The Book Thief

Take a little cyber flight and catch Still a Dreamer’s thoughts on The Book Thief.

Still A Dreamer

thebookthief It is not very often in my experience that you find a book and the movie made from it both outstanding, but in the case of The Book Thief  by Markus Zusak, I do. I just finished reading it for the second time … my first a couple years ago, but after seeing the film, I dove back in and read it again, and enjoyed it even more.

The Book Thief is promoted as a YA novel, but it cannot help but reach the heart of any reading adult. Told over a period of about 5 years, the story takes place in Germany during Hitler’s rise to power. The heroine, Liesel, is being surrendered, along with her brother, to another family to foster as the mother cannot afford their care. The sickly brother passes away on the train ride to Molching, is buried in a patch of snowy land alongside…

      Hello Cindy :). Well I’ll vouch for the movie being well worth watching–then again I think that about everything Emma Watson performs in. Seriously, it is a very good film. And clearly still a dreamer gives the book two thumbs up, so get your hands on a copy one way or another. Please share your thoughts accordingly after reading.

      Stacked? O! Hey Charles, nice to know you’ve got books lined up like the rest of us. Since you’ve already got a copy then I hope you will report back after you crack the cover and commence exploring. Hint, hint. 🙂

    Thanks for the re-post! I hope more people than those visiting my blog get the opportunity to check out this tabu book and movie through you.

      Well, hey, mission accomplished –Cindy has now discovered the book and slpmartin might be encouraged to dig his copy out one of his stacks. Hopefully some more folks will venture to your blogcasa for some further investigations of your online abode. 🙂
      Btw, can you ‘see’ the music videos to the left <<— or are they obscured by random advertisements?

    On this post, they came through – took a little while, but started out as black boxes, no content.
    BTW, after seeing The Book Thief, I moved The Boy in the Striped Pajamas to the head of my movie queue …. very different take on it all. After The Book Theif, I knew most anything would pale, but this stays with you in a different way, and imparts the reality of what happened during that time in a chilling ending. Also, today I saw The Monuments Men – don’t miss it, especially as an artist. I’ll try and do a post over the next couple days on it.

      O! Why thank you for the movie suggestions. Looking forward to your review of The Monuments Men.
      I have discovered that the videos do take some time to load up–and it depends on sort of media players are at work. But, if you can view YouTube offerings then they ought to show up eventually. I think. But I can think all I like and I’m still NO geek. LOL.
