Such a great quartet series
I absolutely LOVED the trilogy of books which followed The Giver. The author really knows how to write about humanity and the importance of relationships we have with each other. I’m a huge fan of her writing and was so pleased to have read all four of these books.
After I read the first book I was left needing more so I bought all of them. As I was reading I kept thinking about a review I had read asking the author why she never had an ending. Obviously he/she didn't read them all. I enjoyed this series, great read.
The pace of this quartet ebb and flows, allowing the reader to take pause and ponder the implications of the surroundings of each character and society. While each book ended before I was ready, it allows one to consider what is next. Relationships are key to the messages found within the stories and honor, talents, and gifts enhance our unique nature and are a part of our very soul. What importance do we give honor, respect, charity, love, and independent thought and action? You will will consider these and many more principles of humanity as you join the characters on these journeys.
