THE BOOK THIEF by Marcus Zasak


About THE BOOK THIEF (taken from

It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still.

Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement.


I hate war books. I just don’t like to read them. They’re sad and depressing and honestly I think they’re boring. I don’t like reading about history I just don’t. But this book was one of the most amazing things I haven ever read.

This book is all the things I mentioned. It’s depressing and boring but it was completely incredible. There was no fast paced action. The book is pretty slow and it’s about the war so it’s pretty depressing. This author can write. You have to be really talented to write something as amazing as this. I don’t even know what to write about it because you have to read it for yourself.

5 out of 5

  1. I thought it was a great book, I was a bit unsure of it being narrated by death at first but once I got into it, I realised how clever and breathtaking it was.
