Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she cant resistbooks. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement.
In superbly crafted writing that burns with intensity, award-winning author Markus Zusak, author of I Am the Messenger, has given us one of the most enduring stories of our time.
"Extraordinary, resonant and relevant, beautiful and angry."
Lisa Hilton, Sunday Telegraph
"A beautifully balanced piece of storytelling. Unsettling, thought-provoking, life affirming, triumphant and tragic, this is a novel of breathtaking scope, masterfully told. It is an important piece of work, but also a wonderful page-turner."
"A moving work which will make many eyes brim."
Marianne Brace, Independent on Sunday
"This is a weighty novel worthy of universal acclaim. A sense of dread prevades this beautifully written novel. As The Book Thief draws to a close, Death says: There's a multitude of stories that I allow to distract me as I work. The story of the Book Thief, who tried to change the world in her own small way, proves one formidable and inspiring distraction."
Lianne Kolirin, The Daily Express
"Brilliant and hugely ambitious ... the kind of book that could be life-changing."
