MY THOUGHTS

“I have hated words and I have loved them, and I hope I have made them right.” 

I don’t know how my review can do justice with this uniquely beautiful book. It is not going to be a long review because I am short of words to define how powerful this book was. I expected it to be good but this much wonderful, No I hadn’t.

This is the type of book which makes you feel each and every emotion, One line your heart is full of sadness next line you are giggling…I must say Death is my one of the most favourite narrator and got a serious sense of humour 😂

“The only thing worse than a boy who hates you: a boy that loves you.” 

I am still astonished how easily author defines each and every character. Everyone is different from another bust justifiable. The most interesting thing about this book is every character is grey, No one is an angle. Still, you love some and dislike others.

Rudy, Liesel and Max are my most favourite ❤

“It kills me sometimes, how people die.” 

The flow of the story, the setting, writing, characters, ending, the narrator, text format, the way chapters were named, Everything was so Perfect.

I’ll recommend it to each and everyone again and again.

“I am haunted by humans.”

    This is one of those books which is heartbreaking and life affirming at the same time. I genuinely left my boyfriend locked outside my flat for ten minutes while I finished the book because I just couldn’t bear being interrupted! I didn’t tell him that though… I pretended I hadn’t heard the door. *Shhhh*

  29. I think what pulled me into reading ‘The Book Thief” was the blurb. I make it a habit to purchase books from the bookstores, and this one drew me to it. Nice review by the way. Well written.

    Loved this book! I remember when I first started reading I didn’t like the way it was written with death as the narrator but I soon got over that & still remember the emotions it evoked throughout the book & especially the end. It’s been a few years, I really need to read it again x
