I am so excited to read this book!

Not a silly question :) I wanted to give people enough time to read a good amount into the book before I started to post! You can start reading as soon as you would like! I plan to read about 40-50 pages a night :)

Yes! This is my second time reading it. It's been a few years since I read it the first time. I forgot how much I love the narration and writing style. It is so easy to follow yet still very powerful. The Book Thief is such a unique story about war-time Germany. A great blend of laughter, love and sadness. Has anyone read the Jesse Owen's part yet?

I have only read it only once. I like this book. Especially the writing style, and the unique perspective, because there are not that many books, where the author would write it in Death's perspective. The author, does a fantastic job of mixing different emotions. One second you are laughing, then you are crying, then you are angry, and so much more.
