5.0 out of 5 stars Another humdinger
I really can't believe that in the first three months of the year I have come across three gems in "A Thousand Splendid Suns," "A Quiet Belief in Angels" and now "The Book Thief." Each of these books is different but they are all stunning in their own individual way.

The Book Thief is highly original, although it did remind me somewhat of my book of the year...

3.0 out of 5 stars A 'clever' book, but not for everyone
I am ambivalent towards this book. The writing style was definitely unique; I enjoyed the frequent intermissions by the narrator, which gave the story a light-hearted and a nostalgic back-in-your-childhood feel. The ending was particularly well done - poignant, perhaps tear-jerking for many readers.

However, I felt the characterisation altogether a little weak...

Great story, told eloquently. Captured my attention from the start and hugged it tightly the whole way through. Cannot wait to see the film

This is a Christmas gift and the person who asked for it obviously had an idea of background to story. I hope it meets their expectations.

This book is fantastic. It is better than The Boy in the Stripped Pyjamas. Its quite long but very gripping and emotional. A must read!

A brilliant book. When you see it is narrated by death don't let it put you off. It is a sad story told beautifully. Highly recommended

Bought it because I saw the trailers for the film. I was not disappointed. A very different story of the Second World War, set in Germany.
