The Book Thief

advertisement
By : Markus
Zusak
“She leaned down and looked at his lifeless face and
Liesel kissed her best friend, Rudy Steiner, soft and
true on his lips. He tasted dusty and sweet. He tasted
like the regret in the shadows of trees and in the
glow of the anarchist’s suit collection. She kissed
him long and soft, and when she pulled herself away,
she touched his mouth with her fingers. Her hands
were trembling, her lips were fleshy, and she leaned
in once more, this time losing control and misjudging
it. Their teeth collided on the demolished world of
Himmel Street.” pg. 536
The meaning of this quote is the regret that Liesel for
not realizing she was in love with her best friend
earlier.
“Upon her arrival, you could still see the bite
marks of snow on her hands and the frosty
blood on her fingers. Everything about her
was undernourished. Wirelike shins. Coat
hanger arms. She did not produce it easily,
but when it came, she had a starving smile.”
pg.31
The personification in this quote is that you
could still see the bite marks of snow on her
hands.
 “He
was the crazy one who had painted
himself black and defeated the world. She
was the book thief without the words. Trust
me, though, the words were on their way,
and when they arrived, Liesel would hold
them in her hands like the clouds, and she
would wring them out like rain.” pg.80
 “…
it was raining on Himmel Street when the
world ended for Liesel Meminger. The sky
was dripping. Like a tap that a child has tried
its hardest to turn off but hasn’t quite
managed.” pg.497
 The
mood of the book is dark and sad.
Sometimes there are parts that make you
laugh, but other than that it’s mostly sad.
 The
most important theme of the book is
abandonment. Liesel feels like she was
abandoned by her mother and brother when
she was put up for adoption and her brother
died on the way there. She ends up having
dreams about her brother dying and her
mother doing nothing.
A
symbol is the accordion, it gives Liesel
hope and comfort that things will get better.
When Liesel would read her book in the attic
she felt that she was giving him what he
gives her when he plays the accordion.
 The
tone just like the mood is very dark and
sometimes different to understand. With
Death being the narrorator of the book you
really see how the book kind of has some
secrets of its own.
 The
last time I saw her was red. The sky was
like soup, boiling and stirring. In some
places, it was burned. There were black
crumbs, and pepper, streaked across the
redness. Pg.12
 The personification of this quote is talking
about the way the sky looked when Werner
died.
