The Book Thief

Cover of "The Book Thief"

The Book Thief is my favorite book and has been for several years. It is the book I most often recommend. It's well written and interesting.

The Book Thief is a work of historical fiction and takes places during WWII. Death is the narrator and tells the story of a little girl growing up in nazi Germany. Death names her the Book Theif.

Although I've read many books regarding World War II, this is the first one that I've read that is from a German's child's perspective. Death observes the girl being sent away from her parents, having her friends killed and recruited, often going without enough food, and sneaking around.
