The Friday 56: The Book Thief

The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted by Freda’s Voice. The rules are simple: Turn to page 56 or 56% on your e-reader and post a line! A couple of weeks ago, I took part while I was reading My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick. This week, I’m reading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.

Genre: Historical (YA)

As we both know, Liesel wasn’t on hand on Himmel Street when Rudy performed his act of childhood infamy. When she looked back, though, it felt like she’d actually been there. In her memory, she had somehow become a member of Rudy’s imaginary audience.

It’s difficult to talk about this book without wanting to let everyone know every single thing that’s going on in it. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to devote a lot of time to it this week, but it’s definitely a book that makes me want to stay up at night to read just one more chapter. Or, you know, finish it in one sitting. The narrator’s voice was the first thing that captured my attention when I started this book within the first few pages.
