The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

This competition is now closed but you can see all our current competitions here

We’re sure you’ll have heard of The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak before, but just incase you haven’t or if you fancy reading this classic novel again, this week’s prize is perfect for you…

Zusak has sold over 400,000 copies of this book and it was the best-selling debut literary novel of 2007. When this popular children’s author decided to take a foray into writing adult novels, no one was sure what would happen next, but the result was better than anyone could have imagined.

The Book Thief is one of those stories that pulls your mind in, grasps you by the heart and holds onto your soul. The book is beautifully written and exquisitely touching – a tale of limitless love and unimaginable horrors.

We don’t want to give away too much, but what we will tell you is the book is about the journey of Leisel – a Jew living Himmel Street during the dark days of the Third Reich – the books she steals and the people who change her life.

The entire book is narrated by Death as we uncover this engrossing tale of life, love, burning books and human actions – both achingly wonderful and heart breakingly sad.

If you fancy bulking up your book collection and getting a free copy, you’re in for a treat…
