The Book Thief (movie)

I did watch The Book Thief yesterday. It is based on the book by Markus Zusak. I read it last week. I loved the book. The movie has Roger Allam, Sophie Nélisse, Heike Makatsch, Julian Lehmann, Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson, and Nico Liersch.

Warning: one very sad part, and some violence.

There were some differences between the book and the movie. Liesel’s receives two books from Max in the book. The first one wasn’t a journal. The story of her life was called The Book Thief in the book. Death finds it and gives it back to her at the end. And there were some other small differences.

Even though there were differences, it was a great movie just like the book. Next week I’m watching The Silver Linings Playbook. I will finish listening to the book today.

The Book Thief

I finished listening to The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. There is a movie based on the book which I’m watching on Monday.

Big Warning: there are some sad parts and some violence.

Before I begin the summary, I should say with this book I’m reading out of comfort zone. I hardly read books about war. At first, I didn’t think I would like the book, but I ended up loving this book. I did cry toward the end of the book.

Anyway, The Book Thief is about a book thief. lol  I believe if I lived in that time I would have been a book thief too. Death narrates the story. I didn’t think Death had a heart for people, but he does in this book. This book is set in Nazi Germany. The book thief is a girl named Liesel. Her mother is taking her and her brother to safety in the arms of another family. Her brother though dies on the train on the journey. Liesel can’t read or write, but she steals a book in hopes to someday read it. Her adopted father ends up teaching her to read. She does read that book and other books she steals.

Like I said, I loved this book. Next, I’m going to listen to The Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick.
