Right now I'm reading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I wasn't sold on it right away - it'a about a family during WWII, not really my thing. But get this, its narrated by Death. The moment I heard that, I had already taken out my money and bought it.
It's an interesting book, whereby the story is given out in little threads, and sometimes not in the correct order. Altogether though, I think it will end with a beautiful rug - or carpet - or whatever analogy you want to use.
When I've finished it I'll write up a review.
