Movie to Book: Movie Trailer-The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
The Book Thief is one of the most captivating books I've ever read. I am super psyched that it's a movie, but haven't had a chances to see it yet (it's no playing in Ouachita Parish right now). I have posted the movie trailer below the review/summary from Goodreads.com. As always, I HIGHLY HIGHLY encourage ya'll to read the book before you watch the movie. If you live in Ouachita Parish and want to place it on hold call me, Clair at 318-327-5414.
The extraordinary #1 New York Times bestseller that will be in movie theaters on November 15, 2013, Markus Zusak's unforgettable story is about the ability of books to feed the soul.
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.
In superbly crafted writing that burns with intensity, award-winning author Markus Zusak, author of I Am the Messenger, has given us one of the most enduring stories of our time.
