One of the most heartbreaking yet uplifting stories you will ever read. If you only buy one book this year then make it this one, beautifully written, and an ending, although inevitable, will have you in tears.

I've read many a book from Lord of the Rings to Steven Erikson's masterful Malazan Books of the Fallen & the awe inspiring Birdsong by Sebastian Faulks but The Book Thief is one of the best books I have ever read!! I urge you to read it!

This is a truely life affirming book, that will have you laughing and crying in equal measure.
The writing is deceptively simple, but the prose is beautiful and in places the descriptions are heartbreaking.
It is a novel about loss, and trying to do the right thing in impossible times. The characters are so well drawn that even when you know their fate - you still hope you're wrong and cry when you're not.
