The Book Thief | Nazi Germany & Beautiful Poetry

This time last week I was thoroughly enjoying The Book Thief. It is one of the best books I have read in a while, purely for the poetry. Every single sentence held lots of meaning so I would love to study this book at a later date.

Markus Zusak was very clever when he chose to have the book narrated by Death. Not many people could pull this off, but it was perfect. I have not done many English Language studies in a while but this book feeded that hunger!

“It kills me sometimes, how people die”

I’ve not written poetry in a while. Though this book didn’t inspire me to, it certainly made me appreciate the art of it.

The characters were very lovable and Max’s story was heart-breaking. I would love to watch the film because the visualisation (as I can see from the trailer) is very accurate. With most book-film conversions, I imagine the characters completely differently to how I pictured them in the book.

This is a book I would love to read again, though I do not have copy of it. I borrowed from a friend (saving my bank account and the environment). I would recommend you do the same, it’s very convenient!

After reading this book, I hit a slump. I went into Pride and Prejudice with very high expectations and didn’t get what I was hoping from the novel. I then moved on to The Secret Barrister. It’s very informative but I can’t read it in large chunks! Now I am slightly recovered, because I am reading a dystopian fiction called Six of Crows (you may have heard of it).


Please recommend me some more of this author, I loved this book ever so much!

What are you reading at the moment?
