The Book Thief Blu-ray Combo Pack Giveaway (Ends 3/12)

The Book Thief DVD

I didn’t catch The Book Thief when it snuck into theaters last year, but I was definitely interested. Anything having to do with books and reading always grabs my attention. I’m not a huge fan of war movies, though. And that goes especially for anything having to do with World War II and the holocaust.

As a Jew, I’ve learned all about the horrors of that time period both at Hebrew School and just in general from movies, TV shows and family discussions. It’s certainly a rough and truly horrific time period, and I know the value in learning history to avoid repeating it. It’s just real tough to sit down and get into any period pieces from that era.

But even so, The Book Thief, based on a best-selling book, can certainly suck me in. There’s even a discussion guide (PDF) available, full of questions to ask and… well, discuss with your friends, family or students to truly get the most out of this film.

I’m looking forward to watching The Book Thief on DVD when it hits on March 11. Now that I’m a Fox Home Entertainment Insider, I’ll be getting a copy to review, so stay tuned!

In the meantime, you can now get The Book Thief on Digital HD!

Based on the beloved best-selling book comes this profoundly moving story of a girl who transforms the lives of those around her during World War II, Germany. Although Liesel (Sophie Nélisse) is illiterate when she is adopted by a German couple (OSCAR® Winner Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson), her adoptive father encourages her to learn to read. Ultimately, the power of words helps Liesel and Max (Ben Schnetzer), a Jew hiding in the family’s home, escape from the events unfolding around them in this extraordinary, acclaimed film directed by Brian Percival (Downton Abbey).

    Well I missed this giveaway – and also the movie in theaters – so I hope this counts as a non-giveaway comment because I want to comment on this post and this Movie/Book.

    Like you – I’m not really into “war movies” but from what I’ve read and heard – at heart this isn’t really about war – it’s about the human condition, the heartbreaking and terrifying cruelty some people are capable of – and also the amazing spirit within us to to survive and find wonder and beauty in this crazy, half-sad world we live in.

    I’ve got a trip to Montana coming up next week and I ordered the Bicycle Thief from Amazon to read on the trip and the flights. I’m hoping it will turn out to be like the timeless classic “To Kill A Mockingbird” – both the book and the movie are masterpieces.

    Have you ever seen the movie or read “The Diary of Anne Frank”? (I’m sure you have!) ?

    Anyway, I AM going to read this book – and rent/stream the movie. My Honey/Hubby is worried that it will turn out to be a “chick flick” – but something tells me there’s a lot more to this than that.

    Thanks!

      Hey Jesselyn! Thanks so much for the comment and yes it does indeed count. (Even if the giveaway was still going on, I’d count it, since it’s more than just a quick comment). I most definitely read Anne Frank a few times in school, saw the movie and even visited the Anne Frank House museum when I was in Amsterdam years ago.

    I honestly don’t have a single favorite. I’ve read an average of 5 books a week for the past 60 years and there is no way to pick just one.

  3. Mary Cloud says

    I can’t think of all I’ve read but a favorite I’ve read recently is Confessions of a Shopaholic

    My favorite book of all time was The Unicorn Treasury. It was my favorite to get out of the library when I was little and if I came across it again, I would snatch it up to share with my daughter.

  5. Elisabeth says

    My favorite book of all time is “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day”. It teaches us that the grass is NOT greener on the other side.

  6. Amber T says

    I don’t know that I have a favorite of all time. I love the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning and am currently reading the Splintered series by A.G. Howard which is really good as well. I did read the book thief and thought it was a good book and will probably watch the movie once it comes out on DVD.

  7. Julie Link says

    That is a tough one – I can do authors – Tom Clancy, Robert Jordan, Clive Cussler, etc… There are way too many to list and name!

  8. Jeani Brickner says

    the giving tree. amazing book. i have a lot of faves because i’m an avid reader, but this one is all time, go-to, can’t live without book. :)

  9. Tabathia B says

    Really hard choice as I am an avid book reader, but right now I am loving Discovery of Witches (trilogy), Harry Potter (entire series), Percy Jackson and the Heroes of Olympus entire series

  10. Kristi S. says

    Any of the James Patterson Alex Cross series – Kiss The Girls was my first favorite! I also love the Lillian Jackson Braun :Cat Who? series.

  11. Andrea Amy says

    That’s a hard one as I have many. I have to say the Harry Potter series is at the top of my list, and I really really really really loved Divergent.

  12. Kortney Picker says

    My favorite book of all time is Pride and Prejudice, I usually read or listen to the book on audio about twice a year. It usually only takes a couple days for me to get through it because I can’t ever put it down or stop listening until it’s over :)

  13. Rekha says

    If it’s the one I’ve read most often, it’d be Zorro (something like a 1956 publication). Read it when I was about 10 and just loved to read it over and over.

  14. Rosemary says

    Book titled “I Am The Messenger” is an awesome read. A cab driver who is underage and I love his dog who drinks coffee the best.But this guy becomes a hero. When reading the book,it puts me in the feeling,like I am the cab driver.its so lifelike to read. I would love to have the chance to read this book to.Getting my eye glasses out for this read.

  15. Stephanie Bondlow says

    The Tilted World was such an amazing book and I really think everyone should read it. It was written by Tom Franklin and his wife. Southern Historical Fiction with real events.

  16. Brandee H says

    At one time I had a favourite book but I find it changes all the time now. I’ve been retreading the Four Agreements. It helps with my perspective on life and letting go.

  17. kelly nicholson says

    In the comments section of this post, tell me: What’s your favorite book of all time?

    the catcher in the rye

  18. Misty Rios says

    That’s a very difficult question seeing as I am a book lover and have over 3000 books in my house…I love them all!

  19. Michelle S says

    My favorite book of all time is A Woman of Substance by Barbara Taylor Bradford. I love the story because it has a strong female character.
