  • "Erase una vez un mundo donde las noches eran largas y la Muerte contaba su propia historia. erase una vez una ladrona que robaba libros y regalaba palabras. En el pueblo vivia una nina que queria leer, un hombre que tocaba el acordeon y un joven judio que escribia cuentos hermosos para escapar del horror de la guerra. Al cabo de un tiempo, la nina se convirtio en una ladrona que robaba libros y regalaba palabras. Y con esas palabras se escribio una historia hermosa y cruel. Una novela tremendamente humana, emocionante e inolvidable, que describe las peripecias de una nina alemana de nueve anos desde que es dada en adopcion por su madre hasta el final de la II Guerra Mundial. Su nueva familia, gente sencilla y nada afecta al nazismo, le ensena a leer y, a traves de los libros, a distraerse durante los bombardeos y combatir la tristeza. Pero es el libro que ella misma esta escribiendo el que finalmente le salvara la vida."

  • "When nine-year-old Liesel arrives outside the box-like house of her new foster parents, she refuses to get out of the car. Liesel has been separated from her parents - 'Kommunists' - for ever. In the care of the Hubermans, Liesel befriends Rudy Steiner and together they steal books - from Nazi book burning piles, from the mayor's library and from the rich people. In time, the family hide a Jewish boxer, Max, who reads with Liesel in the basement. By 1943, the Allied bombs are falling, and the sirens begin to wail. Liesel shares out her books in the airraid shelters. But one day the wail of the sirens comes too late..."
  • "Sit back and enjoy the story - there's a complete, unabridged audio recording embedded within each chapter of this premium ebook. Read by the talented Allan Corduner, this audio narration, described by The Times as having "the haunting quality of poetry", brings new depth and tone to the book's compelling story. As this premium ebook contains two books in one, it has a file size of nearly 496MB, considerably more than a regular ebook. It can only be downloaded via a broadband connection and enjoyed using Adobe℗ʼ Digital Editions on your Mac or PC. It is not compatible with the Sony Reader or other dedicated device. It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still. By her brother's graveside, Liesel Meminger's life is changed when she picks up a single object, partially hidden in the snow. It is The Gravedigger's Handbook, left there by accident, and it is her first act of book thievery. So begins a love affair with books and words, as Liesel, with the help of her foster father, learns to read. Soon she is stealing books from Nazi book-burnings, the mayor's wife's library, wherever there are books to be found. But these are dangerous times. When Liesel's foster family hides a Jew in their basement, Liesel's world is both opened up, and closed down. The Book Thief is a story about the power of words and the ability of books to feed the soul. In superbly crafted writing that burns with intensity, award-winning author Markus Zusak has given us one of the most enduring stories of our time."@en
