This 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!
