The Book Thief...It stole our hearts.

The Evening Club loved this book! It is a joy to read. We loved the characters and the way the book was written.

It is unfortunate that it is considered a Young Adult (YA) book. It is shelved in the YA area of the library and adults very rarely browse there.

It was made YA because it has a 13 year old protagonist. The Book is for all ages...and mostly for adults.

We decided to get the word out about this book...It is a book for everyone to read.

We fell in love with Mama and Papa and Rudy and Leisel and, Max. This story is about Germany during Hitler's reign and we see Germany from the eyes and heart of a young Christian girl. It could not have beeen told better.
I wonder what the Morning club will say about this book....to be continued...

  • we are part of these fun book clubs-we read great books and go into a parallel world of such splendors..This gets me thinking that this has been possible only because we have been blessed to have had a good education-thanks to our parents..
    But then again there are some children in this country who can not even write their own names. Is it not then up to us to make sure that these children also get the education that they deserve.

    Spread the joy of reading, share the love. Be the voice for the millions people to PROMOTE EDUCATION In India

  • This is fabulous book club selection! I'd read it a while back, and then recently re-read it for our upcoming library book discussion on Wednesday. The characters are so lovable, and Zusak's clever use of Death as the narrator is so unusual. Loved the book!
