I can't imagine a better voice to tell this incredibly beautiful, yet tragic story. It happens to be the book I listened to and now I am hooked. The telling of this story I have recommended even to friends that have already read the book on their own, because it is performed so perfectly.
I love well written, artfully narrated stories. The human condition where people endure the unendurable & find redemption or transformation.
What an amazing book. Narrated by Death about a young German girls life. Haunting and beautiful which is how Death describes humans.
The Book Thief tells a story, not often heard, of the non-Jewish Germans victimized by Hitler's reign. Zusak sweeps you up as Death follows the life of a young German girl as her life is devastated time and again by the actions of Hitler. Why does Death care to share this story? Give a listen and hear the narrator share this heart wrenching but hopeful story of strength and love in a terrible time in our history.
I think this is an amazing book. It is extremely touching, and it is told from a very unique perspective! I do think it is not for children, although I think it's meant to be that way.
This audio book immersed me into the story of the book thief. The audio narrator dynamically performed each role so well, I felt like I knew each character! Amazing, I will definitely listen again!!
Harsh touching soft.
The narrarators identity and his point of view.
There are many points at which I cried, but the book is not all sad there are many spaces of interest, tenderness, and delight. I don't want to be a spoiler. I love the way this book was written. I enjoyed Allan's performance of the book as well.
Audio enhanced by reader' s accent...Really enjoyed!! The characters so true & believable they came to life.
