If I had to describe this book in three words, I wouldn't be able to do it. But my top choices would be beautiful, thrilling, saddening, amazing, inspirational, colourful, and the list goes on.
The characters were so developed, so believable and loveable... I nearly cried at the end. (that's usually about as far as it gets for me, most other people might find themselves crying at the end).
The plot was a fickle thing. In the beginning I was wondering where it was going to end up, but hints and spoilers throughout the book itself gave away the ending. Part of me thinks this spoilt the book, but it was bearable considering every other aspect of the book was perfect.
The style of writing was very unique. Sometimes unique things can't quite be pulled off, however Zusak's method of using death as a narrator and in-depth commenting of death's thoughts worked brilliantly.
All in all, an amazing book. Highly commending Zusak's work.
