ANOTHER THING YOU SHOULD KNOW – DEATH WILL VISIT THE BOOK THIEF THREE TIMES
Saddest book I have ever read!!!!!
Quite a long-winded book. Took me a couple of weeks to get through it, but I loved it. I love the way it is written and thought that it was a clever way to write a novel from death’s point of view. This book is about the second world war which I have an interest in at the moment. It is a very sad book about suffering, so if you like funny happy books, don’t read this. I would recommend this to anyone who loves a good book, and I am aware of their being a film that I must see. This book is for both genders but maybe more girls than boys because of the main character being a girl. This book is so sad and I very nearly cried, but I didn’t. (I never cry in films or books) I definitely hope ou read this and that you enjoy it as much as I did.
