I put off reading this book for the library book club Here are my three reasons for doing so1 It s a Young Adult Book I am an Adult It can t be that good if it s written for young people2 It s about the Holocaust and I think we ve all heard enough about that The author will probably even focus on colors among the grays as in Schindler s List3 I have WAY too many other books to readAfter avoiding the book for as long as possible I sat down hoping to enjoy it enough to gain some clever comments for the book groupTurns out most of my concerns were right But one other thing was also true THIS BOOK ROCKSThe first thing any review will say about this book is that it is narrated by death So I might as well get it out of the way Death the Hooded One the Angel of the Night narrates He is very busy during the war years as you might expect Some people claim this is a mere gimmick and that the story is strong enough as it is I agree that this is a strong story it moves like a sailboat on a brisk day but I think the choice to tell it through Death was a good one Death foreshadows constantly so we know a bit about which of the characters will die Instead of ruining the shock value this heightened my anticipation and dread And isn t that how people feel during war They know some of them are bound to die They know they will lose loved ones It s one long hellish wait to see how it will turn out It s also an unusual take on the Holocaust because it focuses on Liesel an orphaned German girl living in Hitler s birthplace Liesel The Book Thief and the other characters in this book are rich interesting and wily I say wily because at points in the book you hate them but they change and you grow to love them For instance Liesel s adopted mother is a foul mouthed abusive sharp woman SPOILER When Liesel s adopted father is shipped off to war however Liesel creeps through the house to see Rosa sleeping with her husband s accordian strapped around her waist Rosa s changes prove one of the greatest reasons to read good literature to get insight into the type of people we don t usually give a second chance

UPDATE AUG 26 2016 This review has been here 8 years has 18 pages of 854 comments and 764 likes There s no outrage for you to add in the comments section that hasn t already been addressedIf you want to talk about the book or why you liked it or anything else feel free UPDATE FEB 17 2014 I wrote this review 4 years ago on a foreign keyboad so I m well aware that I spelled Chekhov s name wrong I m not going to fix it so please don t drive my review further up in the rankings by commenting on the misspelling You re very dear but I know his name is Anton and not Antonin On that same note you don t need to add comments telling me that I didn t like the book because I don t know how to read and don t understand metaphors I actually have an MA in in English Lit so I do know how to read much better than you do in fact Now uit bothering me before I go get my PhD and then really turn into a credential touting ass UPDATE JULY 10 2013 To all jr high students who find themselves grossly offended by my review please remember that every time you leave a comment here you push my review up even higher in the rankings Please save us both time and energy by not commenting Thnx This was the biggest piece of garbage I ve ever read after The Kite Runner Just as with The Kite Runner I m somewhat shocked that this book is a bestseller and has been given awards chewed up and swallowed by the literary masses and regarded as greatness Riiiight The whole thing can be summed up as the story of a girl who sometimes steals books coming of age during the Holocaust Throw in the snarky narration by Death nifty trick except that it doesn t work a few half assed drawings of birdies and swastikas senseless and often laughable prose that sounds like it was pulled from the poetry journal of a self important 15 year old and a cast of characters that throughout are like watching cardboard cutouts walking around VERY SLOWLY and that s the novel Here are some humble observations First chances are that you Mr Zusak are not Antonin Chekhov You are therefore incapable of properly describing the weather for use as a literary device and you end up sounding like an asshole Don t believe meI like a chocolate colored sky Dark dark chocolate Really Do you now The sky was dripping Like a tap that a child has tried it s hardest to turn off but hasn t uite managed Really Wow Next you ll tell me that the rain was like a shower I m moved Oh how the clouds stumbled in and assembled stupidly in the sky Great obese clouds Yes Stupid obese clouds They need an education and a healthy diet Next chances are that you Mr Zusak are not William Styron or any one of the other small handful of authors that can get away with Holocaust fiction They ve done their research had some inkling of writing ability and were able to tell fascinating stories You invented a fake town in Germany probably so you didn t have to do any research and told a long winded and poorly written story and in 500 pages you couldn t even make it to 1945 so you sloppily dropped off and wrapped it up in 1943 What s the point of writing historical fiction if you can t even stay within the basic confines of that hisotrical event For me this does nothing than trivialize the mass murder of over 6 million people Maybe that s why a 30 year old Australian shouldn t write about the Holocaust But that s just me Moving on But what really makes this book expensive toilet paper is the bad writing which is to be found not just in bizarre descriptions of the weather but really on every page Some personal favorites The breakfast colored sun Somewhere inside her were the souls of words The oldened young man WTF He crawled to a disfigured figure Her words were motionless It smelled like friendship Remind me to sniff my friends next time I see themA multitude of words and sentences were at her fingertips HUH Pinecones littered the ground like cookies Sigh All of this is uite funny coming from a book where the main character supposedly learns the importance of words Further I love that the protagonist comes to the conclusion that Hitler would be nothing without words Really REALLY Would Hitler be nothing without WORDS What about self loathing misplaced blame and hatred an ideology xenophobia charisma an army and a pride injured nation willing to listen Don t those count for something The shit storm comes to an end when a bomb lands on our fictional town wiping out everyone save for the sometimes book thief main character Of course Because weak writers who don t know how to end their story just kill everyone off for a clean break and some nice emotional manipulation Written for maximum tear jerking effect our main character spews out some great lines when she sees the death and destruction around her To her dead mother God damn it you were so beautiful To her dead best friend as she shakes him Wake up I love you Wake up Didn t I see the same thing in that movie My Girl Then she profoundly notes that her dead father was a man with silver eyes not dead ones And this kind of angsty adolescent prose just never ended It went on and on to form the one long ass senseless disjointed story But that s ok Take it all the junk give it a uirky narrator an obscure and mysterious title throw in a Jew on the run from Nazis who likes to draw silly pictures of birds and swastikas and market it all as Holocaust lit Ahh the packaging of bullshit makes for such a sweet best seller Swallow it down America Put it on the shelf next to The Kite Runner You love this You live for this SUCKED
