I'm sure the producers would try their hardest to do the book justice, but I just can't see it translating well to the big screen. And I don't want it to. The words are too beautiful to be said out loud, and I think the whole feel and point of the book would be lost in a movie screenplay.
Hmm. Does anyone else have any thoughts on this? Am I being too harsh? Would it make an amazing movie?
Anyway, in honour of The Book Thief and its utter perfection, here's a cover gallery of US, UK and AU printings. I couldn't find any others, but please post a link if you know of any different editions!
Out of interest, which is your favourite? I'm a big fan of the UK adult cover - there's something haunting about Liesel dancing with Death. I also like the US one, dominoes... like it's telling us that we all fall down eventually. Okay, enough of my rambling.
Movie thoughts, please!
