I started The Book Thief when it had just been released, I hated it after 30 pages and put it down. I was either stupid or not concentrating because at the time I didn’t get the fact it was narrated by death.

Then the hype came and I read that death was the narrator, so I though okay let’s give it a second try. This time I loved it and it has been on my top 10 ever since. It is the only book that has ever happened with.

I’m curious, have you read any other books by the same author. What did you think?
