No, but they're there because the village elders say so. So Kira's an orphan, and has a twisted leg that makes it hard for her to work. She's useless in the eyes of many in the village, so she'd normally be cast out of the village to fend for herself and die , but she has a gift with sewing so she's given a special job in the Village Council House.

The strange disappearance of some members of the community, along with some other things that don't add up like the dangerous beasts one never sees begin to make her question the motives of the village elders.

I liked some of the things Lowry used to describe the village: the idea of adding a syllable onto a person's name as a sign of increased age and maturity; the way the people of the Fens talk; Matt and his little doggie.

I liked the idea of the Singer, with his robe and his staff, telling and showing the people their history; it reminded me of the scene in Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome where they used cave drawings to tell the people's history. This was a decent book which - although part of a series - can stand alone; there are issues left unresolved at the end, but Kira has set herself to fix things, so there's a sense of completion that gives a good finish to the book.

It has more of a magical twist to it then the first one. It isn't bad but it is much different.

None of the characters are the same and you have no idea they are in the same world as The Giver because it's drastically different. It's a book all its own; you can start with this book from the series and not be lost at all. It's more like The Giver and the Son could pass as their own pair, and the Gathering Blue and the Messenger as their own pair.

It didn't end the way I thought it would though I totally guessed everything that happened. Alex Jung Photo: site So you were in fourth or fifth grade when you had to read The Giver — that book with a gnarly, bearded old guy and a bright-gold medal slapped on the cover.

It looked important. For a kid, it was deep. But what happens at the end of the book?

The Singer is kind of like the Giver in the sense that he retains memories, only he wears a fancy robe with the history of the world stitched into it. How does it relate to The Giver? There are no recurring characters, but surely you can see there are similar themes. Would this make a good movie? Probably not?

Messenger What happens? Matty from Gathering Blue is the protagonist of Messenger, which takes place six years later. The Village decides to close its border, and Seer asks Matty, who has rare healing powers, to bring Kira home before that happens.
