Utopic Dystopian Pt 3

Reading Lois Lowry’s Messenger gave me much to think about along the way. Also, this is the first time we’ve gotten the indication that the stories are connected instead of their own stand-alone novels. This makes the world so much more interesting. There are so many of these community settings within what could be considered walking distance from one another.

This story follows our favorite ruffian from the previous book, Matty, as he deals with the new village he has been living in since the last book. There is not much I can talk about without giving much away within this book. Still, there is somewhat of a timeless quality about it that strikes some of the conversation topics we discuss today, such as immigration and refugees. It was interesting looking at those topics from the point of view of this universe.

I am on the last book, and I’m hoping the ending is just as beautiful that this book ended up being.
