More than worth the hype
Though in truth, I haven't seen Markus Zusak's The Book Thief promoted anywhere -- I came aross the title in a few blogs and messages boards. This book caught me from the very first page. It's beautifully written and the story is compelling, heartbreaking, and uplifting. I hope they never try to make it a movie.
Finished The Birth House -- good, not great, but worth reading. Now working on Between, Georgia. Seems to be chick-lit, which works well as a palate-cleanser after something so memorable and thought-provoking as The Book Thief.
