About the book

Unlock the more straightforward side of The Book Thief with this concise and insightful summary and analysis! This engaging summary presents an analysis of The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, which follows nine-year-old Liesel as she leaves her mother forever to go and live with her new foster parents. On the way to her new home, she steals a book from the graveyard where her younger brother is buried; this marks the beginning of her discovery of the power of words to connect people and resist oppression. This is particularly significant given the period during which the work is set: Germany during the Second World War, which means that the Nazi Party is regularly burning books and the foster family protects a Jew by hiding him in their basement.
