The Book Thief
<p>It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still. </p> <p>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 there by accident, and it is her first act of book thievery.</p> <p>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. </p> <p>But these are dangerous times. When Liesel's foster family hides a Jewish fist-fighter in their basement, Liesel's world is both opened up, and closed down.</p> <p><b><em>The Book Thief</em></b> is a story about the power of words to make worlds. In superbly crafted writing that burns with intensity, award-winning author Markus Zusak has given us one of the most enduring stories of our time.</p> <p><a href="http://www.facebook.com/MarkusZusak"><img src="http://www.panmacmillan.com.au/core/images/facebooklike.png" border="0" alt="Like Markus Zusak on Facebook"/></a> Like Markus Zusak on Facebook</p> <p><a href="http://www.twitter.com/Markus_Zusak"><img src="http://twitter-badges.s3.amazonaws.com/t_small-a.png" border="0" alt="Follow Markus Zusak on Twitter"/></a> Follow Markus Zusak on Twitter</p>

Slow read.. not sure what all the hype is about.
Upon reading many reviews about this book I decided to purchase it. After reading I can now say I am not sure what all the hype is about. I found it slow and certain parts really annoying. Especially the bold inserts throughout the book that divided it.
