Messenger by Lois Lowry
Messenger is a young adult fiction audiobook by author Lois Lowry. It forms the third installment of The Giver Quartet, begun by her 1993 Newbery Medal-winning novel The Giver.
Messenger Audiobook (The Giver #2) takes place about eight years after the events of The Giver and about six years after the events of Gathering Blue. Readers who were dissatisfied by the vague ending of The Giver will appreciate the glimpse of Gabe and Jonas’ important role as Leader of Village.
Matty has lived in Village and flourished under the guidance of Seer, a blind man known for his special sight. The village once 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 risk everything to make one last journey through the treacherous forest with his only weapon, a power he unexpectedly discovers within himself.
Messenger Audiobook Review
Yes, Lois Lowry has finally provided us with answers concerning Jonas and Baby Gabriel after the freakish, yet the brilliant ending of The Giver. While the plot issues with Gathering Blue weren’t resolved in this one, it stood on its own better as a story. I loved Matty in this, and all the other characters too, like Seer, Leader (who’s totally Jonas), Jean, and Kira from Gathering Blue.
The themes of immigration and acceptance, of social sickness reflecting in nature, were very well done and relevant. I wished there had been a bit more in some areas, but found myself deeply engrossed throughout and read it all in one sitting.
For a young adult, Messenger Audiobook Mp3 by Lois Lowry is a fun read. Lois Lowry does a terrific job of weaving a story, painting a complete picture. Not to give it away, but you will finally get a feel for how the world was through the three settings and the characters. You also get to meet Gabriel’s mother and see her journey as well as young Gabe, who is now a young boy. Happy reading!
