The Book Thief is the story of Liesel Meminger. Liesel is almost ten when she ends up in Molching with Hans and Rosa Hubermann, her new foster parents. It is 1939. In Nazi Germany. Through their eyes we see Hitler and Nazi Germany; we experience the atrocities and the small kindnesses. Zusak’s story is mostly about everyday things: hunger, pettiness, laughter, hope, cruelty and kindness. Loved it.
I read this many years ago not knowing what to expect. I had always thought of James Patterson as a murder mystery writer. Imagine my surprise when I read this book. I think I'm going to go read it again right now . . .
