Second in the Giver sequence
Finished: Aug. 10, 2007
Reason for Reading: next in the series
First Published: 2000
Recommend: Highly recommend. I am enjoying these books so much. This book is completely different than The Giver and has no apparent connection with it until a very brief hint is given on the second to last page. The dystopian society featured in this book is almost the opposite of the one in The Giver though one grim element is the same: Anyone who is not useful to society is disposed of. The characters in this book are very likable and I'm looking forward to meeting them again in the next, and last, book. Once again I'm left with a feeling that this book will stay with me.
