Part One – “The Grave Digger’s Handbook” (1)

So I realized that the individual parts of this book are probably too long to cover in one post. I’m going to have to write about a couple sections a post, instead. This book might take a while to get through. You’ve been warned.

Having said that, so far it’s been quite and interesting read.

And the Winner Is…

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak!

I promise I didn’t plan in advance to finish Divergent when the movie was coming out. It just worked out that way. Unfortunately, I probably won’t get a chance to see it this weekend, but everyone else should. It was a fun read, and I expect the move will be fun as well.

Anyway, I had a feeling The Book Thief would win this time, and I can’t say I’m disappointed. I’ve been wanting to read this for a long time, and I know a lot of people really love it.

So this is a basic synopsis of this book without having read it: It takes place during World War II in Germany. It’s narrated by Death and follows the life of a little girl named Liesel. She saves a book during a Nazi book burning and discovers her love for reading. It continues to tell the story of all the people Liesel meets during the war, and how her relationship with books develops.

This book isn’t separated into numbered chapters, but into parts. So my blogs might be a little longer than they have been.

Thanks to everyone who voted. Look for my first post on Monday!
