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?
"Zusak's characters, styling, and conversations are believably unpretentious, well conceived, and appropriately raw. Together, these key elements fuse into an enigmatically dark, almost film-noir atmosphere." (School Library Journal)

I had previously listened to "The Book Thief", which I found relavent to my life experience. "I Am the Messenger", started off a little slow and I was prepared to be disappointed. However, I stuck with it and I am glad I did. At the end Zusak does a marvelous job of pulling the whole thing together to offer a powerful message that we "average" people can benefit from knowing. I will recommend this book to many of my friends who enjoy a relatively profound and exceptionally clever read.

I'm sure this book has some underlaying message, but I'm not sure what it is. In spite of that, it is interesting and entertaining. Marc Aden Gray's narration is so good he made me care more for the character than I would have if I'd read it myself.
