The Book Thief

I literally just finished the book, The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak. I don't know why it took me so long to read this book. It was engaging, the characters were memorable, the story was interesting. But for some reason, I would put it aside and finish other books. It was a remarkable story and one that will stay with me for awhile.

I've always read stories set in WW2, especially having to do with the Holocaust. I have a bunch of YA literature set during that time. This year I have read several amazing stories set in that time period, but told from other perspectives, not a Jewish one. They have all been remarkable.

Thanks for your comment :)

The Book Thief is one of my favourites. I actually listened to the audio book version, which is not something I normally do, but it was an interesting experience - being able to hear someone else pronounce the German words helped, I think.
