The first book I pick up after a 2 years or so of watching anime and gaming, I finally get back to something I enjoyed doing in the past and surprisingly, I still enjoy it now and that is reading.
A book that was made known to me by its movie adaption by the same name. Although I wouldn’t say that the movie is all that bad, but after reading the novel, I notice that some of the important point have been truncated. While this is not something unexpected, it’s still a letdown whenever a movie strayed away from its original content. Well, sometimes it for the better so as not to split the movie into 2 or more movies. I’m looking at you Hobbit.
So let’s begin. It’s a novel where Death act out as the narrator for the entirety of the books who seems to be overly attached to a little girl, Liesel Meminger, who’s also the protagonist for both the book and the movie. Set in Nazi Germany, Liesel have to survive under a foul-mouthed foster Mother, Rosa Hubermann, whose colourful language was used as an insult and as an act of loved, and her husband, Hans Hubermann, who act as a loving father, teacher for Liesel, Jews lover by the resident and to Death, he was known as the guy who escape death twice.
This is a book for people who enjoy slice of life genre as the whole book is just about the daily life of Liesel and her thieving adventure that betrayed the name of the novel as book weren’t the only thing she stole.
Summarizing everything, I just make the book look lame when in fact, I wasn’t able to put it down when I was reading it cause it’s just so damn good.
I would rate it a 4.5/5 for reason I would prefer not to state as it’ll be consider as a minor spoiler. So read the book, filthy casual.
