On April 16, 2104 nine members met at Robin’s house to disucss The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. Narrated by Death, the story takes place on a street named Himmel which is ironic because it’s translation means Heaven. The book is set in Nazi Germany where the people on this street could care less about Hitler. The adults just want to go about their businesses and the kids just want to play soccer, climb trees and ride bikes. Of course all that is only done in secret out of necessity. It describes a young girl’s relationship with her foster parents, other residents and a Jewish man who hides in her home. Liesel becomes a book thief with the help of the Mayor’s wife who kindly leaves the window open to her library. Weather you read this good book or see the recent movie it is a tender story you will never forget.
