A loss of physical innocence is shown here, "I can 't see my own arms and legs or know if this is a trap or blessing" She is telling us that she has become physically detached from her body and she is confused as she doesn 't understand if this moment is a "trap of a blessing. " The loss of innocence clearly links up with post-apocalyptic times in The Road to Winter where Finn lost his innocence when he decided whether to kill Ramage or not and him discussing his emotions. The novel has many dangers moments in it and this is shown in the poem as well, "rises up silently like dark bread. " This simile reflects the dangers of the natural world in post-apocalyptic times.

In Elie Wiesel’s Night and Five Finger Death Punch’s “I Apologize”, there is an evident internal conflict about regret connection between the novel and the song.

The day that that beheld Simon’s death,“the air that pushed in from the sea was hot and held no refreshment”(Golding 145).Usually when the air is very humid and leaves a sticky feeling it 's very discomforting.

To begin, it was very frustrating to have the ending of the novel slapped into the beginning and middle of the story at seemingly random moments. There was no suspense built in the novel, Zusak demolished that when he writes to the reader, through Death, exactly how the book, or this specific character’s life, is going to end. Near the end of the book, just after Liesel has had a relatively normal day Death begins a chapter, titled “The End of the World (Part I)” that describes the immediate events after Himmel Street was bombed. These pieces of writing disrupt the flow of the novel in a startling tone. Death’s lack of suspense while narrating The Book Thief is incredibly unfortunate for the impactful novel.
