Book Review: The Book Thief

Book Title: The Book Thief
Author: Markus Zusak

As is often the case with humans, when I read about them in the book thief’s words, I pitied them, though not as much as I felt for the ones I scooped up from various camps in that time. The Germans in basements were pitiable, surely, but at least they had a chance. That basement was not a washroom. They were not sent there for a shower. For those people, life was still achievable.
Death from The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Final Verdict: If you can push through the first 100 pages, it is an eye opening look at World War II, and how books and words can change someone’s life, and impact relationships. However, there are going to be some really sad parts!
