Speaking of books being turned into movies, I finally saw the trailer for The Book Thief today.
As many of you know, The Book Thief is one of my favorite books and since I heard it was being adapted for a film I have anxiously been awaiting the trailer. Well, ladies and gents, here it is.
My reaction: I was sobbing before the trailer was over, but in a good way. The novel is so beautiful and I feel that the trailer captures so much of the mood and tone of the novel, one of hope despite terrible circumstances.
However, I really hope that Death as a narrator/character is somehow incorporated into the film. That was one thing that really struck me while reading the novel and it is something that makes the story of The Book Thief so unique and memorable.
Of course the book will always be better than the film, but I can’t wait to see it and I hope that it is as wonderful as the trailer promises.
I’d love to hear your thoughts and reactions! Let’s chat!
