“Maybe everyone can live beyond what they’re capable of.”

–Markus Zusak

An Australian writer and an idealist of sorts where his language is magic and evokes an everlasting feeling of life and love, instead of falling into the “he (or she) said” pitfall, his dialogue takes on the action of the predominant emotions within each character. If he wants to reach for a friend, the words reach. And the way he breaks his sentences to evoke emotional pauses is poetic. He establishes the irreverent truth that people are capable of going beyond their circumstances and the woes of their present situation in order to achieve what they personally define as greatness, or perhaps their life’s calling or purpose. This ability to be able to surpass one’s foreseeable abilities and to self-actualise into a wonderful being enables us to be the heroes and saviours of our own life.
