First Sentence:

Matty was impatient to have the supper preparations over and done with.

Recommend: Yes. If you've read the first two you will probably want to read this one. I had hoped for more about the main characters in The Giver and Gathering Blue, instead some of the characters were completely missing and never mentioned at all. I wasn't thrilled with the fanciful ending either. I think I would have enjoyed the story more as a stand-alone but with it being tied into the previous two I just expected more from it.


  1. I thought this one was the weakest of the three as well. I really enjoyed this set of books!
