What People are Saying About This

Will Manley

"The Book Thief is a highly entertaining and thought provoking study into the mind of a rare book thief. It works nicely on several levels: an exciting true crime potboiler, a gripping courtroom drama, and a fascinating peek into the rarefied air of the world of rare books and manuscripts. It's a unique story that pits a slippery thief against a scholarly rare books librarian. The resolution of this war of wits will surprise you."
