Product Description

Review

“A powerful and provocative novel”—The New York Times

“Wrought with admirable skill -- the emptiness and menace underlying this Utopia emerge step by inexorable step: a richly provocative novel.”—Kirkus, starred review

“Lowry is once again in top form raising many questions while answering few, and unwinding a tale fit for the most adventurous readers.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

“The simplicity and directness of Lowry's writing force readers to grapple with their own thoughts.”— Booklist, starred review

“The theme of balancing the values of freedom and security is beautifully presented.”— The Horn Book Magazine, starred review

She received Newbery Medals for two of her novels, NUMBER THE STARS and THE GIVER. Her first novel, A SUMMER TO DIE, was awarded the International Reading Association’s Children’s Book Award.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Rose TOP 500 REVIEWER on Aug. 2 2013

Review after reading full series:

I enjoyed the basic story but it left many questions that I foolishly thought might be answered in the following book (it IS supposed to be a series, right??). Unfortunately, I have more questions now. If I could go back a week and give myself advice, it would be "Read The Giver but don't bother with the next two, and do not expect any answers to your questions". It's a quick read - I did it in 5 hours, so it is a good "rainy Sunday, nothing on TV" book.

Looking forward to the movie adaptation. Short books tend to make excellent movies these days!
Would have enjoyed more memories to be shared.

It was an amazing book about love and differences. It is so descriptive an warming to the heart. I would recommend this book to any age rating. I think this book should become a movie.
