The Book Thief, Markus Zusak: The book is narrated by death, so right away you know it’s going to make you think about the time we have on Earth. And as you’ll be reminded by reading this, time is precious. I've read this book it's great!
In this quote Death states he is haunted by humans. Death is haunted by the memory of humans. He is mostly haunted my Liesel's memory. Death is effected by human deaths and cannot shake them. This quote is important because Death shows his feelings.
