Journal Entry 1 by winggoldenwattlewing from Canberra, Australian Capital Territory Australia on Saturday, August 08, 2020
It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will be busier still.
By her brother's graveside, Liesel's life is changed when she picks up a single object, partially hidden in the snow. It is The Gravedigger's Handbook, left behind there by accident, and it is her first act of book thievery. So begins a love affair with books and words, as Liesel, with the help of her accordion-playing foster father, learns to read. Soon she is stealing books from Nazi book-burnings, the mayor's wife's library, wherever there are books to be found.
But these are dangerous times. When Liesel's foster family hides a Jew in their basement, Liesel's world is both opened up, and closed down.

Picked up from a little library in Gundaroo Park (showground), Gundaroo, NSW.

I have copied my review from 2014 here.
A well written book that kept me turning the pages. I liked Death as the narrator and thought s/he was well done. The only thing that I didn't like was having Max endangered when Liesel kept running to him as he was 'paraded' through the town. I know she missed him and loved him, but it was bringing him to the attention of the guards. I am surprised he survived that and I found her behaviour selfish...but I guess she was really still a child. I took a star off my rating of the book.
