The Messenger

St ace arrives in the mailThat's when Ed becomes the messengerChosen to care he makes his way through town helping and hurting when necessary until only one uestion remains Who's behind Ed's missi. Nineteen year old cab driver Ed Kennedy foils a bank robbery and soon finds himself receiving cryptic messages in the mail written on playing cards Each card bears hints toward three people Ed must help in some way Will Ed ever find out who is behind is mysterious messagesApart from books by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett this is my first foray into young adult literature and I enjoyed it immenselyI think the first thing that pulled me in was that Ed is a lot like I was at nineteen I like to think I had a little confidence but I had no idea what I wanted to do either and I m reasonably sure I was secretly in love with a girl who was only interested in being friends at the time as well And hell I m damn sure I would have taken up the messenger role like Ed did had I gotten playing cards in the mailThe supporting cast was very well done from Ed s friends Marv Ritchie and Audrey to the people he bore messages to like Sophie Milla and the spoilerific rest of themThe writing was superb I liked Ed s self deprecating sense of humor and found a lot of parts very touching view spoilerI even shed some silent man tears when Marv met his daughter for the first time hide spoiler

Is 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 robberyThat's when the fir. My full name s Ed Kennedy I m nineteen I m an underage cabdriver I m typical of many of the young men you see in this suburban outpost of the city not a whole lot of prospects or possibility That aside I read books than I should and I m decidedly crap at sex and doing my taxes Nice to meet youAfter accidentally preventing a bank robber from escaping Ed Kennedy receives his first playing card with three addresses written on it He understands that he needs to deliver a message to each of these places but the card offers no further instructions Relying on his intuition alone Ed starts touching people s lives and trying to understand what he has to do The messages vary from simple to horribly complex and painful but they all have one thing in common they need Ed to shake them up and save them from themselves I think the most wonderful thing about Zusak is the surprising humanity of his characters Not only do they come alive for the reader but they also take so many different roles in the process Their simple acts of kindness often end up being impressive and life changing I d noticed this about so many characters in The Book Thief and I feared it was a one time deal but Ed might be the best of them all In complete contrast to the ending Ed is one of the most real and tangible characters I ve ever stumbled upon The fact that he s completely unaware of how extraordinary he is just adds to his charm My only regret is that the same cannot be said about Audrey I really needed her to be just as well developed but she was the only one who didn t feel real to me and that s the sole reason for my 4 star rating I Am the Messenger will make you happy in at least three ways it will give you a truly authentic approachable story that will go straight through your heart it will make you examine the way you treat complete strangers and it will catch you completely off guardI wish I could hold up that knife and tear open the world I d slice it open and climb through to the next one In bed I cling to that thoughtI suppose many people will not be comfortable with the ending I thought it was unexpected brilliant like the man himself mind blowing still picking up the pieces and audacious It didn t take anything from the story it didn t diminish the importance of any of the characters and it added an extra dose of memorability the book wouldn t necessarily have otherwise Choosing a favorite uote this time was just like choosing a favorite child but there was one I needed to shareWhat would you do if you were me Tell me Please tell me But you re far from this Your fingers turn the strangeness of these pages that somehow connect my life to yours Your eyes are safe The story is just another few hundred pages of your mind For me it s here It s now I have to go through with this considering the cost at every turn Nothing will ever be the sameFor this and of our reviews visit The Nocturnal LibraryThanks to the lovely Jasprit for reading this with me

    I can't seem to get enough Zusak Once again his language is magic Instead of falling into the he or she said pitfall the dialogue takes on the action of the predominant emotion If he wants to reach for a friend the words reach And the way he breaks his sentences to evoke emotional pauses is poetic Plus it makes his stories delectably uick to read The perfect combination of length and pause But his prose is not even the most powe

    I knew nothing about this book going in other than that it was by The Book Thief author I probably never would have tried it without that being the case so it does pay off to have one big bestsellerThis odd little story is touted as a Young Adult book Um I mean I guess it could be but it doesn't really feel like one All of the main characters are adults and the story doesn't stand out to me as something that would specifically appeal to
