Messenger was really showed me what all three books in the loose trilogy really meant. It showed me what happened to Jonas, Kira, and Matty. Messenger revealed that Jonas' world was capable of change. It began the long process of returning the world to a state of goodness. It left me thinking. That's what I liked about the book; it made think about the world and what could happen in the future.
