I Am The Messenger by Markus Zusak



I had quite a bit of trouble deciding what to say about I Am The Messenger  - not because I didn't enjoy the book – I loved it despite not expecting to from the blurb.

The author is a fabulous writer – the personality and voice of the main protagonist (Ed) is gripping and authentic right from the start.  If I tell you anything about the premise of the book, it may put you off – so I won't.

This book hits many high notes – funny, un-putdownable, you can't guess what happens next, believable despite the premise.

The author has succeeded in spades (pun intended).
