The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak
- Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier.
Liesel, a nine-year-old girl, is living with a foster family on Himmel Street. Her parents have been taken away to a concentration camp. Liesel steals books. This is her story and the story of the inhabitants of her street when the bombs begin to fall.
Extraordinary, resonant and relevant, beautiful and angry.” (Lisa Hilton Sunday Telegraph)
“…a beautifully balanced piece of storytelling…Unsettling, thought-provoking, life affirming, triumphant and tragic, this is a novel of breathtaking scope, masterfully told. It is an important piece of work, but also a wonderful page-turner.” (Guardian)
Please come and join us for a chat about this book ….or just books in general.
