The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

I finished this book about five minutes ago and my goodness what a read. I was worried because it took me a while to get into the book and then suddenly I became hooked and ended up blubbing a bit at the end.

I will write a fuller review tomorrow when my head is clearer and also I have decided I need more of a structure to my reviews so I am going to read some blogs to get some ideas.

But my basic thing to put forward is read this book! And yes I know I am probably one of the few people who hadn't read this book but just in case you haven't yet and was thinking about it- READ IT! lol.

I just started this one yesterday... for a re-read! And I just barely read it last year, so this is unheard of for me. I'm reading it again for my f2f book club, and guess what? It's better the 2nd time around! Wow, does this guy have a way with words or what?

Oh so glad you are enjoying it for a second time! He does have a wonderful way with words- I am going to seek out other works.
