This month, my book club read The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, a book I have been meaning to read for-ev-errrrr. Basically, we all really enjoyed it — you can read about our discussion (I had to miss it due to bronchitis boooo) on Tara’s blog.
Earlier this week, a few of us girls went to see the movie…
Have you seen the trailer?
I have to say that I loved it. I loved the book, too — its message, Papa, Rudy, EVERYTHING — and the movie was pretty true to the story, so I was happy. My only critique is that the actors looks a little too healthy and clean, but it’s a movie so what are you going to do?
Let me know if you saw it and what you thought? Or if you’ve read the book! I HIGHLY recommend it.
About The Book Thief
An international bestselling book, The Book Thief tells the story of an extraordinary, spirited young girl sent to live with a foster family in WWII Germany. Intrigued by the only book she brought with her, she begins collecting books as she finds them. With the help of her new parents and a secret guest under the stairs, she learns to read and creates a magical world that inspires them all.
The film adaption was released Nov. 15 starring Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson and Sophie Nélisse. Directed by Brian Percival, the Emmy-winning director of Downton Abbey.
