The Book Thief is an emotionally complex novel that follows Death, the surprisingly friendly and warm narrator, through the second world war. Death is a crucial theme in this novel, something that is controversial for literary critics. The question remains whether or not adolescents should be exposed to the raw, harsh reality of war and the grief that results from it. If you are a collector of banned books, this is one you want on your library shelf.
