The Giver Quartet

I recently finished reading The Giver Quartet.  The Giver, which is the first of the four books, has had renewed popularity recently with the release of the movie.  I hadn't read it in school, so I wanted to know what it was all about.  Reading the four books was more of a commitment than I normally take on, but I'm so glad I did.  The last book of the set, Son, was my favorite, and probably one of my favorite reads ever!  I don't want to give anything away, but, if you have read The Giver, I would definitely recommend that you read on through the rest of the books.

Side note...after I started reading this I realized that it was by Lois Lowry who also wrote Number the Stars, which was a childhood favorite of mine.  I quickly re-read that too, and I enjoyed it even now as an adult.  For a story that is set in such an awful time in history, I found it to be so positive and encouraging.
