On Jacqui's Bookshelf
Just finished reading ... The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Synopsis: It’s just a small story really, about among other things: a girl, some words, an accordionist, some fanatical Germans, a Jewish fist-fighter, and quite a lot of thievery. . .
Jacqui's Review: War is by far not one of my favourite genres but this book is not about war, it's about the impact of war on humanity. Incredibly well written, draws you into the mind, heart & soul of every main character ... 4/5 Stars
Now reading ... The Slap by Christos Tsiolkas
Synopsis: What happens, at a suburban barbecue, when a man slaps a child who is not his own?
