The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak is a novel I read a few years ago and adored.
It follows the story of Liesel an orphan girl who is fostered by a family in Nazi Germany. Her foster father teaches her to read leading her to fall in love with the written word so much so she begins to steal books the Nazis are trying to burn. In addition to her dangerous adventures, her foster family are harbouring a Jewish man in their basement, which adds to the suspense and thrill that Zusak creates within his beautiful story telling. He has written a compelling piece of historical fiction whilst maintaining a vast amount of intrigue, excitement and heart-wrenching moments.
I’m yet to see the film but I have no doubt the book is far superior ❤️📚
