In a fading town, far from anyone he knew or trusted, a young Lemony Snicket began his apprenticeshiRead Review
Meet Ed Kennedy—underage cabdriver, pathetic cardplayer, and useless at romance. He lives in a shack with his coffee-addicted dog, the Doorman, and he’s hopelessly in love with his best friend, Audrey. His life is one of peaceful routine and incompetence, until he inadvertently stops a bank robbery. That’s when the first Ace arrives. 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?
Winner of the 2003 Children’s Book Council Book of the Year Award in Australia, I Am the Messenger is a cryptic journey filled with laughter, fists, and love.
One of the best books ever written by an Australian author.
This book is amazing! I love the way Markus Zusak writes and takes you on a journey. One of my favourites and I would recommend this novel to anyone.
Super mega fantastic wicked awesome lovely. It feels raw. And real. The characters are quirky, realistic, flawed and perfect. Their situations are like normal situations magnified a thousand times, so you feel like you know their story, but never thought about it before. It's humorous, and sad, and it stays in your mind forever. The very first line pulls you in, and the very last line simply doesn't finish off the book. Read it. Très magnifique. Markus Zusak is a genius. 'Nuff said.
