I loved having all of the books in one spot - where I could move from one to the next! And while its not always clear how the next book fits into the Quartet, give it a shot - its worth it in the end.

This quartet started with a book of a freedom chaser. Line per line, it keeps the reader wanting to finish it and to never put it down. The stories are not without their teaching, and learning without its sentiment. It's simply enthralling. You would want to read it over and over again.

It was an awesome read. And having the ability for all four books in one volume was wonderful. Each book was more like a short story anyway so the 1 volume brought each of the stories together as I think they should be. Why anyone would want to read the Hunger Games or Divergent series- this is by far the superior read!

So does this have all the giver books? Please answer soon because i read the first one for english class but i really want to see what happens.

Lois Lowry does such a good job of weaving all the stories together and having them all together in one book was brilliant - I read one right after the other! The reason for 4 stars instead of five was the rushed ending of the last book, a little disappointing after the journey of 4 books. But still a good fantasy read I couldn't put down.

Love all the books in this series, but The Giver is my favorite. Very well written and thought provoking. These are books that have stuck with me for years and years and it is great that they are now all available in one book. Real space saver for my already cramped book shelf!

The giver series was an amazing read! Though when you reach the second and third book do not be alarmed, it can be a little confusing but once you read the forth and final book you will be mind blown when you see everything connected so perfectly and will make you go WOW great book will most likely read this again when ever I want to smile at an authors awesomeness

Well written and thoughtful, this quartet tells a beautiful story. I love the themes in each story - the value of human life, no matter how different you are; the longing for family, etc. Did not want it to be over. You really need to read all 4 stories for complete satisfaction. So many books do not leave you satisfied, but this one does the job!

Loved The Giver when I read it in 7th or 8th grade. It was my introduction to dystopian novels, and the characters, imagery and society always stayed with me. As an adult I have loved seeing the universe expanded and to see what came of Jonah and Caleb.

I loved the books and enjoyed how clearly the characters and communities were interwoven from one book to the next. The depth and thoroughness of these stories are rich and express the human experience from the perspectives of the different characters beautifully. I would love to read a sequel and a prequel to these stories and I hope the author will consider extending the series.
