The Book Thief

Death has taken9780375842207_p0_v6_s260x420 many souls, but one stood out above the others.  The story is about a young, adopted,  German girl living in Nazi Germany during WWII. She begins to steal books and doesn’t even know how to read or write.  The family  hides a Jew in their basement who shares a special friendship with our protagonist.  

 

What makes this story stand out is Death is your narrator. You also understand how many Germans became party members or allowed their children to join the Hitler Youth because it was a means of survival. This is one of the best historical fictions Ive read in a long time.   Plot: 10 Protagonist:10 Perspective: 10 Overall a 10. SM_2
