Reviews

  • Extraordinary, resonant and relevant, beautiful and angry.

    Lisa Hilton, Sunday Telegraph
  • ...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 piece of work, but also a wonderful page-turner.

    Guardian
  • A moving work which will make many eyes brim.

    Marianne Brace, Independent on Sunday
  • This is a weighty novel worthy of universal acclaim. A sense of dread prevades this beautifully written novel. As The Book Thief draws to a close, Death says: "There's a multitude of stories that i allow to distract me as I work." The story of the Book Thief, who tried to change the world in her own small way, proves one formidable and inspiring distraction.

    Lianne Kolirin, The Daily Express
