Book Review of I Am the Messenger

I Am the Messenger
Beanbean avatar reviewed on + 56 more book reviews

"I Am The Messenger" by Markus Zusak does not have the impact of the author's subsequent book, "The Book Thief" but it is a pretty powerful, nonetheless. Ed Kennedy is nineteen years old and has done nothing with his life. Then he finds himself in a bank that is being held-up. He performs an heroic act and his life begins to change...though not in the way that you'd think. This is a lovely book about "paying it forward" and random acts of kindness for kindnesses sake.
