Book Review of I Am the Messenger

I Am the Messenger
reviewed on

This is the second book I have read by Markus Zusak...I read "The Book Thief" while on vacation two years ago.
It stuck with me. Wondering how the movie will turn out.
"I Am the Messenger" was just as different and unexpected.
He deals with complex ideas in a simple and clean way. Not your usual story...I never felt he was using "tricks" in his writing. Kinda reminded me of Richard Bach and "Illusions". The story doesn't try to make you suspend belief but makes you want to know more....
