I usually post when I've read a wonderful story. I recently finished "The Book Thief" by Markus Zuzak. It was one of the best books I've read, and very different from other books. The story is being told by Death. Yes, Death, is a character and is telling the story. It's about a young girl living in Nazi Germany...although she is not a Jew. But the story was brilliant and I fell in love with all the characters. If you can stand a saddish book, then I'd highly recommend it. If it's not at your library...you can find it posted online at several reading sites.
