    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

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.

    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...

    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.

    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...

    Super!

    I read the ebook version first. Then decided to go for the paperback to keep the book in my collection. It is an amazing novel written in lyrical voice. The grim tone of death as the narrator is appealing enough to keep you hooked till the last page. It is a thick book. But that's OK with me. I love thick books with slow narration. A must read for people who like poetic storytelling

    In love with Liesel Meminger

    This book is smartly written. Mr Zusak has beautifully utilized the 'colours'. The sufferings of common people, both Jews and 'good' Germans have been portrayed. All the characters are matured. One of the best Holocaust novels. However this could have been better. Still it's better than the movie of same title. Nobody is going to regret after reading it.

    The binding quality of the book is average (as done in India) and paper quality is good.

    A true wordsmith in action!

    A book about the love for words in a world where the love for fellow humans was scarce. A celebration of innocence, tragedy and the ultimate truth of life. It is not just a good book, there is something to be learnt in every page.
    When i first started reading the book, the treatment was interesting, the technique of writing different and refreshing. But what makes you go from page to page in a hurry as you want to savor each word is the simplicity in which the writer creates his images- of p...
