Here is what I knew about The Book Thief right before I began reading it:
- It is set in WWII
- It is narrated by Death
- It made my sister cry desperately.
So one of my favorite bloggers, Kayla at The Thousand Lives, has this feature called Saturated Reads where she talks about what colors a book made her think of. The Book Thief made me think of that feature, because it has some pretty clearly defined colors for me. (Or non-colors, in a sense.)
