I agree entirely - I really like additional media in books and I loved Max's story as well - drawings and text both - I love how it gives extra depth to the story!
Max really was an inspiration, his story was so different to anything I've ever read that could vaguely be said to fall into the same genre. The book he wrote was something I really enjoyed that the author put in. I really love it when there are other medias in a book, such as pictures/photos and inserted creations by the characters.Maz
I agree - Death gives you plenty of advance warning on what is about to happen, but it is still really shocking and devastating when it does! [act]hugs[/act] To me that really demonstrated Markus Zusak's skill as a writer - he tells you what's going to happen but you keep reading because you want to know how it all happens - and then it really hits you when it does! Actually, I think his style of writing is one of my favourite aspects of the book!
I just finished it. And I am absolutely bawling, the last few chapters were just devastating :-/HotD
