I just finished reading 'The Book Thief' by Marcus Zusak. A lot of thanks to www.friendsofbooks.com which has helped me reconnect with my first love- BOOKS! This book compelled me to thank GOD profusely, for all that he has given me in life. It is written in a metaphorical style with pictorial depictions. Death is the sole narrator here. The story is about the life of a young girl in the times of holocaust; about how this girl gets her motivation from “Words” written in a book she happens to steal. The book also encompasses a wider perspective about human feelings and thoughts in times of adversity. The writing style is very different; writer has used very short sentences which sometimes dip down the reader’s interest. But overall, it is a must read book at least once.
