The Book Theif Themes Lisa culverhouse

Theme #1- Death is inevitable

"...one opportunity leads directly to another, just as risk leads to more risk, life to more life, and death to more death" (Zusak 83).

This quote catches attention as it states how one thing leads to another. Cause and effect. When one opportunity is given, when finished more doors are opened. One risk leads to other risk. Max is at risk by being jewish, and brought more people at risk by staying at their house. Life brings more life, and during the holocaust, death of one was the death of another, physically or mentally.

Death is a terrifying thought. It worries us all. We don't know what it is. We don't know what happens. But it will happen.
