Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry review (The Giver 2)

Hi Guys
Today I am reviewing 'Gathering Blue' by Lois Lowry.


In her strongest work to date, Lois Lowry once again creates a mysterious but plausible future world. It is a society ruled by savagery and deceit that shuns and discards the weak. Left orphaned and physically flawed, young Kira faces a frightening, uncertain future. Blessed with an almost magical talent that keeps her alive, she struggles with ever broadening responsibilities in her quest for truth, discovering things that will change her life forever.

As she did in The Giver, Lowry challenges readers to imagine what our world could become, and what will be considered valuable. Every reader will be taken by Kira's plight and will long ponder her haunting world and the hope for the future.


I went into this book not expecting much as I had not found The Giver that great but this book was 10x better then what I expected. Gathering Blue did everything I wanted it to do and more it was free from clique and had a twist at the end. The only thing I didn't like about this book was the fact it had nothing to do with 'The Giver' but I have a feeling that that problem will be resolved in the finale novel

All in all I found this book very enjoyable and I will definitely be reading on. I give 'Gathering Blue' 4 out of 5 stars

P.S: I am sorry for not posting the past 2 days I had manage to crash blogger.
