elusive lights chapter 1 . 3/25/2016
Heartbreakingly, brutally beautiful. The length was fitting - not too unnecessarily long, and yet not so short as to leave any sort of empty space - and your style was reminiscent of Markus Zusak's himself. You really did the novel and its characters justice. Thank you.

What poetry. What beauty.

Sigh. Your story was like an exquisite summer breeze in Florida. Breathtaking. Ethereal.

I've never read a Book Thief fanfic before because I didn't trust them to live up to my favourite author but after reading some of your other fics and seeing this on your profile I decided to give it a whirl. Whew, long sentence!

Anyway, this is lovely! The first paragraph was exquisite. I love this. Beautiful.

Oh Rudy! Yeah, his was the most bruising, definitely one of the most devastating fictional deaths I’ve come across. Even *Death* cried for him.

I love that he dreams in red, in Liesel-colors. This kind of complements her always thinking of him with his lit-up hair. And guh, it aches to know what’s really happening—the last line is like a punch to the gut.

I really love the way you write.

It's been a long time since I read "The Book Thief" but this story reminded me of how elegantly written it was. You captured Rudy perfectly, and it was an extremely moving piece. I loved your personification of death, too. Great job.
VickyVicarious chapter 1 . 7/6/2010
Beautiful. I love that it's the colours, and it fits so well with the book.

I ache for Rudy, much like Death does. It's a terrible, wonderful sort of ache and you caused it again here, which is really the highest praise I could offer for a 'Book Thief' fanfic.

Oh wow, this is beautiful. So powerful, and so succint - I loved it! Well done, it was really really beautiful.

I know! Augh, Rudy! I loved this fic, though, beautifully, succinctly captured and this line:

that's all he needs to catch the book thief by the mouth, even if her face comes away looking like a charcoal smudge

is particularly fantastic. Gorgeous.

This is beautiful 3 I hesitantly went to the Book Thief's ff archives because I wasn't sure if anything would be able to do justice to the actual book (which, I agree, it was one of the best books I've read in a while. I basically read the entire thing in one night. And I don't remember if any book made me cry as much as this one did). However, I really loved this and the ending was heartbreaking. Beautifully written.
