Through his journey, Ed becomes more confident in his abilities and improves as a human being. After a bit of navel-contemplatingEd decides to go on living his life.
Eventually, Ed picks up a man in his cab who tells him to drive to the river before leading Ed on a chase to a rock formation on which three names are written. When they arrive, the man refuses to pay for the trip. Gavin Rose is a fourteen-year-old jerk who hates his older brother. Then again, the story of Ed Kennedy, the underage cabdriver in Messenger, is the sort of story that leaves you wondering how much you really know.
Marv wants to go meet the child and give her his money, but he is too scared of her father. Ultimately this novel, I am the Messenger, can relate to many people, which can motivate people to find a purpose in life. The next day Ed reveals to Audrey that he only forced the rapist to leave the city, before telling her that he wishes the two of them could be together, but Audrey refuses.
The answer is surprising though not entirely credible, I thoughtbut it's the journey, and Ed's narration, that will delight the reader, and perhaps provoke some thought, too, about the value of helping others.
He tells Ritchie he is a disgrace to himself. Ed finds the Ace of Hearts on his seat in the theater, on which is written three movie titles. The first, Glory Road, has Lua Tatupu, whose family has decorated their home for Christmas with strings of broken lights, so Ed buys new ones for them and sets them up himself.
At each address and time Ed finds someone in need of help, some fun an old lady who needs some companysome harder a brutal man who abuses his wife. But the true driving force behind the novel itself is readers' knowledge that behind every turn looms the unknown presence-either good or evil-of the person or persons sending the messages.
The book is humming along, the messages have all been delivered and then the author pops in, hands Ed the manuscript for The Messenger and wanders off down the street. Ed makes a comment in the book which has stuck with me over time, and especially so in the last couple of months.
This book is also one that I have been wanting to read for a while, especially after reading The Book Thief a few years ago. He does not have a job or any ambitions, and he spends every night sitting alone in his kitchen.
