About this item

Its 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...

Set during World War II in Germany, Markus Zusaks groundbreaking new novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, a foster girl living outside of Munich. Liesel scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she cant resistbooks. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she 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 before he is marched to Dachau.

This is an unforgettable story about the ability of books to feed the soul.

From the Hardcover edition.

My daugther had to read this book over the summer before entering her Freshman year of High School. She couldn't put the book down. She said it was sad, but made her think.

The book thief is a great book, I got it for my daughter who is going into 9th grade, she read it in three days, then before I could get my hands on it my mother in law read it and is also raving about it.
