BlurbThe extraordinary #1 New York Times bestseller that is now a major motion picture, Markus Zusak's unforgettable story is about the ability of books to feed the soul.
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.
In superbly crafted writing that burns with intensity, award-winning author Markus Zusak, author of I Am the Messenger, has given us one of the most enduring stories of our time.

The endin was fantastic. And so was the beginning by the way. It's just everything else was so bland to me. I loved the magical realism parts but it just wasn't kept up with enough or made enough of a theme for me. I guess I rated the book so low just because I saw the potential with it, but the ideas just weren't conveyed in a way I really enjoyed. I also thought the switching protagonists so much was too much
Uma historia apaixonante na qual vc chora muito, porém tbm há momentos em que ri!
Uma história linda, Liesel é uma menina doce e ao mesmo tempo uma guerreira. Apaixonante!
A proposta de enredo é muito melhor do que a execução. Livro tediante, talvez se eu conseguir terminar de lê-lo um dia, sem que me dê sono, eu possa mudar de nota.
BEST. BOOK. EVER.
Very beautiful, very poignant. Well written and touching.
Interesting and inciting narration.
