Book Review

Name: The Book Thief
Author: Markus Zusak

"People observe the colors of the day only at
its beginning and ends,but to me its quite
clear that a day merges through a multitude
of shades and intonations, with each passing
moment. A single hour can consist of
thousands of different colors.Waxy yellow,
cloud spat blues. Murky darknesses.In my line
of work I make it a point to note them."

Who else other than death can narrate another story , another book written in the world war -2. The interesting story about a girl is mind blowing. Her journey from one book theft to the other covers phases of her life which is hard to imagine. A very touching and at many instances highly philosophical.
Overall I will rate this as a great book and a must read.
