DescriptionThe extraordinary #1 "New York Times" bestseller that will be in movie theaters on November 15, 2013, Markus Zusak's unforgettable story is about the ability of books to feed the soul. It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still. Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can't resist-books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement. In superbly crafted writing that burns with intensity, award-winning author Markus Zusak, author of "I Am the Messenger, " has given us one of the most enduring stories of our time.

Reviews for The Book Thief
The Book Thief is one of those books that deserves the praise it receives. It may seem that the subject matter has been covered countless times before, but it never ceases to disturb and shock the system. The Holocaust is given a human face by Mark Zusak in the form of a sweet little girl. Leisel's love of books weaves throughout the story and allows the reader to follow her development as she learns more and more each day about both reading and the increasingly violent world building up around her. The characters of Papa, Mama, Max and Rudy will endear you to this hauntingly sweet novel about the resilience of innocence in a world of evil. Amazingly narrated by Death himself which helps to constantly bring you back to the reality of where and when this book is set and the awful events to come. A beautiful novel that will stay with you. by H.
