I'm not a parent so I'm not going to pretend that I am qualified to say if you should let you child read this or not but I just wanted to applaud you for not allowing your young daughter to read Twilight! It is such a breath of fresh air to me you just have no idea. It makes me sick when I see moms talking about how "hot" Edward Cullen is with their 12 year old daughter. And double kudos on the video games. Personally I loved The Hunger Games and I loved The Book Thief, however I am 20 not 10, I was a fairly advanced reader when I was younger and I have a feeling The Book Thief would have haunted me at that age so honestly, no idea. But thanks for giving me a little ray of hope that there are still parents checked in out there.

Yes it does, and they are very well done, although a couple of them were very small.

I think it was absolutely open to that interpretation... especially when Liesel at the end was thinking of all the people she'd loved in her life, mentioned her husband, her kids, and various people she'd known in Germany... excluding Max. Implying that he was mentioned elsewhere. Oh, these ambiguous endings....

Liesel's "coming of age" is, in my opinion, more a change in her world view, in particular, the power that words have. They can cause terrible devastation and hatred, as in Hitler's use of them, or they can have a tremendous ability to heal, or at least take us to a better place than we find ourselves in, this, the books did, but also those that showed great courage to refuse to think and talk the way most were at the time. In a much smaller way, her "coming of age" is reflected in her feelings toward Rudy, especially at his death. She learned, all too hard, that lost opportunities are sometimes never presented again.

This book is appropriate for a mature middle school reader or early high school, there is cursing (in German), and the violence of the time period, although the violence is not a main theme. Hope this helps...

I think Death is referring to the people who didn't stand by doing nothing during this time, but the people who were helping their Jewish neighbors by hiding them, giving them food, or fighting. The beauty of neighbors helping neighbors, the innocence of children, the simplicity of a budding flower, or a sunset, or the fact that the world kept turning despite the horrors of humanity.
