Check out The Book Thief
A poignant, heart wrenching story, written in an experimental style that is at times challenging and at times delightful.

(note: I’ve actually never been on tumblr before and just got absorbed while reading the author’s tagged notes on The Book Thief and the actors who brought his characters to life. Makes me like the author even more – he seems like someone it would be wonderful and enriching to sit down with and just chat.)
