This book was a book that I’ve been meaning to read for a while. However the time never seemed right.
The book is told by our lovely narrator, Death. Like the Grim Reaper sort of Death. He tells us about our main character, The Book Thief.
The Book Thief is set in Hummel Street in Germany during World War II. There is great mention of the war and mention of Jews. Not for anyone racist and not liking war.
This book is however for anyone who is interested in realistic historical fiction, the holocaust/ World War II, books that read like journals, and stories of children growing up.
I would recommend it to a friend. In fact I can’t wait to share it with my sister’s boyfriend.
