The Book Thief | Markus Zusak
post image

This is a book which really touched me. A simple storyline told with such masterful talent. It's make the reader understand the characters, their feelings and thoughts. The main character liesel and max are strong personalities capable of changing a person's thoughts and visions. I strongly recommend it to all the bibliophiles here. #happyreading #thebookthief

Hauntingly heartbreaking and yet heart warmimg at the same time, this book just tears into you and puts you back together with an accordian shape hole in your heart. So good!

Actually getting to it down and read for the afternoon! #Shadow is all curled up on my lap ready for a few hours of snuggles. Hoping to make a big dent in #TheBookThief for #MonthOfZusak. I'm a little behind 😟

BookwormAHN I finished The Book Thief and loved it 💚 11mo
Christine11 This is my favourite book - I hope you‘re enjoying it! 💛 11mo
Karisa Book Theif is amazing. I remember it taking me awhile to get into it though. Later, I couldn't put it down. Had so many teary moments too. Beautiful read. 11mo
Karisa Just finished Bridge of Clay too. Difficult but has these moments of pure poetry. 11mo
Andrew65 Hope to finish Bridge of Clay tonight. So different to The Book Thief. First part felt quite disjointed but enjoying the se one half much more. As @Karisa says some beautifully written parts. 11mo
julesG Ugly cried when I finished The Book Thief. It was a good read. I just wish Mr Zusak had taken the time to check some of his phrases for cultural accuracy, i.e. no German says 'Kristall klar' (crystal clear). We compare the clarity of advice or understanding to the water that's used for simmering potato dumplings, which is actually not very clear once the dumplings are done (forgot the name for this stylistic device): Klar wie Kloßbrühe. 😉 11mo
Samplergal I cracked it open, but haven‘t been able to read. Son in law was in a bad car accident and has neck fractures. Sorry I think I‘m out. 11mo
DarcysMom @Samplergal I am sorry to hear about your son-in-law's accident. He and your family are in my thoughts. ❤ 11mo

Andrew65 @Samplergal Sending you positive thoughts! Stay strong. ❤️ 11mo
tonyahoswalt I love this book. Took me forever to get around to reading it, but so glad I did! 11mo
MinDea @Samplergal I am very sorry to hear about your son in law. I hope he is OK and heals quickly. Sending you and your family positive thoughts. 11mo
Blueberry I started Bridge of Clay but couldn't stay with it. I love his other books so I may try this again later because it does have good reviews. 11mo
MinDea @tonyahoswalt I read it years ago and remember loving it. I am enjoying it this time too but I am not very far into it. I hope you are getting some reading in during the holidays! 11mo
MinDea @julesG so interesting! I just looked it up and clear as mud is a sarcastic way of saying that and we use it in much the same way! 11mo
Crazeedi Precious kitty! 11mo
MinDea @julesG do you have any book recommendations about Nazi Germany? Historical or Historical Fiction? I remember last time I read this I wanted to learn more and I am feeling that way again! 11mo
Tanisha_A I am loving it, the writing is super smooth for a subject so difficult. Starting Part lV now. ☺️ 11mo
MinDea @TanishaA I am almost done with Part V! I clagree with you. It's a heavy subject and it is written well to deal with the heaviness. It's so good and pretty quick read. 11mo
julesG @Samplergal Sending positive thoughts your way! 11mo
julesG I'll think about the books on Nazi Germany. There are, of course, a lot. Right now, I all I remember are 11mo
julesG Not sure whether this is available in English 11mo
julesG Robert Harris has a few books 11mo
julesG This is a pre-war family saga and again in German 11mo
julesG This should have an English translation, it's also been made a film 11mo
Coleen_Nieto @MinDea slow going. I'm really hoping to get done reading done this week! 11mo
Amor4Libros @MinDea I read a few pages and could not get into it. Will try again some other time! 11mo
MinDea Thank you @JulesG! I will have to check them out and see which ones I can find in English. 11mo
CaroPi Unfortunately I didn't manage to read this one. Contrary to last year I didn't read much.... 😔 11mo

It is impossible to describe the impact Markus Zusak‘s words have had on my life. He is the reason I am a teacher, and the reason reading is so important to me. I waited for this story for a long time and it did not disappoint. In fact, it absolutely blew me away. Please read “Bridge of Clay,” it is beautiful and will move you completely. #bridgeofclay #markuszusak #thebookthief #fiction #literature #teachersoflitsy

ohurtin @TrishB I loved it! 😃 Wish I could read it for the first time again ha 13mo

This looks interesting. In a dazzling metafictional irony, someone stole my copy of ‘The Book Thief‘. #markuszukas #bridgeofclay #thebookthief #newbooks #justpublished #waterstonespiccadilly #book #books #bookstagram

Merethebookgal Ha, same thing happened to me! I let a coworker *borrow* my copy, and then she quit and I never got it back 🙄 14mo

It‘s been a while since I‘ve been *this* excited about a book. I‘ve been waiting SO, SO LONG for Markus Zusak to come out with a new book and I‘m so happy Bridge of Clay is here 💕 I don‘t know if I could possibly love this as much as The Book Thief but I can‘t wait to find out. #BridgeofClay #TheBookThief #MarkusZusak #LunchtimeReads
