My Sister's Keeper - One of my favorite authors and books! Not the same as the movie which butchered the ending which was the best part. Saw the author in person at a book signing and she did NOT approve. Such a wonderful message in this book. Highly recommend!!

Great book. It is classified as young adult but I read it and by far it is one of my favorite books I have ever read.
The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak. One of my all time favorite books I have EVER read. Liesel is a girl sent to live with a married couple around the time of WWII. She is a German girl who finds herself hiding a Jew in her house. She finds happiness by stealing books.
Just finished this book today. Narrated by Death, this book tells the story of a young girl in Nazi Germany. Amazing book
"The Book Thief" Markus Zusak. Fiction. The book is set in Nazi, Germany. It describes a young girl's relationship with foster parents, the other resident's of their neighborhood, and a Jewish fist-fighter who hides in her home during WWII. New York Bestseller List (2006) for over 230 weeks. One of my favorite books because it is so well-written.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. Everyone should read this book. It is beautifully narrated by an unlikely sympathetic character. Set in war torn Germany, it is the story of a young girl, the book thief, and those who love her.........MY ALL TIME FAVORITE BOOK
The Book Thief Read July 2014 for Breadalbane book club. WWII from a different perspective. What is Death haunted by? Death the narrator tells the story of a young German girl who's family hid a Jew. She is one of the people left behind that haunts him.
Good Reads: Spring Reading List - Bookclub?
book club book books-worth-reading
Oh, my goodness. I have been reading and hearing about The Book Thief by Markus Zusak for a long time, but I've just now finally read it myself. To be perfectly honest, I picked up my copy over a year ago at the used bookstore in my library and even though I had heard how wonderful it was, I wasn't in a hurry to read it. I have so many books on my "To Read..." list that I have to pick what sounds good that day and a book about the holocaust didn't exactly sound like a fun read. However, when it was my turn to host book club, I went with this one. (Everyone loved it!) And I was right, a book about a young girl's perspective of the holocaust in 1940s Germany wasn't what I would call fun, but it was brilliant. Zusak is an extraordinary author and The Book Thief is beautifully written. The haunting imagery he uses brings the reader right in to the story and the characters are so well developed they feel like friends. Even Death, the narrator of this enthralling novel, seems more like a companion and advocate than the evil Grim Reaper so often envisioned. I think the most shocking thing about this book, for me anyway, was that it wasn't pure fiction. How could this have really happened? I have a simple understanding of the holocaust that probably most publicly educated Americans have. I've read about it, I've seen documentaries (though I admit I skipped Schindler's List because I didn't want those images in my head), but through this book, my eyes have been opened to so much more. It is easy to lump all Germans at that time into the Nazi box, but I now see that there were many Germans who were not in agreement with Hitler and his ideas. The fear was so strong that it was difficult for most people to stand and fight. It is possible that they never knew that the people standing on either side of them wanted to fight, too. Of course, the next logical question to me is this: What can we do to make sure nothing like it ever happens again? We must be involved with and aware of the world around us. We must speak up. We must help those in need and never turn our backs. And now, I must get off my soap box and go read something lighter. This was a wonderful book and one I really believe everyone should read. Have you read it? Tell me what you thought.

Book Club, Olympic Runner, Air Force, Amazing Book, Reading List, Favorite Book, Laura Hillenbrand, Dust Cover
Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand - I've been told by a friend that it's one of the best books he has ever read. Adding it to my must read list!
The book jacket describes the contents as “A World War II story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption.” It is all of that and more. The protagonist is Louis Zamperini who, at the hands of his Japanese captors, survived torture, starvation and sadism that plumb the depths of human evil. It is also the story of the men who endured those horrific conditions with him.
Laura Hillenbrand's Unbroken is an incredible biography of Louis Zamperini - an Olympic runner, Air Force pilot, Japanese prisoner of war, recovered alcoholic, husband, and minister. It's a must-read!
Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand- a World War 2 survival story and the biography of famous olympic runner Louis Zamperini
Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand - kind of looking forward to this movie. A true story of a Berlin Olympics participant who became a WWII airman, shot down, left adrift & captured by Japanese forces. Amazing book! Highly recommend!
Unbroken - Book review - Laura Hillenbrand did so much research for this book that Louis Zamperini claimed she knew more about his life afterwards than he did. Amazing book about an amazing man, who survived unimaginable horrors, and came back stronger than ever.
This is an amazing book. Just finished reading it for my book club. Louie's story is truly inspirational.
As reported in an exclusive for the Hollywood Reporter, Ethan and Joel Coen "have been tapped to rewrite Unbroken, the adaptation of Laura Hillenbrand’s 2010 book, for Universal -- which has been trying to mount a Zamperini story in some form or fashion for decades Universal picked up the rights to the book in January 2011, initially for Francis Lawrence to direct." Angelina Jolie came on board in December, and has reportedly been looking for "top flight" writers for this project. She has spent weeks searching for "top-flight writers" to tackle the project. Read the entire article here. I originally spotlighted UNBROKEN here on Novel Chatter in November, 2010 and am still mesmerized by Louis Zamperini. Here's a bit about this amazing book: On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared. It was that of a young lieutenant, the plane’s bombardier, who was struggling to a life raft and pulling himself aboard. So began one of the most extraordinary odysseys of the Second World War. The lieutenant’s name was Louis Zamperini. In boyhood, he’d been a cunning and incorrigible delinquent, breaking into houses, brawling, and fleeing his home to ride the rails. As a teenager, he had channeled his defiance into running, discovering a prodigious talent that had carried him to the Berlin Olympics and within sight of the four-minute mile. But when war had come, the athlete had become an airman, embarking on a journey that led to his doomed flight, a tiny raft, and a drift into the unknown. Ahead of Zamperini lay thousands of miles of open ocean, leaping sharks, a foundering raft, thirst and starvation, enemy aircraft, and, beyond, a trial even greater. Driven to the limits of endurance, Zamperini would answer desperation with ingenuity; suffering with hope, resolve, and humor; brutality with rebellion. His fate, whether triumph or tragedy, would be suspended on the fraying wire of his will. In her long-awaited new book, Laura Hillenbrand writes with the same rich and vivid narrative voice she displayed in Seabiscuit. Telling an unforgettable story of a man’s journey into extremity, Unbroken is a testament to the resilience of the human mind, body, and spirit. Published November 16th 2010 by Random House
