In a short blurb? We talk books.
Me: I cried on the train this morning.
Carin: What book were you reading?
Girl knows me well. The book in question is none other then Mark Zusak’s The Book Thief. Debuting at #10 on NPR’s Best Young Adult Novels and as a nominee of my young adult book club, naturally I had to put my vote in for it.
The Book Thief will make you THINK, EXAMINE, and FEEL. It’s the type of book that draws you in, makes you savor the words, and leaves you satisfied every time you put it down. Beautifully written, raw, and with great impact, The Book Thief goes on my list of Must Reads— not for the usual “unputdownable” ability, but for the amazing work of art that Zusak has created.
I really can’t put it any better than the blurb on the cover:
“BRILLIANT and hugely ambitious…
It’s the kind of book that can be LIFE CHANGING.”
– The New York Times
I was hugely impressed and I think you will be to. Read it.
