The Book Thief

Monday, April 15, 2013


I read this book and when I finished it, it reminded me of my cousin. Nothing ever seems to make sense. It's a world filled with beauty and horror. If only we could all see the good in ourselves and one another


I would certainly recommend The Book Thief. 


Who: 
Liesel Meminger 

What: 
A girl who finds nourishment in books in an otherwise senseless time. It is the power of the word that saves her (literally). 

Where:
Munich, Germany 

When:
1940's


There's nothing like getting lost in a good book. Reading sometimes is the only solace. I find that this is true in my own life as well as others. Reading a book allows me to escape my own problems and be absorbed in a completely different world.  

The words I wrote above are just part of the message told in this great story.

If you must know, I don't know what to read next. When I finish a good book I'm scared to attempt another for fear that it won't be as engaging or meaningful

The only thing I do know is that I need to take a lighter route

Any suggestions are more than welcome.

I read this book about 3 years ago and I was also completely immersed in it!!! I sooooo share your view on book reading...Have you given Ken Follett a try? If not, do:-) The only problem is that the second you start any of his books it's hard to put it down:-) Happy more readings:-)

Never heard of this book, but looks interesting, and since you recommend it, I'll check it out.
Well, right now I'm hooked to Terry Pratchet's Disc world series, if you are interested in fantasy :)
"Man's Search for Meaning" is an interesting read as well, with an interesting view on the world :)
