This was a very easy to read, short, dystopian novel. It's the second of the Giver series though at this point, it could very well be a stand alone novel as as this point I see no connection to the world illuminated in the Giver.

It's going to be hard to review this without spoilers. So, briefly, it's a world set at some unspecified time in the future. This story is about a village and a girl in that village. Life is short and it is brutal. Food is scarce and people are only valued for their contribution to the village. Kira (the two-syllable girl in question) finds a new place - an unusual place - in the village after her mother's death. She has enemies. She has friends.

And she wants to find Blue.

I enjoyed reading this book. I would definitely recommend this YA book to others.

I liked this story quite a bit but it is a fragment. I believe it is longer than The Giver but it feels less complete somehow. Much like Jonas, Kira is a pre-teen discovering her purpose and place in the world while at the same time realizing that the world is not at all what it seems in the surface. ( )

A very different vibe than the The Giver, though linked in its depiction of an authoritarian society controlling people. But just not very good, really. Less coherent, less enjoyable. ( )

Classic! ( )

One of the benefits of being home during COVID is that my kids have been reading more. My 10 year old son is often reluctant to choose reading, but when he finds the right book he will devour it. This happened with [The Giver]. He read it in one morning and loved it! When he found out there were 4 books in a loose series, I bought him the rest of the set. He really liked all of them and wanted me to read them so we can discuss.

[Gathering Blue] is the second book in this quartet. It doesn't have anything much to do with [The Giver] except that it's a community where there is obviously something going on below the surface. This book follows Kira, who is discovered as a gifted sewer, and chosen to repair and later sew new material on a robe that tells their community's history. When one of her friends travels outside of their community to find plants that she can use to create blue thread, secrets are revealed.

I liked this, but it isn't as complete, either in the world building or in the plot, as [The Giver] is. My son says that if I read the next two books, things start to make more sense. So next up for me will be [The Messenger], the next in the quartet. ( )

''The Giver'' was an unforgettable, one-of-a-kind book that spoke as much to adults, myself included, as to children. The future world it depicted was rich and seductive and -- frightening thought -- completely plausible. The brute, survivalist world of ''Gathering Blue'' is much less convincing, with neither the dimension nor the subtlety of ''The Giver.'' Many of the characters in ''Gathering Blue'' are presented as either good or bad, and lack the complexity of real people.

"Mother?" There was no reply. She hadn't expected one. Her mother had been dead now for four days, and Kira could tell that the last of her spirit was drifting away.

She knew something else as well, and with the realization, she rose from the damp grass to go indoors, to find her father and tell him that she could not be his eyes. That she must stay.
