i am the messengerEarlier this year our Book club read The book thief  by Markus Zusak and enjoyed it very much.  It has been our top rating book scoring 9.  This month we will be reading another of Zusak’s books I am the messsenger.   This book is the story of Ed Kennedy, a cab driver and card player, who loves Audrey.  Ed lives a routine life in a surburban shack with his dog until one day his life is changed when he inadvertently stops a bank robbery. That is when he becomes  ” the Messenger.”  He has been chosen to care and receives his first card the ace of diamonds. All the other aces follow and Ed must work out who it is that needs help and how to help them.  And then at the end of the story there is only one question left that needs an answer. Who has chosen Ed to be the messenger?   New members are always welcome to join our group.  The November meeting will be on Monday 23rd Novmeber at 2pm and if you would like to join us on this day and need to read the book ask at the desk for your copy.
