Description
(A Michael L. Printz Honor Book and Winner of the 2006 National Jewish Book Award for Children's and Young Adults' Literature and the Commonwealth Writers Prize for Best Book) An extraordinary work of imagination for readers 12 to adult—and now a major motion picture starring Emily Watson, Geoffrey Rush, and young Sophie Nélisse—this is the story of a girl named Liesel living with a poor foster family in Nazi Germany. At her brother's graveside she finds and takes a book lying in the snow, and this simple theft leads to a passion for books that carries her through the years of struggle ahead. Markus Zusak writes with a simplicity of language but an acuteness of observation and intuition, at once innocent and profound—which is appropriate, as his narrator is Death himself, an otherwise amiable being who is haunted by the humans he watches so closely.

"Brilliant and hugely ambitious ... it's the kind of book that can be life changing."—NYTimes

"Zusak doesn't sugarcoat anything, but he makes his ostensibly gloomy subject bearable the same way Kurt Vonnegut did in Slaughterhouse Five: with grim, darkly consoling humor."—Time
