Current Book...

I have just finished reading The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon and it was such a great experience. Thanks to the DesiWonderWoman for recommending it.

Currently reading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak and I amhalfway in and I am already blown away; I wish I had time to just sit down for a few hours and read it all in one go because it's that amazing.  I had already finished the book by the time I uploaded this post and had forgotten to edit it.
The book is different because at the start we already know that the protagonist is dead and her story  is being narrated to us by "death" as He was so touched by her life. The story is set in Nazi Germany and how various books (that the girl steals; thence the book thief) form different parts of the girl's story, A brilliant experience.
Definitely one of the best books I have ever read. If you like reading then this is a must read book. 
There's also a movie based on the book coming out soon (out in America already I think), but having seen the trailer I don't think it compares to the book as in the trailer the protagonist is the narrator which is really weird because one of the main things that makes the book so different is that "death" is narrating her story to us with his own sense of humour.
