Book 91/100 - The Giver by Lois Lowry

I have nothing negative to say about this book. It's perfect for younger readers (if my nephew hadn't decided that 'books are dumb' i'd be giving it to him) and as an adult, I found it enjoyable. The writing is clever, sparse and pretty powerful. A little rushed towards the end, but I can live with it.
I read some of Lowry's books when I was younger and I really wish this had been one of them. But still, I'm glad I read it now. I mean the YA book market is saturated with dystopian fiction so it made a nice change to read something older but more well crafted and far less melodramatic.

I liked it and I believed it and I almost cried at one point. It was definitely worth the read.10/10.
