    " I really enjoyed this book. I liked the characters and the story. However, the author really hammered his views at you. Consumerism is bad, selling out is bad. Living pure and simple is good. In concept I liked these ideas but they were both extreme and there was no middle ground. "

    " I'm not used to Young Adult books, so it was a little light for me, but at the end I got caught up in the metaphor about society and Christ, so it was thought provoking after all. "

    " Messenger, the third installment in The Giver Series was on point! I found this novel to be very thought provoking as I have with the other Lowry novels. I was a fan of this novel because several characters that have been previously introduced in the past two novels were an integral part of this novel. There were many connections made and many lessons learned. In this novel we are taken on Matty's journey. He has a very special gift that he learns to use and "better" society. Once again, Lowry introduces us to a society that has very particular ideas of how to live. These ideas are challenged and morphed, and not always for good throughout the novel. Matty's community as well as his father figure "Seer" have helped Matty grow into a young man that embodies the strong values of honesty and truth. Matty takes these ideas and uses "his gift" which he is trying to understand to help his society. Lowry once again uses these young characters to reach not only a young or juvenile audience but also an adult audience. She continues to use ideas and concepts that are very current and relevant to today's culture and society. I continue to be captivated and enthralled by Lowry's novels and look forward to reading the last novel in The Giver series "SON" "

    " A fascinating addition, book 3 of "The Giver" series and (now I've finished Son) the one I enjoyed the best of the group of four. "
