    Story
    (68)

    In the 1980s, Elton John saw friend after friend, loved one after loved one, perish needlessly from AIDS. In the midst of the plague, he befriended Ryan White, a young Indiana boy ostracized by his town and his school because of the HIV infection he had contracted from a blood transfusion. Ryan's inspiring life and devastating death led Elton to two realizations: His own life was a mess. And he had to do something to help stop the AIDS crisis. Since then, Elton has dedicated himself to overcoming the plague.

    Story
    If you could sum up Love Is the Cure in three words, what would they be?

    Informative, moving, and inspirational


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    His determination to educate, and financially assist, as many people and organizations as possible as to the spread/stopping of AIDS on a global level.


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

    His emotion; his voice (it's impossible to think of anyone else but him as you listen.)


    If you could give Love Is the Cure a new subtitle, what would it be?

    Sir Elton's very personal battle of spreading compassion and education about AIDs to an audience of fear and ignorance; and, his determination to make the world understand that, in the end, love is all you need.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Sir Elton John - his music, his humor, and mostly, his heart!

    Story
    (7273)

    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.
