I just finished The Book Thief and I loved it. It was way better than his other book. I read it in two days, I could hardly put it down. I have always liked reading about the Jews in Germany, and this was a different perspective. My daughter is at the age she is into Ann Frank and when she gets back from the summer with her dad I really want her to read it. I actually cried at the end, and I am a really tough person - usually. This one is going on my hit parade - you are all probably too young to know what that was.

I, too really liked The Book Thief. I liked that it gets to show good Germans as well as introduce the difficult topic of the Holocaust in a way that is not too frightening.

This was my first ever read by an Australian author!

One thing that I hate about Holocaust-themed books is that they are depressing. The Book Thief, however, managed to be quirky and innocent and light-hearted while dealing with death and racism. I loved this book, and immediately went out and bought another Zusak book, I Am the Messenger thinking that I would like it just as much. Unfortunately, I Am the Messenger was a big disappointment after The Book Thief!

They were completely different. I enjoyed I am the Messenger, but I read it first, and it certainly wasn't the classic that I believe The Book Thief will become.
