i am the messenger notes

Books don't make me cry, but The Book Thief did all sorts of unspeakable things to my emotions. Ed has no clue who's behind the cards, or what the purpose of all this is but he carries on, unwittingly improving the lives of all the other ordinary people around him and in the process coming to understand himself, his mother, his friends and the girl who is the object of his desire on a deeper level. In the cemetery, Ed met Daryl and Keith for the last time. To really imbue them with meaning and import. I personally felt the ending took the book from being outstanding to a book that was engaging, and interesting with a disappointing conclusion.

I Am the Messenger by Markus Zusak

i am the messenger notes

The beginning- what a hilarious opening. Nineteen year old cab driver Ed Kennedy foils a bank robbery and soon finds himself receiving cryptic messages in the mail written on playing cards. Finally, on Bell Street he meets an old man named Bernie Price who runs an antiquated theater. After discussing it, Ed convinces him to travel to her house, and although Suzanne's father angrily claims that he brought shame upon the family, the two eventually reconcile and Marv is reconnected with Suzanne and their daughter. I thought it was wonderful. He's sent to an Italian restaurant where his mom is having dinner with some guy. I also fear that nothing really ends at the end.

So I think that's enough from me, cause I feel like if I continue I'll start getting emotional, and I wouldn't want that. He hasn't done anything remarkable in his life. Zusak is indeed a magnificent storyteller. Yes, you too are now the messenger and the message! I greatly enjoyed this book, especially the ending. But that's just me, and the two other people I loaned the book to.

Marv told Ed that he spent the money for his child with Suzanne. He died while serving his country. Then Ed thinks about how he's actually alive and living now, and doesn't want to die. Clearly the author has amazing talent, he wrote this one just prior to the Book Thief. He used the gun to force the husband to leave the town and stop torturing the wife.
