The Book Thief
By: Markus Zusak
Essential characters

The conflict of The Book Thief is man against man. Throughout the book the Nazis and the Jews are constantly against each other, and anyone they feel that's a threat. In The Book Thief the Nazis continue to bomb the Jews, "Misfortune? Is that what glued them down like that? Of course not. Let's not be stupid. It probably had more to do with the hurled bombs, thrown down by humans hiding in the clouds" (Zusak 13).
The Book Thief took place during 1939 to 1943. In the town of Molching, Germany, near Munich. In The Book Thief the town is constantly being bombed and killing thousands, "Earlier kids had been playing hopscotch there, on the street that looked like oil-stained pages...Then bombs. This time everything was too late. The sirens, the cuckoo shrieks in the radio. All to late" (Zusak 12).

The resolution of The Book Thief sadly ends with the town of Molching getting bombed by Nazi Germany in which Liesel lives in. Unfortunatly, she loses everyone she loves, but she lives. In The Book Thief Liesal is the , only one left walking down the street, "Picture yourself walking down Himmel Street in the dark. Your hair is getting wet and the air pressure is on the verge of drastic change. The first bomb hits Tommy Muller's apartment block" (Zusak 529).
Liesel is a young girl who's mother has to give her up. She also has a vast love for literature.
Hans is Liesel's foster father in whom she finds a long lasting friendship.
Rosa is Liesel's foster mother who has a very particular vocabulary.
Max is a very close friend to Liesel whom was the son of Han's friend from the war. He was also Jewish and lived in Liesel's basement.
Rudy is Liesel's neighbor in whom she can entrust everything.
In the Book Thief Rosa and Liesel finally get a letter from Hans, "Just over a week after Liesel's birthday in mid-February, she and Rosa finally received a detailed letter from Hans Hubermann" (Zusak 479).
