Nise’ from Under The Boardwalk says:
I had to get used to the writing style, but once I did, I could not put it down. It is a young adult book, but adults will love it as well.
Christina from Jackets & Covers says:
I have to say, telling a story set in Nazi Germany from the point of view of death is pretty ingenious. I didn’t know that before I started — it took me a moment to realize who exactly the narrator was — and it almost turned me off to the book because, honestly, a book about Nazi Germany from death’s point of view is morbid, twisted, and…ingenious.
thekoolaidmom from In the Shadow of Mt. TBR says:
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak is haunting and breath-taking, poetically beautiful and filled with truth.
Shelley from ChainReading says:
It takes a little while to get used to the rhythm of the writing and to get used to the narration by death, but KEEP GOING. It will all be worth it.
Julie from Jules’ Book Reviews says:
The writing style was fairly standard, but because of how the narrator (death) told the story, it drew you into the book, and was also able to have you really invested in it. It also had a lot of symbolism and interesting points on humanity, that “death” points out, which I found to be very interesting and had beautiful meanings behind them, that really made the story, and its characters become very real. One part in the end had me in tears, and some emotions behind acts had me close to tears at other times.
Arielle from Bookatopia says:
The first thing I have to say about this book is WOW. It is one of those books that you really get into and the characters become part of you, it is a truly moving story. For a book to be added to my favorites list it has to leave me thinking about it even when I’m not reading it, few books do that but this is definitely one of them.
Hilarie from Never Not Reading says:
I fell hard for almost each and every character in this book. I actually found myself wiping away a few tears as I finished the last few pages. I’ve been reading a lot of great books lately, but this one really stands out as an amazing read.
