Rosie’s Reviews: ‘The Book Thief’

On this edition of Rosie’s Reviews she talks about Markus Zusak’s “The Book Thief”

Imagine dropping everything that you thought you knew to live with total strangers. For Liesel Meminger, this isn’t just an imaginary tale, but a reality. “The Book Thief”  by Markus Zusak, is set in war-stricken Germany. It follows Liesel Meminger as she tries to navigate her new life in Molching, Germany, where she has to relearn everything she thought she knew, while keeping a big secret hidden.

This book is one of my favorite books i’ve read to date. Honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised if this became a classic in fifty years. There aren’t many bad things to say about this book. It’s thick, but I found it a fairly quick read. It didn’t drag on with unnecessary details like other long books that I read. The only true downside to this book is that it’s sad. But if you’re like me and don’t mind sad books, this book is great for you. Overall, I give this book a 4.5/5.
