The Power of Words

I think this goes with Liesel stealing books because she undertands truely the power of words. I think words can be insanely powerful as long as you know how to use them right. Just like from the story Adolf Hitler slowly started giving people ideas and changing their minds about stuff using words and those words turned into forests. I think what gives words their power is the people using them and the people that are being told them. I think Max is giving is giving Liesl a lesson so she dosen’t fall for all the words that she is being told.

You’ve Got a Friend in Rudy

Death already gave it away that Rudy Steiner is going to die we all just don’t know when. I think the reason why the author made Rudy do all these things is because his end is coming and he isn’t gonna live a very long life. I guess I don’t care alot about this character. One of the things I like about Rudy Steiner is how Loyal he is to his friends. One thing I don’t like about Rudy is how he is always trying to get a kiss from Liesel it’s getting pretty annoying. I think in the future Liesel is going to realize she loves Rudy but it’s going to be to late.

A little light in the darkness

When I get mad or when i’m in a tight spot I try do do something pretty much anything to get my mind off of it. One of the things I personally do when I’m in a tight spot is play sports because when I play sports it helps me clear my head and get focused and helps me forget about my troubles for a short time. If I’m because of my sports I usually turn to my family for help but if I’m mad at my family I usually like to sleep or try to forget about it and move on.

Secret Secrets Are No Fun; Secret Secrets Hurt Someone

I think the biggest affect of keeping all the secrets that Liesel is keeping is going to break her mentally. I also think it’s going to take a huge tole on Liesel and that it well start weighing her down with every new secret she has to keep.  I think that keeping the secrets that Liesel is keeping is okay and not okay at the same time. One reason why i think its not okay is because she’s keeping it from her foster parents but if she does tell them she could be in a lot of trouble. But I think her keeping the secrets is justified because if she dosen’t it won’t just affect her but affect her family, friends and people she knows. And it will especially affect Max because if people find out that he’s in their basement he’ll probably get killed.

Max Abandoned His Family

Max abandoned his family, His family died as he survived. I think it was right for Max to leave his family because you can’t help anyone if your dead. I think it was right for Mac to save himself because, it’s better for one person to survive than none. I can also see how it was wrong because he was leaving his family behind and he wouldn’t see them ever again. But I still don’t think he should have stayed with them because at that point they were all waiting for death or waiting to be caught by the Nazi’s.

On Stealing

Ono of the many times that Lisel has stole something was when her and Rudy stole food from the kid on the bicycle. I think when they made him slip on the ice on his bicycle, that it was cruel and violent. I think that they’re doing all of the stealing either because they’re hungry or that they see something they want. It’s kind of justified because she’s hungry and trying to get food. But yet again when is stealing ever good. Some of he consequences that have come from her stealing so far was when she got caught stealing the book from the fire. I think some of the consequences that might happen in the future are maybe getting jail time or a punishment.

Are Books Dangerous?

I think the reason why the Nazi party thought that books were bad was because it would give the people a different idea, from what the Nazi party was doing. and that they might rebel. books can be dangerous if you throw it hard enough. but Books can also be dangerous mentally because it can change someones point of view on something. I think that books can be dangerous to about everybody. liberating is like releasing i think that books can release someone from their situations. Personally I think that books can be liberating because it can show people a different way.

 

The Book Thief……so far

After you we got passed most of the depressing parts of the book thief I started to like the book even more than I did before. Some of the things I personally really liked about the book so far is the characters. Another thing I really liked was how they put death as the narrator. I expect that something really big is going to happened soon in the book or that Liesl the main character is going to become a thief and steal a lot of stuff. I have not read the book thief before it is my first time. I have really enjoyed reading all the character development. I personally think the book thief is a good book.Image result for the book thief

What Would It Be Like?

Leisel Meminger’s life is very depressing for many different things. like wise losing her brother at a very early age. Also after losing your brother you have to say good bye to your mother and go stay with some random people. If i was in her shoes i would be beyond depressed and I would probably cry myself to sleep at night. It would be devastating to lose all the stuff she lost. It would probably tear and break the kid from the inside. I think she would survive by not looking back at her past and just to keep moving forward in life. I can’t even try to imagine all the stuff she went threw.

What I look for in a good character

Some of the things that I look for in a good character are, character development, and Also I like his life before all the action and important stuff happened. Another thing I look for in a good character is how relate able he or she is. One of the protagonist I cared about the most was Cole Randolph in the five kingdoms series because he was relate able and he tried to save his friends and failed. I think the author made the character really relate able and that was the reason why he was a good character in the book.
