I have no idea how to do justice to such a lyrical, beautiful, desperate, tragic and important work.
Zusak's use of language is a thing of beauty. The narrator was unique and I thoroughly enjoyed the style of story telling.
We follow the life, triumphs and tragedies of Liesel Meminger a young German girl caught in the circumstances of the Second World War.
I believe this novel will stay with me for weeks before I can shake the effects of it. As sad as it was I feel fortunate that I had the opportunity to read it.
Highly recommended. Not for the faint of heart.
