SPOILERS: Some small spoilers, nothing big. If you have not read THE GIVER this review will not make any sense to you.

The world Ms. Lowry had created, this world that Kira inhabits is cruel and savage. It discards the physically flawed and weak. At first you may think it has no connection to the world of the giver. As you read it you discover the similarities. I finished this book not knowing the connection between the life Kira lives and the world created in The Giver. But I was intrigued and wanted to find out. I confess I read some ‘spoilers’, so I knew that in the later books a connection is made.

Since I don’t want to give anything away, let me just say that if you enjoyed The Giver you will most likely enjoy this book. It is not a sequel, exactly but it is connected. As in the Giver, there is a Keeper of Memories, there is a Singer here, who once a year recites the history of the land; there are Guardians here, they maintain as much control over the lives here as the Guardians in the Giver. If you want to know how, you must read the book.

About Belleza

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES. I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes. I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads.. I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet. And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
