    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.

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

    This book was broken into a large number of small chapters which made it fast yet interesting . the characters were brought to life by the narrator and the authors style was outstanding. Set in a small German town before and during the 2nd world war Zusak produces a very plausible atmosphere. Death is our narrator (and hero) and Olsen is masterly with his timing and characters. This is a very pleasant book (despite the subject) and I recommend it to you
