Why I Can't Finish The Book Thief: Excuse Haiku


I know, it's awesome.
But so sad! So bleak! So LONG!
Death, here is thy sting.


The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak. Knopf, 2006, 552 pages.

See, this is what I was afraid of, and why I haven't even picked it up yet.

I think I'll have to read "An Abundance of Katherines" first. And several other cheerier-looking books.

Yay, Katherines! Loved it.

I did find The Book Thief impressive, though. But not necessarily un-put-downable.

I finished it -- finally. Great book, worth making it to the end, but whn you put it down, kind of hard to get back to.
