Hi guys! Time for another book review, Today I’m sharing my opinion on ‘Messenger by Lois Lowry’. This is the 3rd book in the series (The Giver, Gathering Blue), I believe.
Overall I enjoyed it! The main characters are Matty & Ser. Matty is a carryover character from Gathering Blue and possibly the giver.
Matty now lives on the other side of the forest where the injured or deformed ones go. He got adopted into a house with a blind man named Ser.
Matty does a lot his new home, each person sort of has their own meaning and he delivers messages to the people and to the other side occasionally. He gets an order from the leader to go deliver messages to the other side saying the borders will be closing and no-one will be able to come across again.
Ser, turns out to have a daughter on the other side and sends Matty to get her. The forest can be very dangerous and can even kill you. Matty & the girl struggle to get through but with the help of Leader, they make it. Shortly after, Matty receives his real name.
This was so good. I like how the author carried characters over from the other books. There is one more in this series called Son which I hope to read soon.
