The way the writer describes the surroundings
Every little detail, especially the way David pray
Every time he calls out to the God of the Green Pasture, it is sooooo sincere
When you surging for something bigger than yourself, do as David: God of the green pastures..... it is me... David
Read this book 3 times, listen to this book twice already, only downloaded it in this week
Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.
This is quite simply one of the most beautiful, heart rendering stories I have ever heard. Breaking down every barrier, looking deep into the human spirit, revealing the good in a boy who had every reason to be bitter, to be broken beyond repair, this historical tale brings the reader from the child's escape from a concentration camp through his journey through Europe. The genuine, forthright way that David deals with his environment, the people he meets, those who would harm him or help him is touching, amazing, thought provoking. That a child who had escaped from a lifetime in a concentration camp could have such compassion and reasoning of right and wrong, that he would choose to believe in "the God of the green pastures" . . . the God of the David in the Bible . . . well, it goes to show that words, even few words spoken to children with ears to hear are sometimes retained. Though the book is historical fiction, it is true to the times, and well could have happened. God bless those who lost family members in the concentration camps . . . God bless those who survived . . . and God help us all who let it happen.
I've loved this book since I had to read it in year 8 at school. The story is intriguing and the main character, David, grows and develops as the story unfolds. It was well read and flowed smoothly. I'd definitely recommend this one!
I dont know, I havent read the print version
The Book Thief, Room.
I love Davids Journey into Italy, living by the coast
Davids realisation of who he was, and why he came from where he did.
This book is moving, profound, innocent, yet worldy, ugly, yet beautiful I loved the narrator , I loved the book.
