The Book Thief is a very harsh book, not shying away from the horrors of Nazi Germany. But if you can stomach it, you'll be rewarded with one of the best pieces of literature based on WWII in years.
Creatively narrated by Death himself, the story follows Liesel and her friends and family dealing with the crazy world around them, and their own personal trifles.
I don't want to give any spoilers, but don't consider anyone safe from death in this book.
The long length may put some off, but the memorable story within is one you won't soon forget! 9.5/10
