3.0 out of 5 stars Pales in comparison, June 9, 2006
This review is from: I Am the Messenger (Hardcover)
I recently read The Book Thief by this same author and was so moved that I HAD to pick up I Am the Messenger. I was hoping to have another amazing read, so perhaps my expectations were too high. While I felt it was still well-written with well-developed characters and an interesting storyline, I was disappointed in the end. My comment when finishing was, "Huh...that was it?" As others have noted, some of Ed's (main character) solutions to his problems were a bit too convenient and simple to be life changing and I was ready for it to be over 3/4 through. This title definitely pales in comparison to The Book Thief (which everyone should read) but I'll still try anything this author dishes out in the future.

I couldn't agree more; hard to believe that the same person that wrote "The Book Thief" wrote this.
