Zusak continually writes stories about people finding strength within themselves, while managing to escape the cheesiness that so often accompanies a story like that. This book was blunt and beautiful, and a wonderful read.

I can't get in to it my teacher ruined it for me by turning it in to a work assignment

Ed Kennedy is one of the most relatable, good natured, and down right honest characters I have ever read about. This book never has a dull moment, its non stop action. I love this book from the bank robbery on the very first page, to the heart warming last. Nothing can compare to this book. My favorite book in the world. ALL HAIL MARKUS ZUSAK!

I love this book. It has definitely earned a permanent position on my top ten list. Nothing but stellar.

It was a really good book. It had me thinking about what was going to happen next throughout the time that I read it. There were heart-warming moments, sad moments, and intense moments all mixed in.

The best book I have read in a long time. Zusak's writing pulls on my heartstrings almost as much as Ed's love for Audrey.

Ed captures a bank-robber and then he is considered as a "hero" in the newspaper. His life changes from that moment on : he gets unanymous cards with adresses or names. He knows he has to help those people somehow, but will he be able to do it or will he give up? After all, he's just a regular boy with no superpowers at all. Just him, a cabbdriver.

nice to read a story were the protagonist isn't some superhero, genius, incredibly good looking or whatever. He's just you're typical below the average guy who happens to be in love with his best friend. After accidently stopping a bank robbery- he constantly gets cards with adresses of people who need his help. It goes to show that even the ordinary people can do extraordinary thins.

Carefully now, her statement comes out, "Believe it or not: it takes a lot of love to hate you like this".

I'm not the messenger at all. I'm the message.
