All of them provide some sort of comfort to the people around them, and give them a feeling of security if their lives are falling down like Jenga blocks. Liesel’s reading was able to soothe the shaking souls of the nervous neighbors in the bomb shelter, and the bread giving to the prisoner gave him a feeling of contentment because he knew that someone didn’t believe in the inhumane actions that were taken place. Moreover, when Han works the bellows and presses the keys, it gives Liesel a feeling of safety in her life. Likewise, when Hans leaves for WWII the unexpected from Rosa becomes reality. “It took longer than expected for her eyes to adjust, and when they did, there was no denying the fact that Rosa Hubermann was sitting on the edge of the bed with her husband’s accordion tied to her chest” (Zusak 428/429).
Liesel Meminger, a 10 year old, is afraid of losing her prized possessions such as her family, books, and friends. However, she wasn’t able to do so because of Hitler’s desires. The author did a terrific job helping readers visualize how Hitler, through his far-reaching vision of Germany, which was making it “better”, was able to cause immense destruction for both Germans and Jews through his influences and power. The false propaganda is the main source that enables Hitler to spread his influences regarding how shameful the Jewish people are. Throughout The Book Thief, Hitler’s capabilities are demonstrated through his willingness, dedication, and words.
Mildred’s lust for objects distracts her from the things that should really matter. (STEWE-2) The day before this incident, Montag also asked Mildred whether she could remember where their relationship had started. Mildred responds with: " 'Funny, how funny, not to remember where or when you met your husband or wife... It doesn 't matter '" (Bradbury 40). Mildred does not think of her relationship as being anything worth remembering; She doesn’t care about it.
The Book Thief will give you a new view on world war 2 and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to read a challenging book. As mentioned before it all started with Liesel Meminger(was 14), her mother, and the corpse of her brother. This day would give Liesel nightmares for years, every night. Liesel's brother died of some form of disease. Her brother was berried on the way to Munich, there she stole her first book from a grave digger(Liesel didn't know how to read due to her families poorness).
Mildred hasn’t surrounded herself with loving, understanding people. She lacks the feeling of love, and even though her husband, Montag, cares about her, he is barely home. Her friends don’t even care about themselves because them, too, are emotionally disconnected, and couldn't care less about their miserable lives. Montags feelings are shallow and mediocre, he used to love her, but not the person she has become over time. On page 44, the conversation between Montag and Mildred was very bland, and even though they are communicating, they aren’t really communication.
She hated Hitler and his power. She hated him because he took her mother and her friend Max away. The Book Thief how a dominant culture can use censorship to control how others are seen. By censoring books Hitler stopped questions from arising about his beliefs, and controlled how the Jewish were perceived. The censored book The Shoulder Shrug changed how Liesel saw the world around her, broadening and changing her point of view.
Rosa Hubermann evolves throughout “The Book Thief” and Liesel Meminger recognizes this. Rosa begins to love, care, and cherish her family in the time of great danger. There is a shift in the family's daily routine as they add Max to is, yet Rosa takes it very well. This is a critical turning point in the Hubermann household. She doesn’t scream and she’s not mean, but instead morphs into the mother Liesel wanted her to be.
Markus Zusak’s The Book Thief paints a brilliant picture of a young girl’s life in Hitler’s Germany. Liesel experienced the normal aspects of childhood: friendship, competition, loyalty, mischief. She also, however, encountered numerous ordeals that a child should not have to undergo. Liesel’s story is very unique, but I find it easy to connect with her. In my childhood and in my life now, I have had many experiences similar to those Liesel faced.
He ended up getting found and someone named Captain Beatty, told Montag to just burn the house down room by room and escape that way. Captain Beatty kept nagging Montag about why books were so important and why he wanted to have a stack so bad. Montag, getting mad, flips the switch on his flame thrower and ends up burning Beatty. Once Montag was gone from the city, he tried to be a better person and escape the man he used to be. Montag, at the end, does believe he is a better character and believes he is very different than what he used to be.
"Johann Herman," she said. "Who Is that?" "(145). - Liesel knew it was never polite to ask about a person who was never brought up in the conversation first, but her curiosity got the best of her. She has seen his name in almost all the books she 's opened, and couldn 't help but to wonder who this man was.
