He enjoys noticing colors particularly in the sky and he is mystified by the contradictory nature of humans. I find the character of death very appealing as he provides humorous, informative dark asides throughout the story. He also works to correct human’s perception of him that he does have a heart. Liesel:She is a nine year old German girl who has blonde hair and dark brown eyes. She is adopted by the Hubbermans .She has a great thirst for knowledge and she finds comfort in them. Reading makes leisel experience the bigger world. Max Vandernberg : is the 23 year old Jewish fist fighter who hides from the Nazis in the Hubbermans house . Max is also an artist and writer, and he and liesel bond through sharing both their nightmares and their words. Hans Hubberman: is liesel’s foster father. He is an exceptionally tall man who strolls upright and has silver eyes. He is a quiet and delicate man who loves liesel and is leisel’s guardian angel. Rosa Hubberman: is liesel’s foster mother and is a squat lady with a harsh façade .She is a complex character, a conundrum because although she appears cold and harsh death tells us that she actually has a very big heart.

DID THE STORY HAVE A MORAL? I learnt from this story that even in the heart of tragedy goodness still prevails. This is shown through Hans decision to let Max stay in their basement to hide from the Nazis, despite the dire consequences that would occur if Max had been discovered. WOULD I RECOMMEND IT? I would definitely recommend the book thief. The story is told from an interesting perspective. It Is a heartfelt and beautifully narrated story.
