The Book Thief Soundtrack

This is a collection of music I recorded as a “soundtrack” to The Book Thief. I’m entering this into the insideadog’s “Creative Reading Prize” competition to hopefully win at least a tshirt. It’s incomplete (at time of writing), but as soon as I record the tracks, I’ll upload them here. Just like a soundtrack to a film, the tracks here “correspond” to certain aspects or events in the story. All of the track names have been taken from the book, using Zusak’s own language. The tracks consist of piano music (me playing obviously) and recorded spoken word quotes from the book. Special thanks to Sarah Carles for helping me find all the quotes.
