the power of reading

I haven't read the book, but I love the movie. Reading opens another door for the bereaved little girl Liesel, straining her bond with her adoptive father.
Liesel was unfortunate, her biological parents left her, she was adopted by a German couple, but she was happy again, her adoptive parents gave her a warm home, her adoptive father guided her to read books, and the neighbor boy approached, be her friend. In the end, it was also because of the books that she escaped the plane crash and survived. Books gave her comfort and strength, as well as the ability to use reading to help others.

What impressed me most was the part of burning the book, the lack of spiritual world made the girl more eager for books. This reminds me of the Cultural Revolution, when I was also deprived of the right to read, but there are still many teenagers, like Liesel, who are voraciously reading books they can find in an age of equal material scarcity.

    Lissell, the poor girl called the "book thief" by the god of death, worked hard to survive in war-torn Germany, and inexplicably helped others who were also suffering.
