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.
Yes, I will certainly listen again. The story, characters, and audio narration are flawless. This is why I love fiction. This is why I love audio books.
The scene of Rudy painting himself black with charcoal and running laps as his hero 'Jesse Owens' is absolutely fantastic - unforgettable.
I think the whole relationship between Liesel and Papa is beautiful, evolving from strangers to family, fulfilling deep needs in each others lives. Just perfect.
This is wonderful, poetic prose that never crosses the line from artful to pretentious. Excited to see what Mr. Zusak does with the rest of his career in writing.
40-something with a mind that still believes I'm 20 something but a body screaming otherwise! I enjoy listening to Audible books to break the monotony of grading papers and writing exams, care plans, and other various academic baloney. It's a way to escape into another place, another time, and another life. I appreciate the availability of this platform.
Overall, it wasn't one of the best books I've ever read or listened to, but it was a decent story that kept me entertained.
