Now I know why this has been recommended to me over and over by friends and strangers alike. I think this engaging and introspective novel is an allusion to the story of Jesus in the Bible and Ed Kennedy (the MC) to be a conflicted and reluctant Christ-figure (much like Harold Fry in The Unlikely Pilgrimage of HF-though he was more Pilgrim‘s Progress). I read it during an 8 hour road trip which made time fly! Book hangover!! 5/5⭐️ #LMPBC #GroupT

Readergrrl @Kimzey I just mailed it off to you. Sorry for delay, school just started and I‘ve been insanely busy. 🤪 4w
Readergrrl 1/2 I wanted to add that I think the beauty of this novel is that Ed is about as flawed as any of us, yet he manages to help so many people. He wasn‘t strong, or smart, or even particularly handsome, but he was human and grew in his capacity to empathize with others. This is what made him successful as a “messenger” in his ability to have faith in the message he carried. 4w
Readergrrl 2/2 As an atheist, I don‘t believe that Jesus was divine, but I do believe he was a real man, perhaps ordinary, but who‘s capacity to love made him extraordinary. If only more people would see that aspect of his humanity and know that we all have that capability. 4w
vonnie862 Glad you liked it! I highly enjoyed it as well! 4w

Finished this #LMPBC book from @BookishBelle

I liked the whole idea of this book. You don't often get to read high fantasy books set in the Middle East. There were some great parts and it ended with a cliffhanger, but the majority of the book dragged for me. 2⭐️

Going out to the next person soon.

Kimzey Thanks for the review! Looking forward to reading this one when my turn comes around. 1mo
vonnie862 @BookishBelle I forgot to write on the back of the book before mailing it out. Sorry! 1mo

Just finished these two delightful novels for my#Round15 #GroupT and #GroupX #LMPBC selections. School just started for me, so I hope to have them in the mail by the weekend. Also will post my reviews this weekend. Enjoyed reading these while being off the grid up in Canada this summer. Now I‘m home (came back to CT Sunday night; school started Monday) and will be back to typical Litsy garrulous self!

Kimzey Looking forward to reading I Am the Messenger! 1mo

This is between a pick and a so-so for me. I enjoyed a lot of it but got bogged down in it at times as well. That could just be my mood and work load lately. @vonnie862 This should be to you on Thursday. #lmpbc #groupt @Kimzey @Readergrrl

vonnie862 Great! I'll be looking out for it! 2mo

I just finished reading this one and wow! This was very beautiful! I highly enjoyed Ed's quest in being a messenger and touching people's lives. It had me wondering who was behind everything and had me anticipating each message. I am not so sure about the ending though. I don't think I fully understand it. 4.5⭐️

Since I didn‘t finish this title during my month with it I decided to get my own copy and… it. Is. Done. Whoo! That was crazy, but if you are in to true crime and haven‘t read it already, it is consider a classic of the genre for a reason! #lmpbc #groupt #round14

Maggie4483 It is definitely dense. I spent an entire day reading it and felt like I barely made a dent. 3mo
Patchshank Lol. I didn't get around to finishing it either. Things have been insane here 3mo
wisherwishinguponastar @Patchshank I was going to donate my copy since I was done. Do you want it? 3mo

Readergrrl I read and enjoyed I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter so much!! I haven‘t read the others, but one of my closest friends always recommends I Am the Messenger. She says it‘s one of her all time favorites. So I vote for that one, but I‘m sure I‘d be happy with any you choose! 3mo
Kimzey I loved The Book Thief, so I‘d be interested to see how I Am the Messenger compares. But I am also open to any of your selections. 3mo
BookishBelle I also read and enjoyed I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter. I am most interested in I Am The Messenger as well, though I would be happy to read any of them. 3mo
vonnie862 It looks like I am the Messenger. 3mo
Kimzey Can‘t wait! I keep seeing it mentioned, now that it‘s on my radar. 3mo
