The first book I read when I moved to Germany was The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. One of the last movies I’ve seen while living in Germany was The Book Thief.

I wrote a book review when I read the book, simply because I was so emotionally effected by reading a Holocaust book while in Germany. The movie gave me the same feeling. I think it was fantastic, but it gave me chills. Especially now that I’ve spent four and a half years here and have German friends and understand the culture. It’s a difficult topic to discuss so I will only say that I think the adaptation to movie was terrific.
