I just love this book. I finished it yesterday and I was so happy. I am the Messenger is such a great story. I don't know where a young author like Markus Zusak get his ideas from, but they are so fulfilling and real. Honestly I'm kind of shock that this book was in the young adult section, but it's not worse than some of the movies and music videos that are out for the young nowadays, and at least the book has a message. The ending wasn't what I expected. I think the ending would have happened, but not as fast as it did. It should have been different. I recommended it to everyone.
