Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.
The Giver Quartet (The Giver, Gathering Blue, Messenger, and Son) by Lois Lowry is a compilation of four books written over almost a decade. The books beautifully capture dystopian societies, describing the menacing reality underneath a seemingly serene and utopian surface. I love the ethical and philosophical questions the books raise, and I love the open endings. Both leave the reader – even an adult reader – with a lot to think about.
