Marry, Date or Dump: The Book Thief

book thiefThis Monday’s Marry, Date or Dump is going to take a little bit of imagination with the ages to make the characters comparable, but I still wanted to use The Book Thief this week because it has three male characters I would love to marry. Hans Hubermann is to honorable and gentle, and seems like one of the best fathers ever. Max Vandenberg is so intelligent, creative, and brave. And Rudy Steiner is one of my favorite characters. He is so lively and funny and original. My favorite moment in the book is when he paints himself black to me more like Jesse Owens. I’m having trouble deciding between these characters myself, so I’m excited to read in the comments who you would marry, who you would date, and who you would dump. Also, has anyone seen the movie yet? It’s gotten underwhelming reviews, but I think I will still see it eventually. I’d love your thoughts!

    1. Max is so great. I keep switching my mind between the three of them. I feel like I might be slightly leaning towards Rudy, but then I change my mind.

      I definitely agree with you that dating any of them and having it not end in marriage would be completely heartbreaking. Thanks for commenting!

  1. Marry Max, Date Rudy ( fun but not real stable, if I remember correctly) and have Hans to be the grandfather for my children – can’t dump him
