The Giver by Lois Lowry::: Someone recc'd this to me - can't remember who or why - but I still want to read it. ~A 5/22/2013 Finished reading this last night. As I said to the person whom I recalled had recc'd it: It truly was an amazing book. Powerful and evocative. In a way, it almost seemed like such a simple story, but what was underneath - what it lead up to...deeply thought provoking.
