It’s just a small story really, about among other things: a girl, some words, an accordionist, some fanatical Germans, a Jewish fist-fighter, and quite a lot of thievery. . . . Set during World War II in Germany, Markus Zusak’s groundbreaking new novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, a foster girl living outside of Munich. Liesel 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 before he is marched to Dachau. This is an unforgettable story about the ability of books to feed the soul.


From the Back Cover

"The Book Thief" by Markus Zusak is an extraordinary tale set against the backdrop of Nazi Germany, narrated by Death. At its heart is Liesel Meminger, a young girl whose life is forever changed when she steals her first book, igniting a love affair with the written word. As Liesel navigates the tumultuous landscape of World War II, her story unfolds within the confines of her small German town and the impact of war on her relationships, resilience, and humanity.

Zusak's narrative is an evocative blend of literary beauty and historical poignancy. The novel delves into the redemptive power of storytelling and the resilience of the human spirit, capturing the essence of love, loss, and the indomitable will to endure in the face of adversity. "The Book Thief" is a literary masterpiece that transcends its historical setting, leaving an indelible mark on readers with its unforgettable characters and haunting exploration of the profound connections forged through literature and compassion.
