Review “Brilliant and hugely ambitious…Some will argue that a book so
difficult and sad may not be appropriate for teenage readers…Adults will
probably like it (this one did), but it’s a great young-adult novel…It’s the
kind of book that can be life-changing, because without ever denying the
essential amorality and randomness of the natural order, The Book Thief offers
us a believable hard-won hope…The hope we see in Liesel is unassailable, the
kind you can hang on to in the midst of poverty and war and violence. Young
readers need such alternatives to ideological rigidity, and such explorations
of how stories matter. And so, come to think of it, do adults.” -New York
Times”The Book Thief is unsettling and unsentimental, yet ultimately poetic.
Its grimness and tragedy run through the reader’s mind like a black-and-white
movie, bereft of the colors of life. Zusak may not have lived under Nazi
domination, but The Book Thief deserves a place on the same shelf with The
Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank and Elie Wiesel’s Night. It seems poised
to become a classic.” -USA Today”Zusak doesn’t sugarcoat anything, but he
makes his ostensibly gloomy subject bearable the same way Kurt Vonnegut did in
Slaughterhouse-Five: with grim, darkly consoling humor.” -Time
Magazine”Elegant, philosophical and moving…Beautiful and important.” -Kirkus
Reviews, Starred”This hefty volume is an achievement…a challenging book in
both length and subject…” -Publisher’s Weekly, Starred “One of the most
highly anticipated young-adult books in years.” -The Wall Street
Journal”Exquisitely written and memorably populated, Zusak’s poignant tribute
to words, survival, and their curiously inevitable entwinement is a tour de
force to be not just read but inhabited.” -The Horn Book Magazine, Starred”An
extraordinary narrative.” -SLJ, Starred Read more About the Author Markus
Zusak is the international bestselling author of six novels, including The
Book Thief and most recently, Bridge of Clay. His work is translated into more
than forty languages, and has spent more than a decade on the New York Times
bestseller list, establishing Zusak as one of the most successful authors to
come out of Australia. All of Zusak’s books – including earlier titles, The
Underdog, Fighting Ruben Wolfe, When Dogs Cry (also titled Getting the Girl),
and The Messenger (or I am the Messenger) – have been awarded numerous honors
around the world, ranging from literary prizes to readers choice awards to
prizes voted on by booksellers. In 2013, The Book Thief was made into a major
motion picture, and in 2018 was voted one of America’s all-time favorite
books, achieving the 14th position on the PBS Great American Read. Also in
2018, Bridge of Clay was selected as a best book of the year in publications
ranging from Entertainment Weekly to the Wall Street Journal. Markus Zusak
grew up in Sydney, Australia, and still lives there with his wife and two
children. Read more See all Editorial Reviews
