Zusak's novel is a highwire act of inventiveness and emotional suppleness * The Australian * Both gripping and touching, a work that kept me up late into the night feverishly reading the last 300 pages * Cleveland Plain-Dealer * 'Elegant, philosophical and moving. A work to read slowly and savour. Beautiful and important * Kirkus Reviews * One of the most highly anticipated young-adult books in years * The Wall Street Journal * Zusak's playfulness with language leavens the horror and makes the theme more resonant - words can save your life ...It's a measure of how sucessfully Zusak has humanized these characters that even though we know they are doomed, it's no less devastating when Death finally reaches them * Publishers Weekly * Zusak makes his ostensibly gloomy subject bearable in the same way Kurt Vonnegut did in Slaughterhouse 5, with grim, darkly consoling humour * Time * Deserves a place on the shelf with The Diary of Anne Frank - set to become a classic * USA Today * A major achievement * People * Absorbing and searing * Washington Post * His faith in the transformative power of storytelling bestows this gentle but worthwhile novel with its own narrative strength and power. -- Claire Allfree * Metro * Quirky, engaging and beautifully written * Woman and Home * A tonic much needed amid the ominous menace of an era of such calamity. -- Alexandra Hamlyn * FT magazine * ...a fantastic book...it packs a huge emotional punch. -- Angela Lockton, The Golden Treasury, London * The Bookseller * A magical tale. * Elle * ...breathtakingly good. -- Becky Stradwick, Buyer, Borders * The Bookseller * Brilliant and hugely ambitious ... the kind of book that could be life-changing * New York Times Book Review * This is a weighty novel worthy of universal acclaim. A sense of dread prevades this beautifully written novel. As The Book Thief draws to a close, Death says: "There's a multitude of stories that i allow to distract me as I work." The story of the Book Thief, who tried to change the world in her own small way, proves one formidable and inspiring distraction. -- Lianne Kolirin * The Daily Express * A moving work which will make many eyes brim. -- Marianne Brace * Independent on Sunday * ...a beautifully balanced piece of storytelling...Unsettling, thought-provoking, life affirming, triumphant and tragic, this is a novel of breathtaking scope, masterfully told. It is an important piece of work, but also a wonderful page-turner. * Guardian * Extraordinary, resonant and relevant, beautiful and angry. -- Lisa Hilton * Sunday Telegraph *
