I think The Book Thief was a great book despite all the swearing and the sadness. The swearing adds realism to the book, a nice touch. What did we expect? Them to be singing I am a Child of God? No. There is always a light in something or someone, even if you can’t see it, it’s there. The Book Thief was worth all of the darkness because of the result: a light, a spark, satisfaction. The positive outweighs the negative by a lot. Most of the darkness, or, all of it, goes to the movie. Are we gonna think of The Book Thief as a cry fest? Why not find some positive things about the book?
