3 Quotes 3 Days: Day Three!

Well this is the last quote from the tag and if you haven’t read the other two over the last two weeks go check them out now!

Now that you have read my other two posts are you ready for the last one?

Once again this isn’t a particularly well know book from what I am aware of but it has been made into a film that is very well done (in my opinion)

This quote is from The Giver by Lois Lowry which is actually part of a series and the next three books are:

-Gathering Blue

-Messenger

-Son

I discovered these books around a year ago and I have read them at least three times. This quote is from the key moment of The Giver:

Chapter Eight, page 80-

“I know,” she said in her vibrant, gracious voice, “that you are all concerned. That you feel I have made a mistake” (…) “I apologise to my community.”

From this I am aware you are unable to gave really what the book is about apart from a robot ish lady talking to her community so here is the blurb:

Intelligence. Integrity. Courage. Wisdom. These are all qualities a Receiver of Memory must have. And one more which can only be named, but not described. The Capacity to See Beyond.

Jonas lives safely within the community, a place where there is no war, no hunger and no pain. But when he is selected as the Receiver of Memory, he starts to discover dark secrets that will lead him to undertake an incredible journey…

That concludes my tag and I hope you enjoyed reading my posts. As ever, Always ready to type… Embumblex
