The Giver – Lois Lowry Book Review

51lO8bXV1RL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_Older than The Hunger Games and the Divergent series, Lois Lowry’s The Giver (Quartet) is a beautiful masterpiece of emotion and yearning set in a post-apocalyptic world.

This is the story of twelve year old Jonas who lives in a dystopian future where there is no war, pain, fear – and no color or emotion.  Jonas’s rebels against his job as holder of memories of both the joy – and the pain – of life.  This book was made into a movie in 2014 and while it did not draw the numbers that Divergent did, it got me interested enough to make me buy the book and read it.
