I like this book very much. For example, that he chose Death as the narrator of the book has to be my favorite part. Yet, the quote from page 22 & 23, both indirectly states the plot of the book, but it is speaking of a different event in the book. “AN OBSERVATION: A pair of train guards. A pair of gravediggers. When it came down to it, one of them called the shots. The other did what he was told. The question is what if the other is more than one.” In my opinion, the author, Markus Zusak, has told the reader about the reigning of Hitler over Germany and how Hitler told the public of Germany to believe what he believed and to do as he did. For me, this book was not very difficult to read, but I did not particularly like what happened in the end. However, my favorite part of “The Book Thief” was how the author made vivid explanations of even the simplest of things. Also, my connection to this book was that not everyone survives, but memories will always strive. The rating that I think this book deserves is, from my point of view, four and three fourth-stars. The reason I have selected this, is that it had at least a bit of action on each page to keep you wanting to read
