I bought The Book Thief fairly recently after hearing so many people rave about it. I get the feeling though that its a ‘marmite’ book. You either love it or you hate it. I hope I am one of the former.
I adore this cover version of The Book Thief with the plain black background, cream lettering and the gorgeous gold stars dotted here and there. Im guessing they must have changed it to match his latest novel Bridge of Clay.
I was very lucky to be sent a copy of The Bridge of Clay from the publishers Penguin Random House earlier in the year in exchange for an honest review.
I’ll be very honest and admit that I havent actually read it yet though! Disgraceful I hear you cry and youre right. This will be remedied very soon.
I was watching Markus Zusak on You Tube last night being interviewed about both books and doing a TED talk about failure. It was so entertaining, he is a great raconteur.
I’ll be updating my reading of these over on Goodreads. If you fancy following me there I am: Gill Edwards
Have you read either of these?
