First of all, I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who recommended this book. I stayed up most of the night last night reading it--I just couldn't put it down once I started. The vignette The Word Shaker was one of the most poignant pieces of writing I've read.
So here's something I'm wondering about: Did Liesel and Max get married? At the end, when Death comes for Liesel, he mentions her thinking about her husband and children. Then the next chapter is where Max finds Liesel again. But there's never a definite connection between the two. Are we just supposed to assume that that is what happened? It's not a huge deal in the grand scheme of the book, but one nuance I'm wondering about.
