I am the Messenger. Can't believe it took me so long to get to this. Loved Book Thief so should have known this would become one of my all time favourites too. Beautiful story, beautifully written. Moving and motivating. Great use of voice. 10/10

"It kills me that they die by my hand. But not even my own hand, just by me. They don't die if a wound or illness, they die by me. Cause of death:Shark. I am no longer a person. I'm only a cause of death."
