This was an amazing story. The narrator, Death, tells the story of a young girl in Nazi Germany, relating the ups and downs of her life as she learns about the power of words. Death speaks of Liesel's family, the hiding of Jews, the thieving of books, and spins a story of love and hatred, darkness and light, and ultimately the undertakings of human beings.
This is a fun book, and very engaging to read. It is filled with puzzles and clues as the young protagonists attempt to pull a grand escape from an amazing library, using only what's inside. There are many references to great books to read and wonderful authors to check out. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and give it two thumbs up!
This book most certainly deserves status as a classic. It is a warning of what our society could develop into if we do not watch our advances in technology, a reminder of what government can become if we do not watch our human lust for power, a journey to the year of 1984, as Orwell thought it would be. This book is not really a prediction of what the future would be, more a chilling tale of the effects of power and propaganda. 1984 is eloquently written, and straight to the point. The political and social world of 1984 is extremely captivating. This is true literature.
Lemony Snicket presents the reader with facts of life that cannot be avoided. This was a very good book of truths to live by.
This book captures the distinctly different personalities of two people with the same first and last names. Their relationships with each other and the people around them are reflective of actual teen lives, and ultimately how the two Will Graysons influenced each others lives made the entire novel a great read. I loved this book, and would definitely recommend it to anyone interested.
