This story is narrated by Death himself and takes place in Germany during WWII. It is the story of a young girl named Liesel who despite having her world shattered finds joy in the simple act of readings. Her love of books helps her through and encourages relationships with others while everything seems to be at its worst.

I would recommend this book for any one who likes historical fiction. Also as a warning this book gets intense!
