Reviews for The Book Thief
The Book Thief
Oh boy, the tears poured with this one!
What a great story! I really loved this title. This book was a light, flowing read, and yet it was the kind of book that touched me inside and kept me thinking of the story throughout the day! I found myself remembering scenes from the book and trying to remember which movie the scene I had playing in my head came from, to recall that it actually was part of "The Book Thief".
I appreciated that the book painted a picture of probably a very normal household in the second world war. The empathy, sympathy and the human-kindness that was alive and well and bursting to the surface, quietly of its' own accord, made me feel for each and every character in the book.
All in all a great read. I would definitely recommend it and not just to young adults. by natalie
I love this book so much I wish I could give it more than 5 stars.
I was given it as a gift and had never heard of it at the time.
I started reading and couldn't stop- not much got done until I'd finished it.
It was unpredictable and the characters grow on you so much.
Marckus Zusak is a fantastic writer and is a real story teller.
It had me crying but also laughing.
A great read! by Karen Crawford
