    I did love this book, I was so happy to find out what happened to Jonas and Gabe after the heartbreaking ending of The Giver One criticism is that while I found the sub plot of the Trademart to be very interesting it seemed to just fade off without any explanation Where did the Trader come from How was he able to take a persons inner most selfwas it magic Kira, Leader and Matty all seem to have magical powerswhere did their powers come from Their world seems to be oursthere are ref I did love this book, I was so happy to find out what happened to Jonas and Gabe after the heartbreaking ending of The Giver One criticism is that while I found the sub plot of the Trademart to be very interesting it seemed to just fade off without any explanation Where did the Trader come from How was he able to take a persons inner most selfwas it magic Kira, Leader and Matty all seem to have magical powerswhere did their powers come from Their world seems to be oursthere are references to Shakespeare and periods of our history But we have no magic, so where did it come from I liked the allegorical aspect of people trading what is really important their souls in return for things like the removal of a birthmark, being taller, younger, less, bald, better looking, pretty furniture, a slot machine It seems to speak to our own society where being beautiful is valued over kindness and intelligence just watch an episode of Real Housewives of anywhere Where people ...

    This one starts to tie things together and characters from the previous two books are back again But overall Eh. This one follows Matty as he lives his new life in Village Several years have passed since Gathering Blue He has lost his uneducated slang way of speaking and now talks totally normal He pretty much has a completely different personality He has been civilized Not that it s a bad thing, but I definitely noticed a huge change The plot of this very short book less than 200 pa This one starts to tie things together and characters from the previous two books are back again But overall Eh.

    Here s the second companion piece to The Giver I liked this one better than the first, Gathering Blue Actually, it had potential to be a great book, but it s like Lowry forgot her plot lines and things just fell off at the end of the book The first two books, The Giver and Gathering Blue deal with utopian societies This book ...

    I m a bit torn on this I didn t enjoy it as much as I did the two previous novels in this series, but it had such a powerful ending and the extreme geek in me was so excited that it united all three of the books together in such a good way It s just hard for me.Matty didn t appeal to me as much as Jonas or Kira had in the previous novels, and while his struggles were interesting I felt it focused entirely too much on the journey through the forest while I was really wanting to knowab I m a bit torn on this I didn t enjoy it as much as I did the two previous novels in this series, but it had such a powerful ending and the extreme geek in me was so excited that it united all three of the books together in such a good way It s just hard for me.Matty didn t appeal to me as much as Jonas or Kira had in the previous novels, and while his struggles were interesting I felt it focused entirely too much on the journey through the forest while I was really wanting to knowabout what was going on in Village as well as how exactly things were progressing in Kira s village that was featured in Gathering Blue at the end of that it s in a pretty big mess, but we never get a real idea of HOW i...
