|author Markus Zusak|
Recently I read a book that required me to re-evaluate my thinking. "The Book Thief" by Markus Zusak was not a book I wanted to read. I've read a lot about this period of time and felt like I had a good grasp about what happened. I had decided who were the good guys and who were the bad guys. Even after the first twenty or thirty pages I was not going to finish this book. It was just too hard. But each time I put it down, I had to pick it up again. I am a different person because I finished this book. I speed read a lot of books but I had to read this book slowly . . . every word. For the author had some important morsel on every page.
Raw, difficult to read but life changing.
