Another masterpiece from the author of The Book Thief,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: I am the Messenger (Paperback)As other reviewers did, I bought I Am The Messenger because I read and enjoyed The Book Thief so much. To apply the description "the best book I have read" you need to be careful, because you only get to use that once. I felt that The Book Thief came close. Then I read I Am The Messenger, and maybe it is as good as The Book Thief. I disagree with the reviewer who said it is not a heart-warming tale; I think it is. It is a book that shows how, by doing some small thing for another person, you can make such a huge improvement to that person's life, and in so doing, to your own life. No other book I know of comes close to that. Well done again Markus Zusak.
