THE BOOK THIEF.
Everyone in my book group loved this book except me. It made me very uneasy to see the case being made that Germans suffered nearly as much as their enemies during the war. How can I pity a people mostly responsible for two world wars. Get over yourselves.
It made me very uneasy to have sympathy extracted from me. And I also disliked the idea of death having a voice and trying to gain sympathy for doing nefarious deeds. This was a squirmy book for me.
What about you? What did you expect to like?
