Motifs in The Book Thief
You should be at least halfway through the book by now. At this point, what do you feel is a strong motif in the story? Explain what it is, and give examples. And, if you can, make connections to other stories with a similar motif: How is it dealt with similarly or differently? Which makes a stronger impact on the reader? Which comes across more realitistic? etc.
You can have the same motif as someone else, but be sure to give new examples.
