I think that it was a fun enjoyable class and got to do some fun things. What I didn’t like was that it was a lot of work having to do the word nerds and book reviews even though you had all term it was like is this a common word or not, or is this a good phrase and you were kind of like okay hopefully I did something right in this (at least that’s how I felt) It was also hard having to do those posts in only ten minutes because I was either right on the time limit or I left out a comment because it was hard to write about it then find the right picture and then having to post comments while having to read the whole text because maybe someone isn’t a fast reader and they couldn’t get through their first one. I think I improved a little bit because I was a really good reader before but not good at writing about it but now I got okay. I think that the work load was a little to hard because six word nerds for each book. I liked both the books we read and would read them again.
I think that they did the movie pretty good. They had lots of details that compared to the book and so you could see a lot of those details shoved into a two hour movie. They made have Rudy always trying to get Liesel to kiss him and Rudy doing almost everything with Liesel.
I think that the movie didn’t do to much of it poorly because it had lots of details in it from the books but it added and got rid of some stuff. Like in the bomb shelter in the movie Hans plays his accordion in the bomb shelter while in the book Liesel reads in the bomb shelter and speaking of books and where she would have got them or stole them Liesel only stole one book from the mayors wife and didn’t even steal like at all from anyone and she said she was borrowing in the movie but in the book she always is like I need to steal something and in the movie it left out pretty much everything Rudy and Liesl stole.
What they did alike is lots of stuff like when Max was asleep (when they thought he was going to die) she read to him and talked to him. Also they had her stealing the Shoulder Shrug and the Grave Diggers hand book.
What they didn’t do is lots like when it was Max them thinking he is going to die Liesel stole books to read for him and brought him “Presents” and Liesel played soccer a lot more instead of just the once. Also their was when Max was marching through town like all the other Jews not just him all the sudden showing up at Alex’s shop to see Liesel. The movie also left out the big part when Liesel read to the person who would always spit on the Hubermanns door but she stopped when Liesel started reading to her and gave them her coffee ration and they left out all the times she spit on her door and her just sitting in her chair in her house during the bombing and them trying to get her out of the house to the bomb shelter.
I thought that the movie was really good I could see lots of the details they left out and most of them were the smaller details so you try to see if they would leave them out but overall it was a good movie and I would watch it again
