As I am still on my winter break I am reading like my life depends on it. Well right now it kinda does.
So, yesterday I finished The Book Thief and today I started and finished The Reader. Essentially I’m questioning life and am emotionally drained. They weren’t the best books to read back to back but they were really good books.
Both were written in the first person which forces the reader to have a higher level of connection with the story itself. These books are set in German although at different times still revolving around the holocaust and it’s aftermath.
I found that The Reader was a story told but The Book Thief was a story described. Anyway I would recommend both the books to any fanatical reader.
