9780008113490: The Giver Boxed Set: The Giver, Gathering Blue, Messenger, Son (The Giver Quartet)

THE GIVER is soon to be a major motion picture starring Jeff Bridges, Katie Holmes and Taylor Swift. Now available for the first time in the UK, THE GIVER QUARTET is the complete four-novel collection. THE GIVER: It is the future. There is no war, no hunger, no pain. No one in the community wants for anything. Everything needed is provided. And at twelve years old, each member of the community has their profession carefully chosen for them by the Committee of Elders. Jonas has never thought there was anything wrong with his world. But from the moment he is selected as the Receiver of Memory, Jonas discovers that their community is not as perfect as it seems...GATHERING BLUE is a return to the mysterious but plausible future world of THE GIVER. It tells the story of Kira, orphaned, physically flawed, and left with an uncertain future until she is summoned by the Council of Guardians. On her quest for truth that follows, Kira makes discoveries that will change her life and world forever. In MESSENGER, Matty has lived in Village and flourished under the guidance of Seer, a blind man known for his special sight. His community once welcomed newcomers, but something sinister has seeped into Village and the people have voted to close its borders to outsiders. Now Matty must risk everything to make one last journey through the treacherous forest...SON is the thrilling conclusion to THE GIVER QUARTET. When 'Water Claire' washed up on their shore, no one knew that she came from a society where emotions don't exist. That she had become a Vessel. That she had carried a Product. That it had been stolen from her body. Claire's son is out there, a young boy now. And she will stop at nothing to find her child, even if it means making an unimaginable sacrifice. Award-winning author Lois Lowry challenges readers to imagine what our world could become, how people could evolve and what could be considered valuable in this fascinating quartet of dystopian novels - now available as a four-book set.

About the Author:

Lois Lowry, author of over twenty novels and twice winner of the Newbery Medal (for The Giver and Number the Stars), was born on 20 March 1937 in Hawaii. Her father was an Army dentist and the family lived all over the world. Now divorced, she lives in West Cambridge with her dog, Bandit, and spends weekends in her nineteenth-century farmhouse in New Hampshire.

Review:

Praise for THE GIVER: "The Giver, a powerful and provocative novel, is sure to keep older children reading and thinking." New York Times "Lowry is once again in top form - raising many questions while answering few, and unwinding a tale fit for the most adventurous readers." Publishers Weekly
