This was one of the best books I have ever read. Between the original narration and extreme ability to evoke emotion in its' readers, this book was one of a kind. I have read one other book by Zusak and am hooked. However, when I went to the bookstore to check out more of his work, I was disappointed to find him in the Teen Fiction section, with only one other, not too interesting, novel as a choice. Hopefully he will have more interesting books in the future.The Book Thief is a book that has the ability to shape our generation. The only pro to this being in the Teen section, is that hopefully it will get today's youth reading books such as The Book Thief as opposed to Romance novels or the Twilight books. This is the kind of book that can seriously leave an impression on your life and I will highly suggest it to everyone I know.
