Winter (winter9) | 4678 comments This is the discussion thread for The Book Thief Prologue and Part 1-2


Taylor C | 454 comments I've had a rough start getting to this book. I completed the prologue a few days ago though. Very interesting structure, and slightly chaotic. Which is definitely my type of book. :)

I agree. I started the book independent from this group read (which I only discovered after I started it), and the structure as well as the narrative are really interesting and original so far. Not sure about Liesl as a main character yet, but the atmosphere is described brilliantly by Markus Zusak.


Reija | 307 comments When the film released some time ago I read reviews and thought this is kind of weird idea and didn't bother to check it at all. And now I'm currently reading this and my friends reviewed this four and five stars and I don't know what to think. High hopes but so far not too interesting.

I struggled too. The content was interesting though so I kept going.


Reija | 307 comments Yeah, I still wanna know where is this all fuss about.


Haley (haleymadd) | 19 comments I watched the movie about 2 years ago and had the book since forever, but this convinced me to give it a go. The prologue was longish for me, but as I got more into the book and understood everything that was happening it caught my attention. I just wish the beginning had more of an exciting approach.

I can agree with that. It just left me feeling... blah and sad. Which I know it's not suppose to be the happiest of books. I dunno, I'm still having trouble wrapping my brain around this book.

Winter (winter9) | 4678 comments So this didn't go well to say the least.. I started and got wrapped up in the series I read completely leaving The Book Thief sadly unread on my kindle. I guess this time wasn't the time either :/ I wonder what it is that makes me start this book a thousand times without ever finishing it..

I just, I don't know what happened. I feel bad that there wasn't a whole lot of discussion. I noticed a trend throught the discussions I was involved in and it just wasn't there for everyone. We win some and we lose some I guess. I do want to thank everyone for letting me be involved as much as I could.

Winter (winter9) | 4678 comments Don't feel bad at all Taylor! Sometimes there are a lot of discussion and sometimes not. It depends a little on how many read the book and how much there is to discuss :)


Taylor C | 454 comments Very true. My fiance and I were talking about it last night, and it was also the last full month of Summer. So maybe several people had activities going on, going back to school, etc. :)

Winter (winter9) | 4678 comments Definitely! I feel like I have not have opportunity to engage in deeper books or spend much time on goodreads. I'm ready for fall and winter now.

Agreed! I'm ready for "curl up with a good book" type of weather :)

You're preaching to the choir. Everytime I sit down my cat Bam Bam just hops right up. He's like my little magnet lol.
