It's very hard to describe Messenger without giving away parts of The Giver and Gathering Blue. This is the third book in that trilogy. So I'm not going to say anything about the book, other than I enjoyed it very much but consider it to be the weakest of the three. It was nice to have a sequel that wrapped up (somewhat) the other two titles.

Such a great book! This is a bit different than the one that came before it, in that it's darker and definitely more enjoyable for older audiences. (In my opinion, the other two were more suitable for younger audiences.) The story is really touching, though. Definitely my favorite of the three.

This book completes the trilogy (The Giver, Gathering Blue, Messenger). While I loved The Giver, and enjoyed Gathering Blue, Messenger left me a bit disappointed. This book did touch upon things that happened in The Giver, which was great. I do suggest reading all 3 in order, but be prepared that The Giver is the best in the trilogy.
