Messenger is a sequel to the book "Gathering Blue" and are both written by Lois Lowry Matt who was once a young boy who grew up in a village but now he is Matty and lives with the blind man named Christopher. It has been six years since he has come to the Village and now the Village is changing and the Forests are changing and it is all due to the people in the Village. People have been trading things to get what they really want and people began to get much more selfish and greedy. The leader of the Village has tried to do something so he has given Matty the job to deliver a message to every town and tell them what the Village is doing.

I recommend this book for teens ages 11-18 because his is a teen book and has a lot of adventure and I think that teens like to read adventure books, event though this was a good adventure book I think that there are a few things about the plot that the author should change. The author left the book as a cliff hanger and I was really into the book, but it just stopped right there and I just couldn't believe it I wanted to know what happened next. If the author continued to write I would had given it a 5/5 stars. The character and writing style is the best and I like to read books written by Lois Lowry because there is a mysteries that are connected with each other. Overall I thought that Messenger was a good book because there were a lot of parts where I saw it connect back with "The Giver" and "Gathering Blue" and that there could be a mystery that could be solved. That's why I like this book.
Matty, six years after leaving his life of mischief and stealing, was living with the blind man in Village, a town where the handicapped and misfits have a place to stay. Matty had grown to be a fine young man, found love with the schoolteachers daughter, and was a devout messenger. When the town decided that no more wanderers would be allowed to live in Village, Leader sent Matty on a journey. To deliver the messages that Leader gave him and to get to the blind mans daughter, Matty had to walk through Forest, the deadly forest that had killed so many people. Matty wasnt afraid, but now Forest is changing&
Messenger was& beautiful. Matty gave himself willingly, traded for all that he loved and valued. I adore this book so much that it will never collect dust, for I will be taking it off my shelf and reading it all the time. The characters from Gathering Blue and The Giver meet in this wonderful read. Author Lois Lowry has astounded me once more with her likable characters and the fast pace of the storyline. I actually did cry at the end of this book, which makes this the second fictional book I have ever cried over. Readers of all genres will enjoy reading this tale of love, adventure, and loss.
This companion to THE GIVER and GATHERING BLUE focuses on Matty, a formerly wild young boy who has forged a new life for himself in the community known as Village. Now living with Kira's blind father, who is known as Seer, Matty is proud to live in Village, a place where strangers have always been welcomed, and where people treat each other with respect and kindness. Recently, though, something dark and evil has permeated Village. To read what happens next read this awesome book! I really loved this book so much and I'm sure that everyone else will also
