I am the Messenger-Markus Zusak

I am the Messenger by Markus Zusak was an excellent book. The first chapter is the best and keeps you wanting more. The message in this book is a good one for people. The book is heartfelt, meaningful, funny, suspenseful, etc. I really could list about a million adjectives, but I would rather you just read it and decide on your own.

The book starts out with Ed and his friends in a bank during a bank robbery. Hilarious as it is the worst bank robbery ever. Ed becomes a hero after he gets the robber, but to him he isn't because he is stuck in the small town he grew up in and is nothing more than an underage cab driver. Then he receives an Ace of diamonds in his mailbox with addresses listed. He knows that people need his help and he starts on his journey. The journey takes him to help people as well as learning about himself.

The characters in this book are great even the dog, Doorman. Markus Zusak really knows how to write rootable characters that you want to keep learning about. Can't wait to try more of his books.
