“I AM HAUNTED BY HUMANS.”
I’d give the film adaptation a 3.5 out of 5. If it weren’t for that last third, I would give it a higher rating because I did enjoy it and it is a wonderful film.
If you’re at all interested here is the link for the first fifteen-ish pages I wrote of my own adaptation for The Book Thief, keeping in mind that I am not a professional and this was my first foray into writing any kind of script/screenplay. Also note that I was ideally writing it with the mindset of this film being a three-part miniseries. Though caveat: it may contain spoilers, as it is a non-linear film narrative version of the story.
