Narrated in the all-knowing matter-of-fact voice of Death, witnessing the story of the citizens of Molching. By 1943, the Allied bombs are falling, and the sirens begin to wail. Liesel shares out her books in the air-raid shelters. But one day, the wail of the sirens comes too late.

Reading Group review. This book was, for the majority of the group, a very good read. Death as the narrator was unusual and was instrumental in much of the storyline. Readers found that perspective of the Second World War from the German viewpoint interesting, especially as it was told from the ordinary person in the street.
