The Book Thief

by Janet C on Feb 6, 2014

The Book Thief is beautifully written book. It is written in a sensitive, poetic way. Death is the narrator and that is unusual, but done well and not offensive. Gives an emotional view of citizens and families during the occupation of the Nazi's. I wd recommend it and will probably read it a ... More

A Must Read

by divu on Dec 8, 2013

This book is like none other...it's my most favorite book I've ever read. Such a different perspective on the Nazi invasion; the best is the love of words and reading. Narrative by death is very entertaining. More

Know of other books like this?

This was one of my favorite books that I read last year. Do you guys know of other books like this? They don't have to be about war or the Holocaust (though of course that's OK), but books that are similarly creative and captivating. Please let me know. Thanks!
