Theater Thursday: The Book Thief

This preview looks so good!  Seriously, it looks amazing.  I just hope the movie lives up to all the promise.  Check it out below.

Now, if you haven't read the book.   Here's a quick summary.  You really should pick it up.   I especially liked the intro by death.  It's such an interesting/excellent way to start a book.

It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still.

Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement. 

In superbly crafted writing that burns with intensity, award-winning author Markus Zusak, author of I Am the Messenger,
 has given us one of the most enduring stories of our time.  Quoted from Goodreads
