Obviously it must be a lack of intelligence or something because everyone seems to rate this 5 stars. I was look...

    “When death captures me,” the boy vowed, “he will feel my fist on his face.”Personally, I quite like that. Such stupid gallantry.Yes.I like that a lot.A few days ago, when I was starting The Book Thief, my mother stopped by and saw the book on my coffee table. Having just read it...

    THE BOOK THIEF: A Summary. Liesel: Hi, I'm Liesel. I have no personality, but I'm a cute little girl. Death: Her name is not Liesel. Her name is THE BOOK THIEF and I shall name her that for the rest of the book.Liesel: Even though I stole, like, 3 books in total or something. Death: Shut up, Book Th...
