From a perspective we dont hear of often .. the germans!,
This review is from: The Book Thief [DVD] (DVD)
Saw this at the cinema on Thursday, when I heard death speak I thought "oh no, this is going to be boring" but it gripped me from when Lisle meets her new father! We thought we had it tough during the war, I had no idea it was THIS tough for the poorer german families, and this scary. It was shocking to see the school choir singing about how the Jews were ruining Germany, hearing Lisle's new mother announce that if they had to feed Max then they would have to reduce to 2 meals a day only.
A well told story, not sure if I will read the book - even though it gets rave reviews
