The Feeling of a Good Book....
Leisel is a wonderful character. I fell in love with Rudy and Papa. Yes, I even think I enjoyed Mama too. I don't think the book would have that flair without her. I could easily envision Himmel Street and the characters. Max's story is great. I don't want to spoil the book for any who want to read it so I won't go too deep into what happens. I can certainly tell you it is a truly fantastic book and I highly recommend.
This book left me wanting to take time to mull it over in my head and think about it, relish it before starting my next book. That doesn't happen with me! Usually, I finish a book and then I move on to something almost immediately. I'm not ready to move on from this beautifully told story. I want to stay, linger- enjoying each moment- reliving the story as I remember- like Death did with his copy of "The Book Thief". Yes, Death is the narrator of this fantastic story and a great one at that.
I hear there is a movie in the making. There is little chance the movie will be as good as the book. Isn't that usually the case?
