Sara and 41 other people liked Beth's review of The Book Thief:
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
"It really chaps my hide when 95% of the world is creaming their panties over a book and when I finally get around to reading it, it just doesn't do it for me. It makes me feel like I'm in seventh grade again and there are a group of kids standing..." Read more of this review »

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
"The story of Liesel, a young girl in WW2 Germany. Sent to live with a foster family because her mother cannot keep her (for reasons not completely described). During the trip to the foster family her brother dies. The book that she finds in the sn..." Read more of this review »
Sara and 254 other people liked Diane's review of The Book Thief:
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
"I hated this book. There is so much I disliked about it that I'm not sure where to begin. I recognize that I am in the minority on this one and that many of my GR friends loved this novel, so there's no need to start screaming at me in the comment..." Read more of this review »

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Liesel: Hi, I'm Liesel. I have no personality, but I'm a cute little girl.

Death: Her name is not Liesel. Her name is THE BOOK THIEF and I shall name her that for the rest of the book.

Liesel: Even though I stole, like, 3..." Read more of this review »

A bit meandering and unfocused. I'm not quite sure what this book is: a memoir? a series of essays? musings? Probably more the latter than anything else. Ellis's impressions of people and events throughout his life after becoming a sometimes celebrat ...more

Agatha Christie
“It is a curious thought, but it is only when you see people looking ridiculous that you realize just how much you love them. ”
Agatha Christie, An Autobiography

Stephen King
“Kill your darlings, kill your darlings, even when it breaks your egocentric little scribbler’s heart, kill your darlings.”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

Nick Hornby
“So this is supposed to be the how, and when, and why, and what or reading - about the way that, when reading is going well, one book leads to another and to another, a paper trail of theme and meaning; and how, when it's going badly, when books don't stick or take, when your mood and the mood of the book are fighting like cats, you'd rather do anything but attempt the next paragraph, or reread the last one for the tenth time. "We talked about books," says a character in Charles Baxter's wonderful Feast of Love, "how boring they were to read, but how you loved them anyway. Anyone who hasn't felt like that isn't owning up.”
Nick Hornby, The Polysyllabic Spree

David Sedaris
“If you write a phrase and think, 'Wow, that's really poetic, that's really pretty, I really nailed it,' you get rid of it [because] you've overdone it.”
David Sedaris

Peter V. Brett
“People make the world go, and Mothers make people, so they lead the dance.”
Peter V. Brett, The Warded Man
