The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

  • Angeliques home

The extraordinary #1 New York Times bestseller that will be in movie theaters on November 15, 2013, Markus Zusak's unforgettable story is about the ability of books to feed the soul.

It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still.

Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement.

In superbly crafted writing that burns with intensity, award-winning author Markus Zusak, author of I Am the Messenger, has given us one of the most enduring stories of our time.

    I just joined today so I can't make this one but will be at the next one. Enjoy The Book Thief. Great book! The movie was very good too.

    I just bought "The Book Thief" before reading comments; I guess I need to buy the other book instead (just confirming)?

      No Shannon, we are reading the other one in addition because we already read the book thief. Everyone else is reading that so you are fine! Look forward to meeting you.

    Since Francine and I have already read The Book Thief we decided to read Beth's suggestion Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake by Anna Quindlen. Join us if you want. We can chat about at the beginning for a bit while everyone is snacking and mingling. http://www.amazon.com/Lots-Candles-Plenty-Cake-Quindlen/dp/0812981669

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
