I just finished reading the Book Thief by Markus Zusak today on my flight home from Mexico City. Wow, this book was amazing.
It took me a little while to get into the book, but once I got going, it was very hard to put down. The character development was excellent. The plot was so well thought out and educational.
If you are looking for a good book, this is one I highly recommend.
Thanks to Jennie for the excellent recommendation!
