17 - The Book Thief by Markus Zusak - Crafting Compelling Narrators.

This historical World War II novel by Australian author Markus Zusak has compelling characters, an engaging plot, and wonderful writing. But it's biggest strength is the narrator: the personification of Death. In this episode, I use The Book Thief to break down the key qualities of a compelling narrator.
