Summary:

Lois Lowry’s Gathering Blue continues the quartet beginning with the quintessential dystopian novel, The Giver, followed by Messenger and Son.

Kira, an orphan with a twisted leg, lives in a world where the weak are cast aside. She fears for her future until she is spared by the all-powerful Council of Guardians. Kira is a gifted weaver and is given a task that no other community member can do. While her talent keeps her alive and brings certain privileges, Kira soon realizes she is surrounded by many mysteries and secrets. No one must know of her plans to uncover the truth about her world and see what places exist beyond.

    I love the narrator's ability to change tones with the different people in the story. Her voice is soothing and appropriate for the story. The story itself unique. Not a mystery but with parts to discover. Starting off very bright it become a little darker near the end buy still wonderful.

    Good read

    Sequel to The Giver (excellent book). This book is good too, but the narration is terrible. Monotone, boring, quiet. Always made me want to go to sleep. I would rather have read it.
