I absolutley love this book. It has a wonderful way of describing things and i love the narration from deaths point of view. I love the character Liesel and her Pappa Hans, i especially love Rudy, but Rosa is also an awsome character, i think that my favorite character, however, is Max. The whole book is heartbreaingly wonderfull. I recomend you read this book but make sure you are ready, it will make you cry.
