The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

img_9523The Book Thief is an emerging classic, in that it’s widely adored and oft-recommended but only the test of time will reaffirm if its adoration extends beyond (my guess is it probably will). The book details the story of an ordinary German family living through Hitler’s rise to power. The narrator, Liesel, is an incredibly lovable foster child, placed with a caring family who is trying to defy fascism, whilst staying alive. Her connections to everyone she treasures in her life and her losses will tug at your heart: I was a crying, snotty mess by the end of it.

Publication Date: 14 March 2006 by Knopf. Format: Paperback.
