The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

May 28, 2014
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Basically, I loved this book. I loved the narrator choice (death), I loved the characters. I loved the love of books, and I LOVED the beautiful writing. To me, the descriptions could only be described as beautiful.

I spent the last half hour crying while reading the book. I mean, I guess I knew sadness was coming, but I still wasn't prepared for it.

The back of the book has some answers from Markus Zusak. There was something he said, they I loved.

I think to love your characters, and miss them when the book is over is wonderful for both the writer and for the reader.

(Side note, I have missed my characters in the book I wrote, but am still editing, so I still get to spend some time with them.)

Anyway, I recommend this book to basically everybody. I don't know if I want to watch the movie. I haven't decided.

Thanks for reading.
