I started this book three times. The first two times, it just didn't hook me in and I flounderd by pg36. I think initially the style may have been the reason. Or i was just too busy and this novel does need concentration at the start. It's unlike any other book I've read to have Death narrating and throwing irony and dark humour around. Once you begin to see the plot and characters form, the novel reels you in. It's an amazing blend of haunting story and rich characterisation. For fear of sounding trite, it's a must-read.show more

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!show more
