Beautiful, compassionate, well written, life affirming, life changing, Markus Zusak's magnificent novel is all this and more. Make this the next book you read!
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.
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.
