Review: The Giver by Lois Lowry
Review: A favorite since I first read it in high school, I come back to it every few years. This time, I read it because we watched the recent movie. Which changed too much of the book to be good, despite holding mostly true to the theme. The book, however, using simple language to create a complex world, a world that seems possible. Worth reading.
