The Book Thief


Why is the narrator of the book, not scary and dark, as death is usually perceived?

useful. thanx

I believe a message the story was trying to push across is that things aren't always as they seem.

Death isn't this evil, heartless event or creature. Not every German living in Germany at that point in time was a Nazi (regardless of their actions outside of closed doors). And (contrary to Hitler's belief) those of jewish decent/religion aren't bad people.

I think it's a don't judge a book by it's cover. Just because Death is perceived as an scary and dark subject doesn't mean that's how it really is. It forces you to think outside of the little box and find deeper meaning.

you are not good knowkodge
