The Book Thief
by Markus Zusak

On my way home from work last night, I started listening to this audiobook. Many months ago, I read through the book...not finishing it, but reading a decent portion before I ran out of time. The print version is a Printz Honor Book.

It's an intriguing story. Narrated by Death, he tells the tale of young Liesel Meminger, a foster girl living in Nazi Germany. Liesel learns to read and, as the title suggests, becomes a book thief.

I'm still on the first disc. Thus far, the narrator is doing a fabulous job reading the story. I think I am going to enjoy it a lot.
