The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book is a really nice story I enjoyed much when I was a little younger.
It is a story, that tells children something about life, a fact that everyone has to learn someday:
When you are a child, you want to grow up. You don`t want to be so little anymore. But when you are all grown up you realize, the days back when were precious and you would do just everything to go back to your old carefree life.
I enjoyed the characters though they sometimes accept strange things a little easy.When I have children, someday I will read this book to them, or let them read it on their own. But being a little more grown up than I was when I first read "The thief lord" I won't re-read it. Maybe someday...
It is a really good story, when you are under 16 that abducts you into a mysterious world full of adventures for young kids and wonderful places to visit. A world where danger can't harm you, because you have your friends and you stick together.
It shows how little people can survive in a world created by the big. Just having one another and their fantasy.
I remember watching the movie together with my whole class... we went to the theater and on the way back all girls were gossiping about how cute Rollo Weeks was playing the lead. He was our number one topic for a long time and not just the guys in our class even our teacher was really pissed after that. The next movie we watched as a class was "Die Wolke". No good looking lead but a nuclear catastrophe and a dying little brother. All girls cried and our teacher didn't know how to calm us down. We never went to the movies together again. But I'm thinking about that movie a lot these days...
But now I really have to go, do something for school... or not ;)
best wishes KJ
