Author Plug: Markus Zusak

Dear Friends,

Short one tonight, because I have to wake up in four hours for work, but I just want to tell you that if you haven’t read anything by Markus Zusak, you should get on that immediately.  Although his books are marketed for young adults, do not be fooled.  They are poignant, they are powerful, they are for everyone.  I suggest reading I Am the Messenger first, and then The Book Thief.  The latter, especially, is one of the best books I’ve ever ever read.  If I could have written any book in the wide world of literary history, I would choose that one.  I actually ache inside because his writing is so beautiful.

I know you’ll love it.  I know you’ll love them both.

Best, Holly
