I read this book in 3 days so you know it kept me interested from page to page. Not at all what I expected but a great read for sure.Published 14 hours ago by Jacqueline Keesee
Written in 1993, but this story reminds me of some of the great science fiction / fantasy books of the 1940s. I really like that it comes from a child's perspective. Read morePublished 14 hours ago by K. R. Sontag
I have yet to read the book, but the title of this posting is misleading. This posting is for only The Giver, not the entire quartet as the title implies.Published 2 days ago by Loyal Amazon Customer, NY
