Day 6: A book that makes you sad.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak makes me feel more emotions than just sad but this book made me cry multiple times, in many different places through out the book. I was in awe of Marukus Zusak's ability to keep me so involved and invested in the story of Liesel Meminger. If you haven't read The Book Thief yet then it is a must! I cannot give you enough reasons to read this book. It is eye-opening, inspiring, captivating, heart-warming, sad, and wonderful!
Here's what it's about:
It’s just a small story really, about among other things: a girl, some words, an accordionist, some fanatical Germans, a Jewish fist-fighter, and quite a lot of thievery. . . .
Narrated by Death, Markus Zusak's groundbreaking new novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, a young foster girl living outside of Munich in Nazi Germany. Liesel scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she discovers something she can't resist- books. Soon she is stealing books from Nazi book-burnings, the mayor's wife's library, wherever they are to be found.
With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, Liesel learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids, as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement.
