I think regular readers of this blog will know that The Book Thief is my favourite book OF ALL TIME. I'm slightly obsessed, actually. But that's besides the point.
This week the movie was finally released in the UK (it's brilliant; I might blog about it soon) and to celebrate I'm giving away a copy of the book! I want to share it with someone else, so that's what I'm here to do.
In case you're not familiar with this book, here's what it's all about:
HERE IS A SMALL FACT - YOU ARE GOING TO DIE.
1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier.
Liesel, a nine-year-old girl, is living with a foster family on Himmel Street. Her parents have been taken away to a concentration camp. Liesel steals books. This is her story and the story of the inhabitants of her street when the bombs begin to fall.
SOME IMPORTANT INFORMATION - THIS NOVEL IS NARRATED BY DEATH.
It's a small story, about:
some fanatical Germans
a Jewish fist fighter
and quite a lot of thievery.
ANOTHER THING YOU SHOULD KNOW - DEATH WILL VISIT THE BOOK THIEF THREE TIMES.
