Has anybody else read 'The Book Thief' by Markus Zusack? It's set during Nazi Germany, told from the point of view of death. Excellent use of illustrations, the metaphors are amazing, and it's just an incredible piece of literature. If you haven't read it, do so.

I read it. Exceptional piece of work with a very human point of view, on innocence and hope. I think it should be as good as classics such as To Kill a Mockingbird, another story I liked.

To Kill a Mockingbird was excellent. The ending was incredibly suspenseful, and when Jem didn't get to see Boo... I felt so sorry for him.

I feel bad for Jem, but it may be something symbolic. In the book, Jem starts to realize who Boo is without looking at him, so Harper Lee, shows this as a way to show that Jem doesn't have to see Boo to know him.

However, I like the film's version of the Boo sidestory.

I never watched the film, I didn't think it would be on par with the book.
