Essay on Religion


In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.


In Brian Percival’s film, The Book Thief, an ominous narrator pops in and out throughout the movie narrating the protagonist, Liesel's, tragic life story. It is not until the dreary end of the film that we find out the narrator's true identity, Death. It is only appropriate the film and novel would have such a narrator, as Liesel's life has been rattled by death on many circumstances. Many film reviews and essays do not believe Death to be an appropriate narrator. These reviewers feel that Death as a narrator almost pokes fun at the very serious time period the movie focuses on. I, however, do feel that Death is an appropriate narrator."
