Maybe you’ve already seen the movie, but this month we’re going to be reading this fascinating novel by Marcus Zusak.
Peter mentioned on a previous episode that although this story is set during WWII, it isn’t really a war novel.
What do you think? Does Zusak present the tragedy of war and the Holocaust in a new way? Is there anything about his writing that challenges our preconceptions about this period? And what about the narrator himself? Do we get a different take on Death?
