The Book Thief

I am in this book right now, and I can't put it down. I get so irritated when I fall asleep reading it, because it is that good. Death is our narrator during holocaust Germany. It is riveting, sad, touching, read, poignant, and a touch humorous, but all in good taste.

The language is thought provoking and the style whimsical, and yet meaningful - much like our narrator. Zusak has captivated me in a few short pages, so I can only imagine what my review will be like when I am finished. I'll let you know :).

I am getting close to the end of reading this book right now. I feel both very excited & very sad to be close to the end, excited to see what happens to Liesel, but sad because it will be the end.

I bought this one so it is in the queue for reading! I'm almost finished with The Glass Castle right now! :)
