The Book Thief: Buy the Book

<i>The Book Thief</i>: Buy the Book

"The book was better." It's what every book snob and/or passionate fan of a particular piece of literature that's been turned into a film will tell you. And you know, as much as it pains even the most fervent defenders of movies to say, nine out of ten times they're right. While director Brian Percival and writer Michael Petroni's glossy adaptation of Markus Zusak's beloved, award-winning YA novel The Book Thief is undoubtedly inferior to its original text, it does something important in the process. The movie not only wants to make you go back and read the book (or read it for the first time, which you most certainly should), but it makes you want to read just about everything out there and write to your heart's desire. In a story filled with messages, that one will likely echo the loudest.
