Customer Reviews

This is one of my favorite books of all time! A story about a young girl's experiences growing up in Nazi Germany and how books changed her life. The story is narrated by Death (who has a surprisingly good sense of humour) and is such an amazing read for any age! I recommend it to every book lover looking for a good read!

I was drawn to this book because of the beautiful cover illustration. It's a story about childhood, love, loss and lots of thievery. Some truly funny moments that almost make you forget Death is telling a story. Definitely one of my favourites.
