‘The Book Thief’ by Markus Zusak

Jodi explains how this book has made it back into her life via her youngest daughter, Phoebe at [12:40] in the show podcast below:

The Book Thief
by Markus Zusak

The extraordinary #1 New York Times bestseller that is now a major motion picture, Markus Zusak’s unforgettable story is about the ability of books to feed the soul.

It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still.

Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement.

In superbly crafted writing that burns with intensity, award-winning author Markus Zusak, author of I Am the Messenger, has given us one of the most enduring stories of our time.

I read this book a while ago and really enjoyed. Shared it with family members. The neighbors did come together at one point.

I also loved I Am the Messenger by the same author.
