The Book Thief

Level 1

ZUSAK, Markus
Visit the author's website

This is a unique novel that has it all - tragedy and comedy, moving and courageous actions, displays of loyalty and friendship - and utter stupidity and cruelty. Above all, it has a truly unusual narrator, who casts his eye over the events without feeling any empathy at all.
