Lit Like Lanterns
Since I finshed Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom, I decided to reread my favorite book, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. This is my favorite book because I love hearing Death narrate Liesel’s story. This historical fiction book tells a story about a girl living in Germany during World War II. I admire Liesel and her desire to learn how to read, even when most people frowned upon reading. I also respect Liesel for the way she stood up to a boy at school that called her dumb. Just like myself, Liesel is not afraid to say her opinion. Even though I have not reached the end of the book, I look forward to the ending. “ Among them, lit like lanterns, were Hans and Rosa Hubermann, her brother, and the boy whose hair remained the color of lemons forever.” (Zusak pg. 544) I like this quote because it is so descriptive and you can picture what the author wrote. I highly recommend this book because once you read the first page, you will never want to put the book down.
