After reading this book I wanted to go out and start assembling an apocalypse kit. Although it is a great story of survival and of a father and son. The book and then movie are so similar -which doesn't happen very often.
The Book Thief, Markus Zusak, is a historical fiction novel set in Nazi Germany. Told from the perspective of a personified version of Death, The Book Thief is a outstanding and unique story that shows what it's like to be alone and afraid.
