Has anyone else found it absolutely impossible to find a copy of this book anywhere ever in any library in the world? Because I am having a lot of trouble.
Yes, especially in English. I found a lot of books in German from Germany, but had to go to an Australian site and buy myself a copy. The book is out of print; I think it has to do with the fact that Markus Zusak's books are being published by a different publisher--Random House, I think--rather than Scholastic Australia.
I've seen it in Australian library catalogs, too.
Yes! I spent soooo much time looking for this book, but then I found it on German ebay! Lucky I speak German so I got the book in German, and then I'll read the other ones in English :)
