The Book Thief

The Book Thief - Markus Zusak A fantastic read.
I was surprised to see the language used in the book as advanced and sophisticated as it was considering it's a young adult novel.

The narration by Death was perfect, he has his own non-human personality and way of looking at things that was refreshing.
Also never a bad thing to step away from the stereotypical death portrayals.
The story itself had a bittersweet ending and I needed a few tissues.

I could barely put this book down, I got sucked right into it and had to finish it.

I am eager to watch the movie now and see how it compares, though I have no doubt that Markus Zusak's novel will come out on top :)
