I was a fan of a possible Liesel/Max relationship, post-war. In the book, it ends somewhat ambiguously. I read a review by the author, who said that it was up to the reader's interpretation. So, in my mind, they lived happily together for the rest of their lives.

I think that they are better off as siblings because it seemed like there was a pretty big age gap. I can see why it looks like they were heading towards being more than friends, but I can't imagine it. I thought Liesel and Rudy would end up together.

I kinda thought Liesel and Max were headed in that direction anyway. They obviously would be better as more that friends. They get along well, and have genuine affection for each other.
