It's late. I'll post more stuff, possibly better...
I feel empty.
I had dinner with two men from Italy tonight.
6) Who was your favorite character?
(This is four days late, but whatever.) I really liked Hans. His character was well established and I always found myself “relaxed” when the story focused on him. (I didn’t have to worry about Liesel’s feelings being hurt or anything like that.) He also had a warm personality and I enjoyed the time that was spent to describe him. I cried the most because of him. ...
5) What was your favorite quote from the book?
I forget the direct quote, but it was the one about the clouds. *Spoiler* During Max’s illness, Liesel and Hans were walking downtown from various odd jobs, and they noticed a huge cloud ambling across the countryside. And the observation that was made was: It was a huge, white monster with a grey heart. I honestly don’t know I like that quote so much… Hm.

2) Would you recommend it to a friend? Why?
(Let’s all pretend I started this challenge yesterday and this is the post for today.) YES! Anyone with eyes or ears or both who can understand a language should read this! (Or have it read to them.) This is one of the most beautifully written books I had ever read. Not only that, but the story was very creative. Plus, when I carried it around with me, people said “The Book Thief?...
1) Why did you read this book? i.e. was it...
Earlier this year my mother found a lovely list of “100 Classics to read before you die” and this led me to hours of scouring the internet for more book lists. (I love books, but I find it hard to sit down with one and just read.) Anyways, as summer progressed, I found a wonderful book list that included “modern literature”. I found this list on Teenreads.com, and began my...
