MEDIA REVIEWS

Extraordinary, resonant and relevant, beautiful and angry. - Sunday Telegraph

...a beautifully balanced piece of storytelling...Unsettling, thought-provoking, life affirming, triumphant and tragic, this is a novel of breathtaking scope, masterfully told. It is an important piece of work, but also a wonderful page-turner. - Guardian

A moving work which will make many eyes brim. - Independent on Sunday

This is a weighty novel worthy of universal acclaim. A sense of dread prevades this beautifully written novel. As The Book Thief draws to a close, Death says: "There's a multitude of stories that i allow to distract me as I work." The story of the Book Thief, who tried to change the world in her own small way, proves one formidable and inspiring distraction. - The Daily Express

Brilliant and hugely ambitious ... the kind of book that could be life-changing - New York Times Book Review

“Why I loved reading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak”

This book was initially recommended to me by a couple of friends, but at first I dismissed it. I guess I was too wary and afraid to read it, since the quick research that I carried out on it revealed to me that this... More
