The Book Thief

Favorite CharacterMy favorite character is Hans Hubermann because of his integrity and strength. He didn't support the Nazi system and still continued to help Jews even though he endangered himself and his family. I value and appreciate people who stand for what they believe in no matter what the people around them are doing. I loved how he approached Leisel when she first came to his home. He made her feel safe and was kind and gentle towards her.

The Book Thief is about a young girl named Leisel who is put in a foster home with the Hubermann's. She begigns the story by stealing one book but she cannot read or write. The story starts right on the brink of World War 2. Leisel is taught to read and wirte adn she develops special relationships that help her stand for what she believes in and have the courage to do many things. The story has a tragic but special ending that shapes the characters and reader.

SettingThe Book Thief is set in Germany during world War 2. The main characters live in the poor part of town and do not have very much money.

The theme of The Book Thief is love, courage, and hardship. Love because the characters had to have love for what they did for others. Courage for the love they showed. And hardship for the courage they developed.


My ReactionI think this a very inspiring and educational book. I like to be able to understand how people were probably feeling during certain times in history, especially World War 2. I reccomend this book for anyone who has a desire to understand how the people during that awful time in history felt.
