First Thought when Finished: The Giver by Lois Lowry was just as good as I remember the second time around!
Read It File It Thoughts: This is one of those books that I haven’t read in a very long time but since the movie was coming, I decided to give it a second read. I am so glad that I did! I had forgotten just how deep this little book was (really it isn’t a very long read at all). It has all the elements: emotion, conflict, and growth. The only downside to me is the ending. I had forgotten just how open-ended it really was though it was perfect for the story.
Final Thoughts: This is a book that I would recommend to anyone!
