It's just a small story really, about, among other things, a girl, some words, an accordionist, some fanatical Germans, a Jewish fist-fighter, and quite a lot of thievery. Set during World War II in Germany, Markus Zusak's groundbreaking new novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, a foster girl living outside of Munich. Liesel scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can't resist: books.

I saw the movie recently and liked it so much I decided to read/listen to the book. Highly recommend this novel. Sad, heartbreaking but funny and lovable at the same time. ❤️

One of my favourite books read to me by my parents growing up. It was a treat listening to it again and brought back so many memories. Great author and wonderful narrator! Now for the next one in the series....

Amazing what bodily injury could do for a man. A fall from a racehorse had left brilliant jockey Sid Halley dangerously depressed, with a wrecked hand and the need for a new career. And now a bullet wound was helping him find one. He'd been with a detective agency since his racing accident, but it wasn't until some two-bit hoodlum drilled a slug into his side that he was sent out on a case of his own. That was where he met Zanna Martin, a woman who just might make life worth living again.

I really enjoyed the story and audiobook. The narration is wonderful except it seems to cut out or change tone/volume every so often.
