See, I told you that wouldn’t take long. Well, here I am, done with “I am the Messenger.” Although Book Theif was better, I liked the book. It was sad, sweet, jarring, and interesting. Ed is a 19 year old cab driver, who is given names or addresses and then must discover what that person needs. To help people, he’ll do everything from buy ice cream to attempt murder. While it’s definitely not for anyone under the age of 15, I would recommend it.
