這是一個關於文字如何餵養人類靈魂的獨特故事, 一個撼動死神的故事。
死神首度以豐富的感情,為讀者講述一個孤單的小女孩, 如何藉由閱讀的力量,度過人生最艱困的時期。
9歲小女孩莉賽爾和弟弟在戰亂中被迫送到寄養家庭,但弟弟不幸死在旅途中,莉賽爾在弟弟冷清的喪禮後偷了一本掘墓工人的手冊,為的是要紀念自己永遠失去的家庭。寄養家庭位在慕尼黑凋蔽貧困的區域,大人彼此仇恨咒罵,老師狠毒無情,戰火時時威脅人命。莉賽爾每晚抱著掘墓工人手冊入睡,惡夢不斷。養父為了讓她安眠,於是為她朗誦手冊內容,並開始教她識字。
學會認字進而開始讀書的莉賽爾,儘管生活艱苦,吃不飽穿不暖,卻發現了一項比食物更讓她難以抗拒的東西--書,她忍不住開始偷書,用偷來的書繼續學習認字。從此莉賽爾進入了文字的奇妙世界,讓她熬過了現實的苦難,也不可思議地幫助了周圍同樣承受苦難的人:讀書給躲在養父家地下室的猶太人聽,在空襲時為躲入防空洞中的街坊鄰居朗讀故事,安慰了每顆惶惶不安的心,潛移默化改變了原本粗鄙的性情。
對照著戰場上萬人之間的爭奪殘殺,莉賽爾藉由閱讀與文字所散發的力量,讓死神驚訝地睜大了眼睛,一面收取戰場上的靈魂,一面思索人性的深奧:為什麼人類一面展現殘酷的殺戮,一面又有發自內心的關愛呢?
多年以後,死神前去迎接莉賽爾的靈魂。死神坐在喧囂的大馬路旁,忍不住感嘆道:「人哪!人性縈繞我的心頭不去!人性怎能同時間如此光明,又如此邪惡!」
It’s just a small story really, about among other things: a girl, some words, an accordionist, some fanatical Germans, a Jewish fist-fighter, and quite a lot of thievery. . . .
Set during World War II in Germany, Markus Zusak’s groundbreaking new novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, a foster girl living outside of Munich. Liesel scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist-books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement before he is marched to Dachau.
This is an unforgettable story about the ability of books to feed the soul.
