Review: The Giver

The Giver
The Giver by Lois Lowry

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Kind of a 1984 spin off.
I haven't seen the recent movie.
Social critique of collectivism, sameness, and extreme equality.
Lowry does a great job gradually making the reader aware of the deprivations that come with sameness.
The pro-life message is fairly strong, regarding the very young and old.

Worth the read, and good for middle/high schoolers, too.
