DON’T MISS BRIDGE OF CLAY, MARKUS ZUSAK’S FIRST NOVEL SINCE THE BOOK THIEF. The extraordinary #1 New York Times bestseller that is now a major motion picture, Markus Zusak's unforgettable story is about the ability of books to feed the soul. Nominated as one of America's best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read. When Death has a story to tell, you listen. It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still. Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement. In superbly crafted writing that burns with intensity, award-winning author Markus Zusak, author of I Am the Messenger, has given us one of the most enduring stories of our time. “The kind of book that can be life-changing.” —The New York Times “Deserves a place on the same shelf with The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank.” —USA TodayLearn More

Great story, great narration!
- Great book! A story about WWII, orphans, and the holocaust that's narrated by Death hardly seems like the recipe for a good time, but somehow this book managed to be heartfelt, funny, sad, and meaningful without being depressing. The writing is full of imagery and wit, and the narration is really enjoyable. I found the storytelling style very creative - new takes on a very documented time in history letting you see familiar themes from another perspective. Audio was a great fit for this book as the narrator seemed to really have fun with the characters and German slang. Highly recommend!
