Customer Review

on December 28, 2004
I have thoroughly enjoyed this series of novels by Lois Lowry. Beginning with The Giver, then Gathering Blue and now Messenger, this is a fantastic group of books that can be read individually or in their rightful order. Not until I reread Messenger did I see how these three books fit together. The overlapping characters and themes make these great reads for older junior high and even adults. I despise those teachers who use these books in fourth and fifth grade classrooms. The students may be able to read the words, but they will not comprehend the idea of creating a utopia and the consequences inherent to that. Some adults can't truly "get" these books. The Messenger is a fantastic story that can be read and reread. I would highly recommend this book and the others mentioned above.
