The Nazi burning of books in the story represents evil incarnate. It is at his funeral where she sees a dropped book and takes it. During his stay at the Hubermanns' house, Max befriends Liesel, because of their shared affinity for words. Rudy throws the journal into the river to keep it from Franz. To reveal that the story is told by Death himself may well conjure up images of Terry Pratchett's Death, in the Discworld novels, or even seem distasteful or wholly inappropriate considering the subject matter.

Readers are introduced to this Death-as-storyteller concept in a too-long invocation that begins "The Book Thief. They must leave Max behind. From her bedroom to the bomb shelter down the The Book Thief book, reading helps her commune with the living and the dead — and finally, it is the mere existence of The Book Thief book that proves to be her salvation.

On the way home from school, Liesel believes she has seen Max in a line of Jews being forcibly marched through town, and she begins screaming his name, running through the line. As the basement became colder with the onset of winter, Max becomes very ill. Meanwhile, Liesel, because she is angry with the mayor's wife for taking away Rosa's clothes washing job, returns the book given to her by the mayor's wife.

Death sees the colours around him before he sees anything else. It was something he didn't want The Book Thief book feel, but nonetheless, he felt it with such gusto it made him want to throw up. She is taken away by air raid officers, and it is at this moment that Death finds and takes her book, The Book Thief.

The neighbor's house is chosen for the shelter. With his gentle demeanor and his accordion playing, Hans gains Liesel's trust as she grows close to him and comes to associate his presence with safety. To the reader, Death insists that it "most definitely can be cheerful", even affable, but also relates that it most certainly cannot be nice.

During Liesel's early days with the Hubermanns, she has nightmares and Hans sits with her through the night. Because Death narrates and explains the reasons behind each character's destruction, as well as explains how he feels that he must take the life of each character, Death is given a sense of care rather than fear.

Liesel sees one book that survives the fire and hides it under her shirt. Death then begins the story. Hans then receives a telegram that he has been conscripted into the army and must leave immediately. It gives a unique and compassionate voice to a narrator who can comment on human's inhumanity to human without being ponderous, "worthy" or even quite understanding us at times.

Liesel begs him to wake up, and kisses him on the lips as a goodbye. Liesel passes out, and one of the soldiers carries her to a stretcher. It's one thing to write a long book about, say, a boy who happens across a dragon's egg; it's quite another to write a long, achingly sad, intricately structured book about Nazi Germany narrated by Death itself.

She entered depression after the death of her only son in the Great War. Hans is a gentle man who brings her comfort and helps her learn to read, starting with a book Liesel took from the cemetery where her brother was buried. In it, Max describes a girl who is able to use words like some of Hitler's most skilled word shakers, but she uses her words to help her friend and remove small bits of hate from a forest dominated by cruelty.The book thief arrived perhaps thirty seconds later.

Years had passed, but I recognized her. She was panting.

It's a steal

From the toolbox, the boy took out, of all things, a teddy bear. He reached in through the torn windshield and placed it on the pilot's chest. The smiling bear sat huddled among the crowded wreckage of the man and the blood.
