Book Review

The Book Thief recounts the narrative of Liesel, a young lady who is taken to another home since her mom can’t stand to deal with her. The story is told by Death, who turns into a character you come to regard and even feel frustrated about by the end.

The portrayal puts an odd point of view on the story. A lot of what Death says is philosophical and even wonderful. ‘It isn’t the sort of narrative that makes them sob: the wretchedness of Liesel’s tale sneaks up on you.’

The Book Thief is set in Nazi Germany, toward the beginning of World War Two. On the excursion to her new home, Liesel’s more youthful sibling passes on, and she takes her first book: The Gravedigger’s Handbook.

At the point when she shows up at her new home, she, out of nowhere, has another mother and dad. Frequented each night by bad dreams of her sibling’s passing, Liesel and her dad set themselves the test of perusing the book, Liesel’s last connection to her sibling.

A Good MarriageBook Review

I discovered this book somewhat of a stunner. It is one of the main books about the war that I have perused that’s from someone living in Germany’s perspective. It causes you to understand that such countless individuals in Germany became survivors of the war, that they weren’t all underhanded as they are regularly depicted.

Furthermore, it isn’t the sort of story that makes them cry one second and giggle the following. The pity encompassing Liesel’s story creeps up on you until unexpectedly you understand that it resembled this for so many and how genuine it was and is.

Truth be told, The Book Thief gives up a feeling of remorse in certain respects. Since the British bombs are falling in Germany, the British who execute so, numerous in the story and leave the reader’s cheeks absorbed tears.

In general, I would rate it 9/10 and prescribe it to anybody mature 13 & upwards, as it is a genuine story and may not be completely perceived by those more youthful.

Critic’s Views


This is a delightfully composed book. The symbolism is remarkable and caused me to feel like I was there, living in Himmel’s dusty roads. My girl was given this as a midyear understanding task. I chose to peruse it first, and I’m so happy I did. It has gotten one of my main 10 most loved books ever.


The Book Thief is a particularly astounding book; I’m jealous of individuals who have not understood it since they are in for an extraordinary book! The book is composed cunningly. The subject is dull and contracting. God favors the entirety of individuals contacted by that war. Trusting that wars stop existing.


Unbelievably composed of a totally alternate point of view. The repulsions of Hitler and the remorselessness of the Nazis chillingly caught, yet dissipated all through is the predicament of ordinary Germans — Jew and Gentile and the horrendous cost, so a great many needed to pay. Calming, tragic, splendid.
