Like Like. Oops and I meant to make a point about metafiction. Two novels that I love that use this device are Atonement and Life of Pi. I know people who hated these books — and usually for precisely this reason.

I think some readers do not like their fictional world to upended, they want to get lost in the world and, in a sense, believe it. Like Liked by 2 people.

I am the Messenger by Markus Zusak - review

I think this is one you would have gotten a kick out of Sue. Whereas the Nicholas Sparks one I mentioned was more clumsy. Really a novel with elements of metafiction in the prologue and epilogue only. Good review Theresa. I was thinking about getting my hands on a copy and then read Bridge of Clay instead. As a Book Thief fan, I was looking forward to his latest very much.

I suspect I am in a minority when I say I was underwhelmed. I have heard that Bridge of Clay is hard work. What a shame you picked that one as you might have liked The Messenger more.

Parents say

And thank you, I was a little nervous about this review. This is so like my own experiences with colleagues at work, though alas, without the same pleasing outcome.

Thank goodness The Messenger was at the opposite end of the spectrum!

It was so drab and boring, so I switched to the book, and it remains one of my favourite reads. It was magical. Keep it on the back burner! However, I love this narrator and will even look out for other books narrated by him. How funny! PS I love this book so much.

I have 30mins left to go. Will miss Ed very much.

PPS Will read The book thief one day. I live in hope then that I might still find a good audio to enjoy. I confess.


I have The Book Thief. I am curious as to why your friends suggested to begin with The Messenger.

Loved the Supernatural reference — always relevant! I think it was the ending that made them recommend it to me.

How well do we really let ourselves know each other? I read the Book Thief by Markus Zusak over a year ago and absolutely loved it! It was one of my top 10 books I read in , so I knew I had to continue reading his works.

The plot was unique and well thought out; the author has a remarkable ability to create great hard-hitting books. There was a message written within the book and it was just beautiful and inspiring! Markus Zusak still manages to fit humour into the novel and that makes the book all that more enjoyable, seriously I loved the conversations between Ed and his dog! As for the characters, I felt something for each of them. Ed, I just loved, he was lost and lonely and I instantly connected with him.

He might be one of my favourite all-time protagonists. His character development throughout the book was very well done and I think he was my favourite!

Despite not having big parts of the story, they had great character development and by the end I was rooting for them all! Especially Marv, his story just touched me! Overall, this book was spectacular! It had everything a book should have, humour, a message, a journey and great characters!Will Audrey love the man he has become? Children's literature portal.
