Review

“[La ladrona de libros] será ampliamente leída y admirada por que cuenta una historia donde los libros se convierten en tesoros. Y con un sentimiento así no se puede discutir”. —The New York Times
 
“Merece un sitio en la misma estantería que Diario de una adolescente de Ana Frank… Se convertirá en un clásico”. —USA Today --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

More About the Author

Markus Zusak was born in 1975 and is the author of five books, including the international bestseller, The Book Thief, which is translated into more than forty languages. First released in 2005, The Book Thief has spent a total of 400 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, and still remains there eight years after it first came out.

His first three books, The Underdog, Fighting Ruben Wolfe and When Dogs Cry (also known as Getting the Girl), released between 1999 and 2001, were all published internationally and garnered a number of awards and honours in his native Australia, and the USA.

The Messenger (or I am the Messenger), published in 2002, won the 2003 Australian Children's Book Council Book of the Year Award (Older Readers) and the 2003 NSW Premier's Literary Award (Ethel Turner Prize), as well as receiving a Printz Honour in America. It also won numerous national readers choice awards across Europe, including the highly regarded Deutscher Jugendliteratur prize in Germany.

It is The Book Thief, however, that has established Markus Zusak as one of the most successful authors to come out of Australia. To date, The Book Thief has held the number one position at Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, the New York Times bestseller list, as well as in countries across South America, Europe and Asia. It has also been in the top five bestsellers in the UK and several other territories. It has amassed many and varied awards, ranging from literary prizes to readers choice awards to prizes voted on by booksellers. It was the only book to feature on both the USA and UK World Book Night Lists in 2012, and has now been adapted into a major motion picture.

The Book Thief (the film adaptation) is directed by Emmy Award-winning Brian Percival (Downton Abbey) and was shot in Berlin by Twentieth Century Fox. The cast is headlined by Academy Award winner Geoffrey Rush (Shine, The King's Speech) and Academy Award nominee Emily Watson (Breaking the Waves, Anna Karenina). It also includes exciting new talents Ben Schnetzer, Nico Liersch, and Sophie Nelisse (Monsieur Lazhar), with Nelisse cast as The Book Thief, Liesel Meminger.

The Guardian calls The Book Thief "a novel of breathtaking scope, masterfully told." The New York Times: "Brilliant and hugely ambitious...the kind of book that can be life-changing." The Age: "an original, moving, beautifully written book."
Markus Zusak grew up in Sydney, Australia, and still lives there with his wife and two children.

Format: Paperback
Este libro es una joya. La historia es tierna, triste, realista, pero con un toque de fantasía que le da "la narradora" de la historia. Me transportó a la Alemania nazi y me hizo ver la otra cara de la moneda... personas compasivas, que no se dejaron convencer por el discurso del Fuhrer, o que empezaron a ver la realidad cuando vieron las atrocidades que estaban sucediendo a su alrededor. También me impresionó la pobreza que reinaba entre los protagonistas de la novela, una pobreza que muchos tal vez nunca han vivido ni recuerdan. Finalmente, me encantó la manera original de presentar la historia, los títulos y subtítulos de los capítulos, y otros recursos literarios que utiliza el autor. Excelente libro, lo recomiendo.

La ladrona de libros me encantó desde el principio. Conmovedora historia y muy humana que a veces me hizo llorar y otras reir. Lo recomiendo de principio a fin.

Muy conmovedora, este Zusak de verdad sabe ponerle corazón al relato. No voy a repetir la sinopsis del libro, solo diré que la vision de la alemania nazi desde la perspectiva de una niña alemana es lo que hace el concepto inovador. Los recursos literarios usados por Zusak son sorprendentes. Todos esos titulos y subtitulos apareciendo arbitrariamente, los ironicos pensamientos de la "narradora" interrumpiendo constantemente el hilo de la historia para inyectar algo de humor, de detalle y mucha reflexión, y sin lugar a dudas el más bizarro recurso que creo es la identidad de quien narra la historia, hacen de esta novela algo único. La recomiendo ampliamente para cualquiera que busque una historia conmovedora, pero a su vez profunda y reflexiva sobre la naturaleza humana.

it is the best book i read this year. i could not put it away once i started it. it is sad, but with a depth and a richness it is worthwhile reading. i was impressed when i learned that the author was 30 years old. the maturity and depth are quite amazing. i hope he goes on writing books like this.

Este libro me asombró de pies a cabeza. Amé por completo cada punto, cada anexo, cada párrafo, de principio a fin. La historia es sencillamente maravillosa, y no me arrepiento para nada de haberlo leído. Te hace reflexionar, como quizás no has reflexionado antes. Te enseña a valorar la vida, a admirar a los humanos e innumerables valores más. Es un libro recomendado para todas las edades, porque el texto llega al corazón, de una manera u otra. He leído este libro decenas de veces, y puedo decir que aún siento el mismo escalofrío al leerlo. Este libro es mi tesoro.

This book should be a must reading for a great number of people. We are forgetting the lessons that we should have learned at the time this book "happens". A value teaching book.

`La ladrona de libros' es una emotiva obra maestra de la literatura que logra introducirnos en tiempos de la II Guerra Mundial y por medio de su excelente trama nos hace identificarnos con sus personajes. Se sufre, se vive, se siente, se llora... en fin, se logra el objetivo de llevarnos al escenario crudo. Un libro muy especial y diferente. Lo recomiendo. También recomiendo otros libros interesantes de otros autores: Resurgir de la esvástica, El (Ebook) [Versión Kindle], El ángel, la luna y la paloma, y El apóstol Pablo
