The Book Thief
576 pages; Alfred A. Knopf
This teen—and adult—classic about a German girl who steals books in a Nazi-run town is told by Death itself. Yes, an actor can sound like Death, and even look like it, but never as creepily or as insightful as the voice and face that your own imagination will come up with while reading the novel.
— Leigh Newman
