ok so Markus Zusak is my favorite author. I have only read two of his books but, they where both the most amazing things I had ever read the two books where:Getting the Girl and The Book Theif I have a few ideas on what makes his books great but I am not able to actauly deconstruct them from memory characters: they are human. they have inner thoughts and actions that follow there character. there character is interesting plot/setting: the plot is relatable but unique the book theif wwII in germany getting the girl modern day in europe slums. the characters in the plot interact with the setting and the plot seems to fit the characters and the character fit the plot ( not copy and paste character and setting to make a story ) writting style: he writes in interesting ways. He uses poetry and beautiful imagery all written or seen from the characters point of view and the character have a very interesting point of view. is there anyone out there that would like to add to my deconcruction of this amazing author. the reason I want to find out his methods is to improve my writting I think many of us can benfit from learning from his techinques.
