Catching Up on Markus Zusak books
Book: Getting the Girl by Markus Zusak
Book: Fighting Ruben Wolfe by Markus Zusak
After reading The Book Thief, and The Messenger, I decided I needed to read all of this author's books. These two are sort of a series, along with Underdog.... I think. I'm still looking for Underdog.
They are about Cameron Wolfe and his brother, Ruben, and the interesting, but fantastic relationship that they have. These books are gritty and rough, but with a ton of heart and lots of amazing lessons to learn. I LOVE this Cameron character and am cheering for him with all I've got!
I also LOVE Markus Zusak and his writing style. So simple, yet powerful. Very hard to describe. But gritty, like I said. I will for sure be finding the rest of what he's written so far, and keeping my eye on whatever he sends our way in the future.
Here's a link to an interview he gave with Charlie Gibson about The Book Thief. See what you think: http://abcnews.go.com/Video/playerIndex?id=1737821
