The Verdict:'I am the Messenger' is already an international best seller and I don't think that my 'verdict' is going to change it's global recognition in any way.I liked the book anyways,though the book is intended as a 'young adult' work,this one is definitely going to put a smile on your face, no matter which age group or which nationality you belong to!
 
Synopsis:Ed Kennedy is a cab driver, who is aimless in life. He is a mediocre card player, a lousy romantic and an irresponsible son.How he finds purpose in life is what this book is all about!
 
The Good: Starts off well, there are interesting twists happening at regular intervals,the book has got all the 'ingredients' in the right amount! 

The Bad:The length is a bit too much, towards the middle portions the pace of the narrative slackens a bit,the ending is also a bit ambiguous.

RecommendationsBuy it!
