The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
I fell in love with this book. I have to say, when I first started it, I had a hard time with the narrator(Death). The language seemed disjointed, and Death’s thoughts seemed unfinished somehow. But the premise was so original that I persisted and I’m so glad I did. Once I submitted to the author’s vision for this story, I was completely entranced. I actually cried in my dentist’s office as I read the end (only an emotional spoiler there). So highly recommended for adults and YA alike.
