Audio Book Summary

The extraordinary #1 New York Times bestseller that is now a major motion picture, 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 cant 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 had read the book but in a hurry of course. And the audio actually helped me catch a lot of details that I had missed. I completely enjoy it.

    I had to get nearly halfway through before it finally got my interest. It is worth reading, though. The narrator is absolutely perfect for the role with his accent and voices. I often forgot my own surroundings and found myself on Himmel St with Liesel and Rudy.
