So, finally, after all this holiday craziness, I finally got to sit down and read. I couldn’t have picked a better book to end the year with.
In “I Am The Messenger” by Markus Zusak, Ed Kennedy is an underage taxi driver who honestly has no plans for his life. And he’s okay with that. Yet, when he prevents a bank robbery right in his hometown, things change. Soon, Ed Kennedy begins to get these “messages” which are more like riddles on the Aces of ordinary playing cards. Throughout this book, Ed goes through an Ace of each of the four suits in a card deck, and as he does so, he learns an important lesson: even the smallest thing can impact a person’s life.
I officially have a new favorite book, and here’s several reasons why:
1) Markus Zusak teaches us one of the most important life lessons and the most subtle way possible.
2) The language of this book and the way it was written is just fantastic.
3) From the first page, you’re literally swept away by the beauty of the writing and the really strange but awesome plot.
5) The plot kind of reminds you of Charlie’s Angels, but with a guy and it’s less… you know… provocative.
But, to be honest, nerds, if you want to really know the reason why I love this book so much, pick it up and read it. It’s worth it.
I hope you guys enjoyed this review! Any book suggestions, go ahead and comment. Have a great New Year’s nerds!
Oh… and happy reading! 😉
