Can't wait to read this book!!

Connie (faeriewings) | 86 comments This is one of my favorites. I don't usually read historical fiction, but The Book Thief is absolutely phenomenal. Somewhat of a tearjerker, full of meaning, humor, and general loveliness. Hope you enjoy :)

Cheryl L | 40 comments This book is one of my favourites, and It's the only book that made me cry at the end


message 4: by Lauren (new)

Lauren Stoolfire Absolutely brilliant!


message 5: by Brandon (new)

Brandon Book Nerd (bwm721) This book is one of the few that made me cry, The Book Thief is a genuine piece of art. If you didn't see it before, The Book Thief contains indirect messages and morals that teach you about persistence and hope.


These Violent Delights (Robin) This book is just one word a... masterpiece! Everything about it is perfect. I loved the audio version because the narrator was spot on with Death's voice. I love and own the movie as well

I cried at the end! I wanted to break out into sobs and cry for many many hours!

Ron Scheer | 60 comments I actually didn't like this book. It was hyped up to be this awesome read. I found it boring and hard to get through. Also it didn't seem as real as other holocaust books I've read.

Such an amazing book- one of the best books I've ever read. I was absolutely bawling when I finished and just thinking of it makes me so sad. I also loved the way the story was told- the writing was absolutely beautiful!

I loved this anazing informing wonderful sad book


message 12: by Rachel (new)

Rachel  (APCB Reviews) (gr8rach) This book is amazing, and it hurts my bookish heart that my little sister doesn't like it ;(

The perspective of death is such a cool writing technique/idea. Seeing WWII from a child's POV was quite interesting as well. Well done, fantastic, ASDFGHJKL

Yeah- I'm getting my older sister to read it, and I don't know what I'll do if she doesn't like it....


message 14: by [deleted user] (new)

Yes death was so different but cool

I had to write a report on it and people in my class started crying


message 20: by [deleted user] (new)

Wow that's sad

It is and they haven't even read the book


message 22: by [deleted user] (new)

message 24: by [deleted user] (new)

I totally bawled!


message 27: by Danielle (new)

Danielle | 21 comments Read it again during the booktube-a-thon I love it but I cried too.


message 28: by Erin, Director of Fun and Games (new)

Erin (eisawesome) | 1215 comments Mod
It felt so real though, I don't know how you couldnt


message 29: by [deleted user] (new)

I cried during the book and movie. The sad part is it's not some dystopia that didn't really happen. That was reality for some people back then


message 30: by Danielle (new)

Danielle | 21 comments So true, I think the fact that some of the book is true really lends to the reality of it.


message 31: by Erin, Director of Fun and Games (new)

Erin (eisawesome) | 1215 comments Mod
It was, and it a horrible thought to even think


message 32: by Danielle (new)

Danielle | 21 comments I love historical fiction, though I didn't like history class. Oh the irony.


message 33: by Rachel (new)

Rachel  (APCB Reviews) (gr8rach) I loved this book! I've seen parts of the movie, never seen it the full way through though


message 34: by Erin, Director of Fun and Games (new)

Erin (eisawesome) | 1215 comments Mod
I thought that the movie wasn't as good as the book because they stayed from the topic and added a lot


message 35: by Rachel (new)

Rachel  (APCB Reviews) (gr8rach) The story is good but just so sad... I don't know if I really want to watch the movie. :(

Even though it was a fictional story, an event like this will always feel real no matter what genre


message 37: by [deleted user] (new)

Exactly
