least, how I try HERE IS A SMALL FACT You are going to die.I am in all truthfulness attempting to be cheerful about this whole topic, though most people find themselves hindered in believing me, no matter my protestations Please, trust me I most definitely can be cheerful I can be amiable Agreeable Affable And that s only the A s Just don t ask me to be nice Nice has nothing to do with me Reaction to the AFOREMENTIONED factDoes this worry you I urge you don t be afraid.I m nothing if not fair Of course, an introduction.A beginning.Where are my manners I could introduce myself properly, but it s not really necessary You will know me well enough and soon enough, depending on a diverse range of variables It suffices to say that at some point in time, I will be standing over you, as genially as possible Your soul will be in my arms A color will be perched on my shoulder I will carry you gently away.At that moment, you will be lying there I rarely find people standing up You will be caked in your own body There might be a discovery a scream will dribble down the air The only sound I ll hear after that will be my own breathing, and the sound of the smell, of my footsteps.The question is, what color will everything be at that moment when I come for you What will the sky be saying Personally, I like a chocolate colored sky Dark, dark chocolate People say it suits me I do, however, try to enjoy every color I see the whole spectrum A billion or so flavors, none of them quite the same, and a sky to slowly suck on It takes the edge off the stress It helps me relax A SMALL THEORY People observe the colors of a day only at its beginnings and ends, but to me it s quite clear that a day merges through a multitude of shades and intonations, with each passing moment A single hour can consist of thousands of different colors Waxy yellows, cloud spat blues Murky darknesses In my line of work, I make it a point to notice them.As I ve been alluding to, my one saving grace is distraction It keeps me sane It helps me cope, considering the length of time I ve been performing this job The trouble is, who could ever replace me Who could step in while I take a break in your stock standard resort style vacation destination, whether it be tropical or of the ski trip variety The answer, of course, is nobody, which has prompted me to make a conscious, deliberate decision to make distraction my vacation Needless to say, I vacation in increments In colors.Still, it s possible that you might be asking, why does he even need a vacation What does he need distraction from Which brings me to my next point.It s the leftover humans.The survivors.They re the ones I can t stand to look at, although on many occasions I still fail I deliberately seek out the colors to keep my mind off them, but now and then, I witness the ones who are left behind, crumbling among the jigsaw puzzle of realization, despair, and surprise They have punctured hearts They have beaten lungs.Which in turn brings me to the subject I am telling you about tonight, or today, or whatever the hour and color It s the story of one of those perpetual survivors an expert at being left behind.It s just a small story really, about, among other things A girl Some words An accordionist Some fanatical Germans A Jewish fist fighter And quite a lot of thieveryI saw the book thief three times.BESIDE THE RAILWAY LINEFirst up is something white Of the blinding kind.Some of you are most likely thinking that white is not really a color and all of that tired sort of nonsense Well, I m here to tell you that it is White is without question a color, and personally, I don t think you want to argue with me A REASSURING ANNOUNCEMENT Please, be calm, despite that previous threat.I am all bluster I am not violent I am not malicious.I am a result.Yes, it was white.It felt as though the whole globe was dressed in snow Like it had pulled it on, the way you pull on a sweater Next to the train line, footprints were sunken to their shins Trees wore blankets of ice.As you might expect, someone had died.They couldn t just leave him on the ground For now, it wasn t such a problem, but very soon, the track ahead would be cleared and the train would need to move on.There were two guards.There was one mother and her daughter.One corpse.The mother, the girl, and the corpse remained stubborn and silent.Well, what else do you want me to do The guards were tall and short The tall one always spoke first, though he was not in charge He looked at the smaller, rounder one The one with the juicy red face.Well, was the response, we can t just leave them like this, can we The tall one was losing patience Why not And the smaller one damn near exploded He looked up at the tall one s chin and cried, Spinnst du Are you stupid The abhorrence on his cheeks was growing thicker by the moment His skin widened Come on, he said, traipsing over the snow We ll carry all three of them back on if we have to We ll notify the next stop.As for me, I had already made the most elementary of mistakes I can t explain to you the severity of my self disappointment Originally, I d done everything right I studied the blinding, white snow sky who stood at the window of the moving train I practically inhaled it, but still, I wavered I buckled I became interested In the girl Curiosity got the better of me, and I resigned myself to stay as long as my schedule allowed, and I watched.Twenty three minutes later, when the train was stopped, I climbed out with them.A small soul was in my arms.I stood a little to the right.The dynamic train guard duo made their way back to the mother, the girl, and the small male corpse I clearly remember that my breath was loud that day I m surprised the guards didn t notice me as they walked by The world was sagging now, under the weight of all that snow.Perhaps ten meters to my left, the pale, empty stomached girl was standing, frost stricken.Her mouth jittered.Her cold arms were folded.Tears were frozen to the book thief s face.Brilliant and hugely ambitiousSome will argue that a book so difficult and sad may not be appropriate for teenage readersAdults will probably like it this one did , but its a great young adult novelIts the kind of book that can be life changing, because without ever denying the essential amorality and randomness of the natural order, The Book Thief offers us a believable hard won hopeThe hope we see in Liesel is unassailable, the kind you can hang on to in the midst of poverty and war and violence Young readers need such alternatives to ideological rigidity, and such explorations of how stories matter And so, come to think of it, do adults New York Times, May 14, 2006 The Book Thief is unsettling and unsentimental, yet ultimately poetic Its grimness and tragedy run through the reader s mind like a black and white movie, bereft of the colors of life Zusak may not have lived under Nazi domination, but The Book Thief deserves a place on the same shelf with The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank and Elie Wiesel s Night It seems poised to become a classic USA TodayZusak doesnt sugarcoat anything, but he makes
