I Am The Messenger by Markus Zusak
I began listening to I Am The Messenger on audio. Unfortunately, I was unable to renew the book and ended up finishing the last half of the book as an ebook on my phone - my first ebook because I HAD to finish this book. Through to the end of the story, I still could hear the voice of Mark Aden Gray. He was the voice of Ed, providing a rich personality to the character that Zusak created.
Ed Kennedy is one of those special characters that will stay with you for a long time. He's brutally honest and genuinely raw. He throws all his flaws out on the table, and I could not help but completely adore him. Zusak created a wonderful, wonderful story with Ed as the centerpiece. And, the last two sentences cemented I Am The Messenger as another one of my favorite books of the year.
Have you been introduced to Ed Kennedy yet? Were you as impressed as I was with Zusak's story?
