19 - The Giver (The Giver Quartet #1)

Title:The Giver (The Giver Quartet #1)
My Area of Interest: Found out a movie is being made about this book, so I wanted to read it first, didn't know it was a series.
Finished 02/22/14 -It was a bit slow at first, but then again, you do have to set the scene.  It's another of the utopian society books, but it was a good fast read.  *Spoiler* The ending did rather tick me off, I didn't know if it really ended or not.  It leaves you guessing if he makes it or he's dead.  Second book didn't help at all, but the third book does finally let you know.  On a side note, Taylor Swift is the third highest paid in this movie, and if the movie stays close to the book, her scene would only be about 5 mins long.  It is a bit weird that both the main characters are not in the top 3 billed cast.  I'm looking forward to seeing how they do this one.  With the hype over other utopian society books/movies, "Hunger Games", "Divergent", etc it will be interesting to see how this movie plays out, and if they do all 4 books in the series or just this one.
