Film vs. Novel: The Book Thief

Screen Shot 2014-01-15 at 11.30.02 am copy


It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still.

Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement.

I think there can only be one word that describes this movie: beautiful. I was worried at how well the movie could portray the amazing novel but I think it was done very well.

Watch here for the rest of the review.
