Book Review: The Book Thief

This book is narrated by Death, who catches a glimpse of a girl named Leisel whose character intrigues him. This book takes place during the third reich, and while it has a lot of sad moments, there are plenty of fun and touching moments to balance it out. The book accurately describes the strength of the third reich during that time, as well as the strength of a small percentage of people who acted out against the norm in the small ways they could despite the consequences discovery would bring. The relationships between the characters are really well developed and seem very real. The characters are also extremely well developed. This book really got me emotionally involved.
