The Book Thief

by Markus Zusak

Grade: All right


Way too stylized for my personal taste. And of course it was depressing. But not in the good way. I did feel slightly like crying when Rudy died. But that was the only part that was really emotional for me.

And did I mention the stylized part? I mean, what the heck is "breakfast-coloured" sky??? I guess I'm not deep enough to appreciate it. Although, I think not, because I like unusual metaphors. It just seems like he's doing them for the sake of having lots of weird metaphors.

And children SO do not use metaphors like he wrote them to.
