Book Review| I Am The Messenger

Hey everyone! It’s Sunday and I’m actually doing a post. Today I am finally reviewing I Am The Messenger by Markus Zusak; author of The Book Thief. This is a teen book and a brilliant one at that. Let’s get started!


Title: I Am The Messenger

Author: Markus Zusak

Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Young Adult

# of pages: 360

My Rating: 5/5 stars

Goodreads Rating: 4.09/5 stars

Amazon Rating: 4.3/5 stars

Goodreads Summary:

Ed Kennedy is an underage cabdriver without much of a future. He’s pathetic at playing cards, hopelessly in love with his best friend, Audrey, and utterly devoted to his coffee-drinking dog, the Doorman. His life is one of peaceful routine and incompetence until he inadvertently stops a bank robbery.

That’s when the first ace arrives in the mail.

That’s when Ed becomes the messenger.

Chosen to care, he makes his way through town helping and hurting (when necessary) until only one question remains: Who’s behind Ed’s mission?


My Thoughts:

From page one, I Am The Messenger had me glued to the pages. There was so much suspense and action. As it progressed, new characters were introduced in such detail that I felt like I knew them. Ed Kennedy, the main character is such a great guy! At first I was confused about The Doorman. I thought it was an actual doorman… really it’s Ed’s old dog. Once the first card arrives, Ed’s life is turned upside down. For the better and the worse. I loved this book to bits. There was so much imagery and detail to it. You felt what Ed felt in each and every situation. I without a doubt recommend this book!!
