Book Review: The Book Thief



The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

This YA novel was a Printz Honor Book this year (along with John Green's fabulous An Abundance of Katherines), so I was interested in reading this novel, based on a young girl's experiences in Nazi Germany during World War II.

This novel is narrated by Death, and the narration is at times choppy, out of sync, and I found the story difficult to get into. I struggled and struggled through the novel, and found I didn't enjoy it at all, though I appreciated the author's style and narrative, though I didn't like it.

Not, NOT my favorite YA novel...

I really enjoyed reading this book!! I loved that death told the story and that we got to see a different side of the holecust...through deaths eyes.
