I'm excited about this one.
Now I hope that my high hopes about the film's quality and loyalty to one of my favorite novels of the past few years is not just setting me up for a huge letdown.
After watching the trailer, my biggest concern is the absence of the narrator's voice. As fans of the book will remember, The Book Thief is narrated by Death himself. I hope that the film does not ignore this aspect of the story because that voice is one of the things that makes The Book Thief so special.
