I just came back to a hotel room in Texas, and something ALWAYS happens in Texas…Tonight the poster art came through for the movie of #TheBookThief, and what can I say? It’s gorgeous and stunning, and perfect in its image of Liesel, caught in the act of book thievery.
If you could see me now, you’d catch me smiling…and why?
She’s many things, that girl, but to me, right now - she looks ready.
ZUSAK THAT IS SUCH AN AWESOME MOVIE POSTER.
Although I do admit that this is a pretty neat poster, one of my favorite things about The Book Thief is that I never really pictured Liesel as pretty. I think readers in general tend to default to thinking of fictional characters as fairly attractive, but to me, Liesel just… wasn’t. She didn’t have clean, neatly curled hair and full lips and wide eyes. That’s too perfect for her. In my head, she was scrappy, scrawny, a little dirty. Real.
