Publisher Description

The extraordinary #1 New York Times bestseller about the ability of books to feed the soul even in the darkest of times.
 
Nominated as one of America's best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read.

When Death has a story to tell, you listen.


It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still.

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 can’t resist–books. 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.
 
“The kind of book that can be life-changing.” —The New York Times
 
“Deserves a place on the same shelf with The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank.” —USA Today

Beautiful

This is one of those jewels about WW2. Beautifully written an very worthwhile. Although I would truly liked to see a little more action. But don’t let that keep you from reading it.

It steels your heart and fortifies your soul

I felt more like I was imbibing in this book, it’s characters, real and the best of humanity in the worst of times.
