Book Review

By Natalie Weger

The Book Thief is a powerful, yet beautiful masterpiece that will leave readers in pieces. Through his meticulous language and complex characters, Markus Zusak artfully articulates the hardships of World War II through a new perspective. This polished writer has a way with words and delivers them beautifully in this touching story.

Although the book is a little slow moving at first, readers will become captivated by the characters and the novel's compelling themes. The story is packed with emotion and tragedy, yet radiates powerful and gripping messages that will remain with the reader long after they have finished the novel. This story is riveting and painful all at once and is highly recommended for someone who wants to change the way in which they see the world.
