Summarization: I Am the Messenger begins with a botched bank robbery. The gunman is so incompetent he drops his gun and steals a car that barely runs. Ed Kennedy, a directionless nineteen-year-old cab driver, picks up the gun and prevents the robber from leaving.
Review: One of the top five favorite books on my list. A funny yet gripping tale of a cab driver who receives five messages that he has to solve before he can move on to the next one. A favorite that can easily be finished within the day.
Once you start reading, you won’t want to stop until the very end. However, it will leave you with questions about the author and whether or not the character was inspired off of something or someone? You’ll have to read to find out for yourself.
If you want a book that’s a page turner and a fan favorite amongst many readers, I suggest this book.
