Review of The Giver by Lois Lowry.

What I thought:
On the cover of my copy of The Giver an author has stated that "It will haunt you  days after you've turned the last page" and that is exactly what happened to me.
I was thrown into an entirely new kind of writing and story, a story that is amazingly written and heart wrenching at the same moment.
If you plan to read this book, make sure you'll be fully ready for it, and don't try to read for a few days after you've finished it, because it will still be with you; I think I even had a dream about it one day.

The Giver is an amazing book written by an amazing author and I am ashamed to say, I haven't read any more of her work yet.
The Giver is book one in a series (I only just found that out! How funny!), it is followed by Gathering Blue and the last book in the series is called Messenger.
And it is also rumored that a movie is being made! How cool!

Thanks for reading and let me know what you think!
