Review quote

Brilliant and hugely ambitious ... the kind of book that could be life-changing * New York Times Book Review * This is a weighty novel worthy of universal acclaim. A sense of dread prevades this beautifully written novel. As The Book Thief draws to a close, Death says: "There's a multitude of stories that i allow to distract me as I work." The story of the Book Thief, who tried to change the world in her own small way, proves one formidable and inspiring distraction. * The Daily Express * A moving work which will make many eyes brim. * Independent on Sunday * ...a beautifully balanced piece of storytelling...Unsettling, thought-provoking, life affirming, triumphant and tragic, this is a novel of breathtaking scope, masterfully told. It is an important piece of work, but also a wonderful page-turner. * Guardian * Extraordinary, resonant and relevant, beautiful and angry. * Sunday Telegraph *
