    Description

    In Nazi Germany, a young girl whose parents have been whisked away to a concentration camp steals a book. Markus Zusak’s The Book Thief is her story, the story of how Death, the Hooded One, visits her.

    Summary of the Book

    During the Holocaust, the Angel of the Night, Death, also known as the Hooded One, is a very busy being. He is constantly having to whisk away Jews killed by the Nazis at their concentration camps. He encounters a young girl named Liesel, whose parents have been taken to one of the camps. Liesel lives with her foster parents, and her experiences during the war bring subtle changes in her. Death watches as Liesel steals a book, and he begins to follow her as she tries to find more to read in an attempt to escape the gloomy world she is a part of.

    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.

    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 readersâ?? 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...

    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 o...

    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 damn...

    Great product

    This book left me shattered. Something broke inside me while reading the last chapters. Was it my heart? I am not sure. If you want a light read to uplift your mood then DON'T buy this book. But if you need some deep stuff to read, stuff that forces you to think, stuff that never leaves your heart then BUY this book. I couldn't even touch any other novel for several days after reading this one.(Oh my God how much I cried when Liesel kissed dead Rudy.)The most interesting thing however in the ...
