Book Review #1
My rating: 5/5
‘A poignant, clever and moving book from an amazing talent in Australian literature.’ WEEKEND AUSTRALIAN
‘Absorbing and searing.’ WASHINGTON POST
A very beautiful book that was narrated by Death itself.
It is a story of a young girl, named Liesel Meminger who was adopted by the Hubermaans and was very captivated by the sight of books and words.
It sets in the year of 1939 in Germany where the Nazis and wars are arising. As the story develops, a Jewish man ran for his life and lived with them and could cause the family in extreme danger if anyone were ever to knew.
- History combines with Family Drama.
- I love how Markus writes the story by going from the past and to the present with very intricate details.
- A very interesting plot which is rare to find these days.
- A book that could teach and show you a lot about life.
- A very realistic and detailed book that makes me doubt of it’s truthfulness.
- Highly recommended, to the young and old.
Lastly, after finishing this book, end this splendid experience by watching the adaptation of the book.
