On May 15th, Irv, Angelo, Scott, and myself met to discuss The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. Our average ranking for both Readability
and Interest was 4. Likeliness of reading another book by this author: 3.25 (out of 5).
We thought the book was very interesting in exploring the time period. It provided some interesting perspectives on the history of World Wars I and II. It was
interesting to view WWII from the perspectives of the Germans. We were not sure about the significance of the apple raid, and whether it was critical to the story. We discussed whether the heroine was Jewish herself, but decided the plot did not give enough information to confirm. Ron emailed to say the movie was better than the book.
