A BRIEF CONVERSATION WITH MY VIEWERS
Hi guys! So... assuming that you've followed the instructions on my background image, this tag you're looking at is the last one you'll be viewing with me today. Again, to those of you who HAVEN'T read the Book Thief, I advise you to back out of the lovely blue pages of this presentation and save it for next time. If you're the type of person who likes spoilers, by all means... invite yourselves in.
~ Intro ~
For this tag, I decided to give a virtual funeral for the people who's souls got whisked away by Death in The Book Thief. Some of you may be thinking, What!??? Is she serious? But... but that's so random! Like, why in the world would someone want to do that? (Oh, and I know some of you are thinking that. Don't try to deny it. You know who you are.)
Now, where was I? Oh right, I was at the part where you people rudely interrupted me. Ahem.
Well, my disrespectful friend, I'm serious. Very serious. Just... think about it. Just for a few seconds. Now, in case some of you are suffering from short-term memory loss, I'll give you a quick recap of the story.
In The Book Thief, a kid named Liesel gets sent to a village near the outskirts of Munich. She's just lost her brother and her mom. She gets taken in by a nice man named Hans Hubermann and his wife Rosa, who has a bad habit of swearing every couple of seconds. She eventually adjusts to life in the village, learns to read, steals a little, gets a best friend, and grows up a bit. Basically, she has a life. But suddenly, the enemy decides to drop a bomb on Munich, and LITERALLY EVERYBODY DIES. All except for Liesel, who's alive only because of the story she was writing. The last thing we see of her before Death gets all philosophical is of her howling in the dust. She somehow gets herself landed in Australia, and dies in ripe old age.
