    "So, my beautiful fat girlfriend, Cassidy, is threatening to kick me to the curb again, my best friend suddenly wants to put the brakes on our lives of fabulous fun, my mom and big sister are plotting a future in which I turn into an atomic vampire, and my dad, well, my dad is a big fat question mark that I'm not sure I want the answer to."

    Sash & Em: A Tale of Two Bookies says: "Wouldn't recommend to everyone but great story!"
    "Just another coming-of-age story"

    Story

    An okay book but does not stand out from the thousands of other angst-y teen dramas written just like it. I think the movie will do a better job at standing out.

    Narration is also so-so. Kind of hard to get into the feel of the book when a middle-aged-man is reading like he's a teenager.

    It's just a small story really, about, among other things, a girl, some words, an accordionist, some fanatical Germans, a Jewish fist-fighter, and quite a lot of thievery. Set during World War II in Germany, Markus Zusak's groundbreaking new novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, a foster girl living outside of Munich. Liesel scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can't resist: books.

    Story

    Wonderful and compelling book. I couldn't stop listening even when I would finish my daily commute. Such an interesting perspective coming from the point of view of "Death." I would highly recommend for anyone fascinated by WWII or the politics of Germany during this time.
