I quit enjoyed this book. The main character comes off as a very believable person. There were two aspects to this story that I particularly like. First, the use of Death as a nearly omniscient narrator was really cool. Second, a WWII story told from the perspective of a German is kind of refreshing, although certainly not new. This girl has had such a hard life, and one can see more hardships to come, but on the whole she deals with them really well and yet not unbelievably. Last but not least I just like the way this author uses his language and crafts his story.
I like historical fiction and look for books that run at least 15 hrs or more.
I loved this book from beginning to end. The narrator grabbed my attention. When the book begins, you think it's going to be extremely sad. But, then it changes and Lisel finds a family. Even though she is a foster child, she manages to make friends with everyone she meets just by being herself. Wow! We can all learn from this!
one of the best performances I've listened to in audio books. Allan doesn't rush, he allows the story to emerge. really powerful sorry told really well.
Zusak has woven his characters into a masterful story. Allan Corduner is one of the most talented narrators I have listened to.
This was the first book I actually dropped tears for. I didn't like the narrator's constant spoiling of the story before he tells it, but other than that frustration, this book is flawless.
This book is absolutely amazing, and delivers strong in every aspect. It's great and Iwould recommend it.
