How many a man has dated a new era in his life from reading a book?” ~Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)
I find it hard to imagine not having a wealth of books at my dispose – what with bookstores, libraries, internet ordering and now instantaneous delivery of digital publications. But, in Germany during the World War II era (1930’s) this scenario was reality. In fact, the best of books were burned. And if you were a poor young girl, getting your hands on books to read was even more difficult.
This is the premise of the story in the film “The Book Thief.” Despite the fact that the film adaptation of Markus Zusak ‘s novel of the same name has been getting mixed reviews, it sounds like a fulfilling cinema production to me. I am putting this movie on my “MOVIES TO SEE” list. It is beginning to make its debut in select theatres this month.
