I just watched the movie, and i was wondering if someone could answer this question. The scene where Max goes outside (because everyone is hiding from the bombings) and he is just appreciating the night sky. Is that scene in the book?

Louisa In the book, he just looks out the window and he only admits to doing so once Liesel, Hans and Rosa return from the bomb shelter, so we don't get to see him actually walk out of the basement in the book.

There are many scenes left out and added into the movie.

I hope this helped.
