Liesel And Death In 'The Book Thief'

101 Words1 Page
The Book Thief is narrated in first person from the perspectives of both Liesel and Death. Liesel is somewhat opinionated and biased in her views because she is human and has firsthand experience with many of the books major events. Death is unbiased because it is a personification and not human. Death appears to be older and more mature then Liesel, but has no emotion. The author gives both perspectives because he wants the reader to experience events from a realist and biased point of view. Readers can form their own opinions off of the experiences the views of both characters.
