Customer Review

on 20 August 2009
It's true what they say, this has to be one of the most inspiring and revealing books I have ever read and once you pick it up, you will find it hard to put down.

Set in wartime Germany the story follows a young foster child (Leisel) as she fights the odds to learn and read at a time where great control was set over individual freedom of thought. Leisel finds herself stealing to learn, the first of many steps she and her family take in this story that go against the flow of what was perceived as "right", including concealing a Jew in their basement.

The inspiration this book provides in terms of standing up for what you believe is right as a lesson that we should all take on.

The story's narration (by death) provides an unusual perspective, somewhat objective, to an era that continues to capture the minds of readers.
