I can definitely see why The Book Thief is such a crowd pleaser. It was such a brilliant idea to think “outside the box” and have Death himself narrate. Death provides wonderful humour and helps make the book a bit more interesting to read. This book accurately demonstrates how life was during World War Two and the struggles everyone had gone through. Liesel is just a little girl when she has to face the whole world on her own. As readers, we grow up with Liesel and experience her daily life alongside her. This book was beautifully written and I would rate it 4.5 out of 5 stars. Definitely a must read for those who haven’t and I highly recommend it!
