The Book Thief

I simply loved it. Who knew "death" could be such an interesting story teller? 

I think about people who are able to maintain who they are in the midst of personal catastrophe. I think about broken hearts struggling to heal. I think about the sweet, brief moments of life that bring tremendous meaning when recalled and written down. This book puts those beauties on a pedestal, where they belong.

I have had this book sitting around for a while and haven't been able to delve into it. After your review I just may give it another try.

This book mesemerized me. I couldn't put it down until I finished it, then thought about it for weeks afterwards.
