When I picked up the book I was a little worried about the different scenes jumping to and fro but once I finally understood characters and scenes I thought, "this is fantastic!" I loved the story, I loved the plot. It was so well written and heartfelt.

Just Buy This Book!
This would be one of the greatest books I've ever read - I really can't praise it enough. I've read it several times and each time come away with a different message - it's a reflection on many things - friendship, death, life, choices - and the choices you make that you never thought you would - and most of all on the powerful lessons that you give as a parent by what you do, and not what you say. It's an incredible love story on many levels too.
It's incredibly powerful, beautifully written and will move you. Don't deny yourself the experience of reading this book. by Mrs Therese Molnarunder review
I really enjoyed reading this book, finishing it in a couple of days. The main character Liesel and several other characters are endearing and the story has a interesting narrative viewpoint and plot. It is set in a time period that could make the story really depressing but the author has beautifully written about both human depravity and endearing love. A great read, will make you cry and smile. by Traceyunder review
My Favourite Book
This book is amazing.
I absolutely loved it. This book was passed on to me from my partners mother and I was not expecting to enjoy it as much as I did. I cannot recommend this book highly enough and have purchased my own copy (through tbd of course) and have passed it on to all my friends. by Jamie Funder review
BREATH TAKING !
This book is fantastic.
Written by a very talented author in a way that I think will be accessable to anyone.
Masterfully written, easy to fall into and even easier to fall in love with.
This is one of my favourite books of all time and I highly reccomend it to anyone.
BUY THIS BOOK - you will not regret it! by Rachael Wilkinsonunder review
First Review Ever
The best book I may have ever read. Easy, super easy to read with the quirky interjections of the narrator and only the second book ever to make me cry. But don't let that put you off, you can't help being pulled into it. May I find other books written like this. Buy it, you won't regret it. by david wilkinsonunder review
