The narration makes the book three-dimensional. More so than even reading it. I would highly recommend this book especially to somebody who appreciates great metaphors.
What an incredible and unique story, a sharp eyed and original view of WW2. Beautiful writing and a terrific reader.
I Learned a great deal about many wonderful German people during the horrific rule of Hitler. I thoroughly enjoyed the story as well as the reader!!!! Well done!
Beautifully written, beautifully read. A classic for all ages. It's a story of the sweetest things in life, and the horrors which, in contrast, make them even sweeter.
This is one of those books that sticks with you long after you have listened to it. I will hear something about Nazi occupation and will recall scenes from this book. It quickly engages the listener and stays interesting throughout the entire book. I have not yet seen the movie, but believe that I will prefer what I imagined from listening to the story. I highly recommend this book.
The Book Thief would definitely tug at your heartstrings, I will be completely honest, this is the very first book that made me cry so much in both the good and dark times of Liesel's life.
