    Oct 15,  · The Book Thief by Markus Zusak The Book Thief is Markus Zusak's debut novel. The novel is narrated by death. Death will visit the book thief three times. It is an angry but beautiful coming of age tale. I loved this moving and thought provoking book about Lieser and her foster family on Himmler Street in Germany during the Second World War/5(5K). The Book Thief is a beautifully narrated and superbly told novel. It is impossible not to be drawn into the story and feel like you are living on the streets of Munich during World War II. My only complaint is that this book is listed in the Audible Kids category, where I believe it truly does not belong.
