Hi,everyone! I’ve just finished The Book Thief and oh my pizza, it’s been such a good book to read so that’s why I am here today, to tell you about one of my favourite books of all time.
I’ve read this book before but I read it so fast that I didn’t enjoy or understand it. I decided to read it again when I had time so I only really recommend this book to people who like to take time reading a book.
As usual, I can’t summarise a book so I copied the blurb for you.
HERE IS A SMALL FACT – YOU ARE GOING TO DIE
1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier.
Liesel, a nine-year-old girl, is living with a foster family on Himmel Street. Her parents have been taken away to a concentration camp. Liesel steals books. This is her story and the story of the inhabitants of her street when the bombs begin to fall.
SOME IMPORTANT INFORMATION – THIS NOVEL IS NARRATED BY DEATH
It’s a small story, about:
some fanatical Germans
a Jewish fist fighter
and quite a lot of thievery.
ANOTHER THING YOU SHOULD KNOW – DEATH WILL VISIT THE BOOK THIEF THREE TIMES
I absolutely fell in love with the characters in this book and I was deeply unhappy with the author at the end of this book (in a good way). My favourite character in this book is Rudy as he is such a cheeky boy and it’s sweet how he cares for Liesal. This isn’t a romantic!! It’s about friendship and I think this book just illiterates this well.All the way through the book, I never got bored but you must keep reading it or you will get lost.
This book is just perfect and I think there should be a law where you have to read it. I hope you’ve enjoyed this book review and tell me what you think of the book in the comments below 🙂
