I found this book slow to get started, but once it did, wow! A moving story, very powerful. Should be read by everyone who loves books and language. The conceit of having Death as a narrator was brilliantly original. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
This was an extra pin that I chosed because it explains how Liesel stole book and became knowledgeable of the world. On the other hand it talks about how Rudy's death created an impact on "the sky" because he did not deserve to die.
