I am now reading


The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

I am enjoying it. The story is great. Death bugs me. He is the narrator and I cannot tell if he is supposed to bug me. Are his weird use of verbs and his incessent foreshadowing just a quirks of death's character or what? They do pain me. But I love Liesel and Rudy and Rosa and Hans. I already feel as if I know what will happen with them because Death has told me. Of course Death should know this and I sort of like how time weaves around with him. But I feel as if he's toying with me. I will finish it. I have to keep pushing, someone else waits for me to return this book.

As Always (hmm),
