    Story
    (159)

    It is 1939, Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still. By her brother's graveside, Liesel's life is changed when she picks up a single object, partially hidden in the snow. It is The Gravedigger's Handbook, left there by accident, and it is her first act of book thievery. So begins a love affair with books and words, as Liesel, with the help of her accordion-playing foster father, learns to read. Soon she is stealing books from Nazi book-burnings.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I tried to get into this book with an actual book. It was very heavy to start and I kept putting it aside. Listening to it though was a pleasure! Dennis Olsen did a lovely job and the story is wonderful. It kept me captivated and when it was finished, I had that sad feeling when you wonder what you will possibly read next and enjoy as much. The Book Thief Is a must listen.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Papa! He was such a lovely gentle man who had patience and a sense of humour, and wasn't afraid to love.


    What does Dennis Olsen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    for me, pronunciation of the german words and doing german accents.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, it was one that was nice to think about and ponder.
