An Academic. Loves books. Reading, listening and talking about them.
Yes. I might go back to come portions of the story.
Listening to the description of an air-raid, and the heart-rending scenes in which our main character is involved, and how she feels. I want to say more. But I know I will spoil it for the listeners.
He was able to bring out the humour and tragedy, the pathos, of the narrative with his, evidently versatile, vocal skill.
Yes. I had tears in my eyes at a few places.
I would love to listen to the same narrator's other books. But, perhaps, after a short break, after listening to some other narrators.
Yes. Beautifully written and I can feel the pain, the agony, and the love of Liesel.
The most memorable moment was perhaps how papa was hinting how they got Liesel her Christmas present.
Amazing. Simply beautifully presented and told, as though there were someone who told me a story in person. It haunts me from the beginning till the end of the story.
The narrator, Liesel, and Rudy are written in detail. Their love, their happiness, and their sorrow touches my heart.

I enjoyed this book, the narrator did a great job!! The book is a war story ...make that a story from a child's view in war torn Germany. there are many ups and downs that will keep you listening to the end.
Wonderful! But so so sad. Loved the narrator too. Will not be sharing with my sensitive 12 year old though.
It was almost difficult to get through the intro, it left me in a state of confusion hoping the rest of the book was different. Once it got to the storyline, it all made sense and the beginning was very nesessary. I loved it. It reached every emotion necessary. It had a different way of reaching the reader and I enjoyed it.
Seriously ! this book should be required reading for all. the story blends the impact of war with the confusion of prejudice and racism etc. this was one of my favorite listens in a long time.
I had seen the movie and it was great, but when I read the book I was blown away. It was so much more involved of course. I watched the movie again after I finished reading and was sad that so much had been cut from the original story.
If you haven't read it, do it, you won't regret it.
