt I didn't connect with any of the characters and I couldn't imagine any of the characters because the was no depth of imagination. I still will however watch the movie and see if my thoughts change about the story.

Ashlee (Ajax) | 120 comments Necessary Lies by Diane Chamberlain - Added into two of my challenges - I decided to choose this book as the best of 2013 as I discovered this book my reviewing the goodreads choice awards and this was declared as one of the favorites for 2013. The ratings and reviews on this book look very appealing and this will be the first book of this writer I have read so I am very interested :)
