Name: The Messenger
Author: Lois Lowry
Genre: Classics, Series
Rating:

For the past six years, Matty has lived in Village and flourished under the guidance of Seer, a blind man, known for his special sight. Village was a place that welcomed newcomers, but something sinister has seeped into Village and the people have voted to close it to outsiders. Matty has been invaluable as a messenger. Now he must make one last journey through the treacherous forest with his only weapon, a power he unexpectedly discovers within himself. (goodreads)

Review: This is the third book of The Giver Series. I absolutely loved every minute of this book. I never got bore and could not put it down! The book starts off with Matty and his life at the Village. He was an outsider but they welcomed him 7 years ago and he is now a good, strong, good mannered young man. We find out he has a special gift. The gift to heal. Every person gets a name, the Leader assigns them. And Matty can't wait to get his, he wants it to be Messenger since he IS the Messenger and knows Forest very well. Unfortunately, things get complicated and people start trading their personalities for material goods. This causes a change in everyone, and for the worse. Which changes the Village and the Forest. Matty must find the Seer's (a blind man who is like his father) daughter and bring her back before they close the Village to outsiders. The Forest starts changing and getting dangerous even to Matty. He is a accompanied by his puppy Frolic, who he once saved along with his mom from death when he was born. The way back is much harder though, and Matty must choose between saving the others or giving into the Forest. At last he gets his true name, Healer.


The Good: The story is so amazing! It caught me right from the start and there was never a dull moment. It is so amazingly written and beautifully done!

The Bad: Too emotional, I cried....
