Feature Monday: The Book Thief
I’ve finally gotten to begin reading THE BOOK THIEF. I’ve heard so many wonderful things about Liesel’s journeys that I pushed it right to the top of my TBR pile. So far, the book is a slow read but I’m enjoying it. The jury is still out as to whether or not I’ll go see the movie version or not.
It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still.
Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement.
