Couldn't put it down

by Steve S on May 29, 2014

I read THE GIVER, part one, and couldn't put the book down!! I followed this with the other 3 books of The Giver series and highly recommend the book(s) to all readers. I understand the movie is coming out in the summer of 2014. READ THE BOOK FIRST & enjoy the movie later. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

Fantastic story

by Jennifer N on Aug 23, 2012

When I first got the book in the mail I laughed and how small it was, It's definatly one you can finish in a day if you have the time. Once I started reading it I couldn't put it down. It's a great story. I felt the ending was left as a "you decide what happens ending" and I like that. Very well written.

a different kind of book...

by Susan S on Jan 7, 2012

It was suggested to me to read this book by a young adult man. He said that it changed his perception of how life works. I enjoyed it as it is a different sort of book that reminds one of what might be or might have been. Almost like a fantasy read..but more believable. It is one of those books whose story pops into my head weeks I would say that indicates a good book. The story helps to validate emotions, love and relationships, also the value of life. I am an older woman so I think many ages would value this story.

Discussions about The Giver


DId you now there is a sequel to this book?

This wonderful writer gave us two more to add to this exciting story: "Gathering Blue" and "Messenger" I was so surprised when I read them and love where I went with them.
