I was waiting for the tube the other day and saw a huge poster advertising the release of the book thief. I was so excited when I saw it because the book was amazing!
The book was written by Markus Zusak and follows a young girl Liesel who steals books. It's based around World War II in Germany. There's a lot more too it but I don't want to give anything away.
I would definitely recommend reading the book first mainly because the narrator was death; so different and unique to any book I've read. I'm not sure if the movie would portray that part of the book which is why I think it would be a really good idea to read the book first. Sure isn't always a good idea to read the book first :)
It really is a magnificent story and told beautifully. Anyway it's great so get on it before you splurge in the cinema :) I can't wait!
Much Love x
