8. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

This is one of those books that I started many months ago and set aside for a reason I cannot remember. I picked it back up and easily fell in to the story again. I really like this book and the point of view of the protagonist. The main storyteller of the tale of the book thief is not the book thief, but is actually Death or the Grim Reaper. He sees all and hears most and knows those little connecting tidbits to other's stories. During the time of the World War II in Germany, he is a very busy soul catcher. He runs across many stories but is struck by the story of the little book thief and follows her more closely than others. She lives an extraordinary life indeed and this book is well worth reading.

5/5 stars
