Not quite up to The Book Thief
»
»
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, but if you are looking for a book of the caliber of Zusak's most recent book, *The Book Thief,* you may be disappointed. However, it is well worth a read even if it doesn't match the glory of that book. The premise is interesting and well developed, the characters are suitably flawed but endearing, and the situations the main character ends up in are realistic even in a fantastical book. There was a love story that I found a bit predictable and dull, but other than that, I enjoyed this book.
