I Am the Messenger | [Markus Zusak]

I Am the Messenger

Ed Kennedy is an underage cabdriver without much of a future. He's pathetic at playing cards, hopelessly in love with his best friend, Audrey, and utterly devoted to his coffee-drinking dog, the Doorman. His life is one of peaceful routine and incompetence, until he inadvertently stops a bank robbery.

Publisher's Summary

Ed Kennedy is an underage cabdriver without much of a future. He's pathetic at playing cards, hopelessly in love with his best friend, Audrey, and utterly devoted to his coffee-drinking dog, the Doorman. His life is one of peaceful routine and incompetence, until he inadvertently stops a bank robbery.

That's when the first ace arrives in the mail.

That's when Ed becomes the messenger.

Chosen to care, he makes his way through town helping and hurting (when necessary), until only one question remains: Who's behind Ed's mission?

What the Critics Say

"Zusak succeeds brilliantly." (Booklist)
"Zusak's characters, styling, and conversations are believably unpretentious, well conceived, and appropriately raw. Together, these key elements fuse into an enigmatically dark, almost film-noir atmosphere." (School Library Journal)

    "Hated this book, Loved "The Book Thief""

    WARNING: Zusak's other book, "The Book Thief" is one of the finest books I've ever listened to. So I figured, "This is also by him, it must be pretty good!". NO! ... It isn't at all good. A big "who cares?" story about a dumb 19 year old kid who delivers important "messages about life" ... It's fatuous. Some might like it ... But it does not hold a candle to "BOOK THIEF" ... Not even close.
