The Book Thief- Book Review

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:
a girl
an accordionist
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 πŸ™‚

    THIS IS MY FAVORITE BOOK IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE!!!! I’ve always been a fan of Holocaust based fiction novels (or those based on true stories) because I find that with the Holocaust there are so many different aspects to it rather than just “Germans hate Jews.” This book made me cry so hard at the end I’m still not OK and it’s been over a year since I’ve read it. It’s so emotional and beautifully written!!
