“The Book Thief” is a long but wonderful movie. The story is from a novel by Australian author, Markus Zusak.

Its main character is a ten-year-old girl named Leisel who  grows up loving books in Nazi Germany.  As the Nazis destroy and burn books, she finds ways to steal a few back.

In the story, some characters survive, and some don’t. But, the movie is artistically done and ends on an up note.

I highly recommend it.


Carol (May ‘14) adds, “It’s also a love story.”
