Bridge of Clay
Bridge of Clay is Markus Zusak's followup to The Book Thief, which I enjoyed but didn't love as much as many readers. I will be interested in reading more reviews on Bridge of Clay, because it didn't capture me. Over 100 pages in, I still could not track the characters and just didn't care very much about what was happening. I didn't finish this one.

An unforgettable and sweeping family saga from Markus Zusak, the storyteller who gave us the extraordinary bestseller THE BOOK THIEF, lauded by the New York Times as “the kind of book that can be lifechanging.”
The breathtaking story of five brothers who bring each other up in a world run by their own rules. As the Dunbar boys love and fight and learn to reckon with the adult world, they discover the moving secret behind their father’s disappearance.
At the center of the Dunbar family is Clay, a boy who will build a bridge—for his family, for his past, for greatness, for his sins, for a miracle.
The question is, how far is Clay willing to go? And how much can he overcome?
Written in powerfully inventive language and bursting with heart, BRIDGE OF CLAY is signature Zusak.
