Reviews of Gathering Blue (2000)
Review by mmsathlete27 (2007-04-06)
This is a the second book in the Giver section and, it has the same themes, skills, and techniques that the giver had, but it doesn't have anything eles to do with it. It is still a fabolous book that you have to read. Hopefully, the thrid book has some more details and connections to it. If you haven't read The Giver, you really should!!

Gathering Blue is very much like its predecessor, The Giver. The themes are very similar and the only real difference is that the society in this one is fairly primitive. I did feel that more was actually accomplished in this one than in The Giver, but it still didn't feel like a complete novel. Apparently, there will be a third book that will tie the two books together and actually flesh out the story. I can only wait. 7/10
