I just finished reading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. Wow. I am really kind of blown away by it. It’s truly an amazing book. Superbly written. There are some beautiful lines and phrases in this story. It’s a little long but well worth the read. Oh and the Characterization is great, too. It’s narrated by Death, for starters.

It’s the story of Liesel, a little girl who finds herself living on Himmel Street with foster parents during Nazi Germany. On the way to her foster parents she steals her first book, which is her foray into book thievery. She soon finds that words have power and that they can save or take lives.

You really need to read this book. It’s really, really good.
