The Book Thief - Markus Zusak I have mixed feelings about this one. The way the book is written took me a couple of chapters to get into, but I really loved the shorter break up of sections within each chapter, which keeps you turning the pages. The negatives for me, were the middle of the book dragging for too long which made me begin to lose interest and also I hadn't built up much of a connection or liking for the characters until very late into the book. On the plus side, I liked the relationships portrayed between them and I found situations as they happened to be believable, whether they were good or bad things taking place. I was very unsure about the use of spoilers in the headings and main body of the text, which revealed key factors before they unfolded, but by the end of the book I came to like this tactic. Oh and for me, the ending was pretty spot on and we all know how hard it is to write a good ending!
