The two little words didn't physically defeat him but it stuck with him and they “ were buried like two daggers in his gut “ ( page 19 of Two Words ). That kind of intellectual power can haunt a person for the rest of their life and posses someone, just like it did to the Colonel.

It is also when Liesel steals her first book, which will be one of the main themes of the film. I enjoyed the film because I was fascinated with the characters and how they found strength, courage and friendship in difficult circumstances. I also found this film to be very powerful and thought provoking, as it challenged our pre-conceptions of Germany during World War II, Death and on humanity itself. When Liesel reaches Molching, she feels lonely and misses her
Quiñano, Julianne Grace D. November 13, 2015 BSP 201A Literature 1 Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing (Proverbs 12:18). This passage from the Holy Bible is never wrong because ever since God created the universe and until know, all human beings have already experienced being hurt with the words that were thrown to us. Words are powerful that it can cause big changes in anyone’s life. As I read the bestselling novel of Markus Zusak entitled The Book Thief, aside from realizing how powerful words are, I realized also that being an author of a book is strenuous. It requires creativity, lots of courage, perseverance and of course experiences.

Even though she had helping hands from the white rose and others such as the professor who helped her open people's minds, Sophie Scholl who was never afraid to share her opinion and not only looked at things as they were written on the piece of paper word after word but read between the lines and always filled the spaces between words with what people left out fearing death ,writing about fighting for a democracy. Sophie knew Hitler was intelligent and had a mind that did solve the so called "economical and social" problems but her and her resistance group were one of those who actually argued on what was being done to solve such problems.

“Words - so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them.”(“Words Quotes - BrainyQuote”). In the novel The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, words are expressed to change the minds of Hitler’s followers to believe his every word. Words are also used against German citizens if they do not conform to the societal expectations. On the other hand, Liesel has a lust for words and she wishes to use them to positively impact others.
Death, the last figure we see before our grasp on reality slips for the last time, a constant reminder of our mortality. Death is also the first figure we are introduced to and the narrator of The Book Thief. By use of his monologue we learn of his fascination with colors as an escape from his never ending duties as a soul collector. This insight into Death's personality assures us that he is not an emotionless character, but that rather then succumbing to the sad and sometime horrific scenes of his victims he must find ways of enduring them. Through Deaths travels we're brought to another of his fascinations, a small girl and the main protagonist of the story, Liesel Meminger.
‘The Book Thief’ (2013) is a film adapted from a novel written in 2005 by Markus Zusak focussed on a ten year old girl, living in Germany during World War II, the Nazi era, Liesel Meminger. The death of Liesel’s brother left her with foster parents Hans and Rosa Hubermann. Most of the characters in ‘The Book Thief’ are opposed to the Nazi regime such as Liesel, and Max Vandenburg, who is a Jew that the Hubermanns’ are hiding in their basement. Franz Deutscher on the other hand, is the face of the Nazis as he fully supports the regime. These three characters are vital to the film because it portrays different views on the war.
It can be found as being ironic when an author uses death to narrate a book who tells the story of a character's life. Markus Zusak was able to take a rather less desirable aspect of life and turn it into a character, Death, who tells his story as well as the story of the protagonist, Liesel Meminger. His familiarity with Liesel's life enables Death to tell tales of her as a result of his fascination with her. Through the novel, he expresses the hardships that come with his deadly duties, and lastly, the three tragic times where Death encounters "The Book Thief". As she understands the book, she is able to make connections between the book and reality.
