The Giver by Lois Lowry

Like the Hunger Games and Matched, The Giver is another of these post-apocalyptic dystopian books that is so popular these days. The difference between this and the others is its simplicity. There is no complex rebellion by the hero who deals with depression and doubt, no love story that becomes destructive, but a boy who is chosen to hold all the memories of the world before. His story is still deep and reflective though, and a captivating read. The uncertain ending was annoying, but later books in the series resolved the issue, so overall, I loved this book.
5 Stars
