MUSIC TO SCROLL BY: The soundtrack to The Book Thief by John Williams

 

 

 

THE BOOK THIEF: We’ve been playing this soundtrack a LOT at Chez Luscious – it’s simply divine. Thanks to John Williams for composing such a beautiful score.

Do make sure you read the book by Markus Zusak and see the film, directed by Brian Percival and starring Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson, and Sophie Nélisse. It’s very touching.

Why not play this in the background as you scroll through the rest of the Luscious website?

I only read the book by Gillian Flynn recently, and was completely hooked. Can’t wait to see the film!

MUSIC TO SCROLL BY: Toccata and Fugue in D minor by JS Bach
