Some of us love books more than we love people. The Book Thief is the story of one such girl, whose only friends during the holocaust are books.
Summary of the Book
Lives have never been so fragile and cheap, it?s Nazi Germany. A young girl is living with a foster family outside Munich, meanwhile her parents are sent off to the concentration camp. The only thing that assuages her are books. She can?t resist them, thus it?s not food or clothing she steals, but books. She shares them with her neighbors and others during the bombing raids.
The Book Thief is the mesmerising story of how the entire holocaust made a girl find her purpose of life and solace in books.
