Key Features of The Book Thief

  • Publisher: RHCP

The Book Thief (Paperback) Price: Rs. 375

The Book Thief is the story of a young girl in Nazi Germany. Living with her foster family, she develops a love of books and slowly realizes the power of words, for both good and bad.

Summary Of The Book

Liesel Meminger and her young brother are being taken away from their parents who are communists. On the way to their foster home, the little boy dies. After the funeral, Liesel notices a book, The Grave Digger's Handbook, which she picks up and hides.

She then arrives at the home of their foster parents, Hans and Rosa Hubermann. Hans notices that Liesel is having trouble sleeping at night. She is having nightmares about her dead brother and her mother. Hans plays the accordion for her and tells her stories. She begins to feel safe with him.

Rosa works as a washerwoman, taking in clothes from wealthy families and cleaning them. Liesel has the job of picking up and delivering the clothes. She soon develops a close friendship with a boy in the neighborhood, Rudy Steiner. Hans teaches her to read from the book she picked up by her brother's grave, The Grave Digger's Handbook.

Ilsa Hermann, the mayor’s wife, notices the girl’s love of books and invites Liesel to her house and allows her to choose books from her vast collection. Meanwhile, the Nazi presence becomes more and more evident as Jews are paraded in the streets on their way to isolated camps.

Hans decides to help the son of a Jewish friend who saved his life in the First World War. Max Vandenburg is hidden in the basement and Liesel develops a close bond with him. They both love books and stories and they both share a love and respect for Hans Hubermann. Meanwhile, as an economizing measure, many people including Ilsa stop using Rosa's services. Angered by this, Liesel stops visiting Ilsa, but enters the house furtively with Rudy and steals books.

As a punishment for Hans' actions in helping Jews, he is sent to serve in the army, as is Rudy's father. Fearing for Max's safety, Hans sends him away. Before leaving, Max entrusts Rosa with a gift for Liesel, a book called The Word Shaker, about a young girl who uses the power of words for good.

Liesel receives the book from Rosa, and she begins to realize how powerful words are, as Hitler and his men have been using them for their own purpose. The entire story is narrated by Death, who confesses himself as being haunted and puzzled by humans and their capacities for both good and evil.

Book Thief - The Heart Thief

This is one book which you would long to own, not only to read. After "To Kill a Mocking Bird", this book is one of my favourites. For people like us, who not only loves the stories, but the subject of "books" itself.

I want my life to be narrated by Death (Markus Zusak)

I purchased this book from a roadside stand when I got my salary last month. I usually buy a couple books every few months so that I never run out of things to read. This one is going to linger on the edge of my memories for a long time.

There isin't much of a plot as such, set up in German…

Overrated, but a decent read

I think this should be clearly marked as Young Adult fiction, for older readers there's not much to brag about. Sure lot of carefully selected words to convey the tone and era have been used, character building is kind of average. Over all more of a 'novelty' rather than a good novel.

He Held The Words Like Clouds And Wrung Them Out Like Rain

The Book Thief is not just a book. It is a celebration. Of the beauty of words. Of tender innocence. Of love without any ties of blood. Of the hope hidden behind the heights of despair. Of humanity.
The Book Thief, Liesel Meminger, has watched her brother die. And as he haunts her in her sleep…

Mind Blowing Literature

Such an amazing perspective from Markus Zusak in the voice of Death. Recommend everyone to read to understand the humane feeling in the characters - Rosa, Hans, Rudy and our heroine Liesel.

Even We people are haunted by humans like Death. Their atrocity, betrayalness and violence haunts us…

A Celebration Of Words

There are books(most of them) which after having read, find their places back to the shelf, to be lost in the midst of the growing dust, chucked into oblivion, perhaps for ages. And then there are the books that find a place in the readers’ heart owing to their inimitable quality. Books which urge the reader to heave them out of the shelf now and then, to remove any gathered dust. The Book Thief as you can guess has found its place, in the latter category. This book is truly a celebration of words, and I value Zusak’s talent to play with words as fluently as the story they have created.

Here is a small fact : When Markus Zusak tells a story, you really have to listen.

I decide on my favorite book of the year at the end of it. This year's decision has already been made.
I know I will be haunted by this story for a long long time.

So wonderfully written, so painfully poignant that one can't stand to read anymore and can't stand not to read further

Great Book! Bad Quality!

The Book is awesome - content as in.
But the packaging from Flipkart is so disappointing. The book wasnt covered in bubblewrap or even protective covering. Just put inside a cardboard box of the wrong side. The entire book got dogeared. And, the front cover started peeling into 3 layerd within 2 days of using it.
Hoping for a better packaging and quality next time over.

One awesome book !!

I will consider this book as one of the greatest books of our time. The author has made DEATH as narrator of the story. By the end of the book we start to pity and like "DEATH" at the same time.
An example from the book on how DEATH feels about human.

“I wanted to explain that I am constantly overestimating and underestimating the human race - that rarely do I even simply estimate it. I wanted to ask her how the same thing could be so ugly and so glorious, and its words and stories so damning and brilliant...I AM HAUNTED BY HUMANS.”

A beautiful book amazingly presents many emotions of lif

Genre defying

It is really hard to place this book among the established genres. There is a little of everything a good book, in the traditional sense, needs. But the book simply transcends beyond these elements and stands on its own.

The first element that captured my attention was the narration made by 'Death'. Marvel! He chooses to tell a story set during the holocaust period. One doesn't have to relate themselves to their historical scholarship to devour this gem. The story, holocaust or not, stands on its own merits. Holocaust is perhaps the busiest time 'Death' has ever been in. As he puts his in his

"......................"

From a long time since this book “The Book Thief” coming all across my ways and I saw in all major reviews which stated; this book is all about a story about the power of words and the ability of books to feed the soul but I didn’t find a single thing which justifies this.

The central character Liesel Meminger accidently picks a book called “The Gravedigger's Handbook” and she falls in love with books and words, no idea why? Soon she is engages in the habit of book thievery and the author puts forward some more fictional books which our central character comes across. Nowhere in the book I

There isin't much of a plot as such, set up in Germany under Hitler's bloody regime, it is, basically, a story of how the world war 2 and the Nazi movement affected the people... from the perspective of a 12 year old girl and narrated by Death. Death... that inevitable guy who will come for you at some point in time no matter how hard you try... that Death. S
