Last year I had to read The Messenger
for school, and I've just finished The Book Thief
and I find thins guy amazing. Both books had a few flaws, but their originality and movingness is masterful. I didn't like The Messenger's ending
For The Book Thief, I thought that having Death as the narrator didn't work quite as well as it could. Early in the book, it just seemed like "story story story OH JUST TO REMIND YOU, I COLLECT THE SOULS OF THE DEAD story story story"
It worked better later on, but there was still an inconsistency between the times when the story was being told by a character and the times when the story was being told by an author.
I already have a hate thread. Necromancy > redundancy here, so post there
