The Book Thief
The Book Thief by Mark Zusak is a fictional story revolving around the time period of the Holocaust. The book is about a young girl who faces many of the common struggles of the era.
I felt this book way very unpredictable, in a good way. You never know what was going to come next. That was mainly the reason I found it so interesting. Also, I naturally took an interest in this period in time and specifically this event. One of the things I thoroughly enjoyed while reading and found especially intriguing was the unique narrator, Death. One would never expect to be on the opposite side’s point of view and that is why it really stood out from other books. It kept the story interesting and mysterious.
I would definitely recommend this book to people who like historical fiction and reading about hard times. It definitely taught me many things about that frightful time period and the true sinister ways of how people were treated. It also taught me how to overcome some tough obstacles and find the silver lining in situations. I am very glad I read it. Lauren R.; Teen Reviewer
