It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still. Liesel Meminger and her younger brother are being taken by their mother to live with a foster family outside Munich. Liesel's father was taken away on the breath of a single, unfamiliar word - Kommunist - and Liesel sees the fear of a similar fate in her mother's eyes. On the journey, Death visits the young boy, and notices Liesel. It will be the first of many near encounters.
It is not often that books attract universal praise but such is the case with The Book Thief. In fact, over three million copies have been sold of this locally written fable of death since its publication four years ago and it has now been translated into 30 languages.
As for reviewers, this is sort of language they use:
'Brilliant and hugely ambitious... The kind of book that can be life changing' - The New York Times
'A beautifully balanced piece of storytelling... Unsettling, thought-provoking, life affirming, triumphant and tragic, this is a novel of breathtaking scope, masterfully told. It is an important work, but also a wonderful page-turner.' - Guardian
This new edition of The Book Thief features the exquisite artwork that featured on the UK version.
