Description
(Newbery Medal Winner included) In 1993, Lois Lowry's powerful, provocative Newbery Medal winner The Giver introduced young adult readers to a bizarre, colorless future (and inspired the 2014 motion picture starring Brenton Thwaites and featuring Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep). Twelve-year-old Jonas lives in a seemingly ideal world of peace and conformity; only when he is given his life assignment as the Receiver of Memory, under the tutelage of the Giver, does he begin to understand the terrible secrets of his fragile community, and the true cost of their contentment. Lowry left Jonas's fate undetermined, and two related novels, Gathering Blue (2000) and Messenger (2004), followed. Finally, in Son, published in 2012, Lowry's saga achieves a resolution, and the four books are now known as the Giver Quartet. This handsome omnibus edition is presented in a silver cover embossed in red, with red page edges and a ribbon marker.

"It's difficult to imagine, in our post-Hunger Games world, how unusual and unsettling it was [in 1993] for a children's book to touch on euthanasia, suicide and murder.... In many ways, Lowry invented the contemporary young adult dystopian novel.... With Son, she's woven these three disparate worlds together, heroes and fates colliding in a final, epic struggle ... a quiet, sorrowful, deeply moving exploration of the powers of empathy and the obligations of love."NYTBR
