The Giver (Graphic Novel) | Lois Lowry
4 posts | 6 read | 3 to read
The Giver is a modern classic and one of the most influential books of our time. Now in graphic novel format, Lois Lowry’s Newbery Medal–winning classic story of a young boy discovering the dark secrets behind his seemingly ideal world is accompanied by renowned artist P. Craig Russell’s beautifully haunting illustrations. Placed on countless reading lists, translated into more than forty languages, and made into a feature film, The Giver is the first book in The Giver Quartet that also includes Gathering Blue, Messenger, and Son. In this new graphic novel edition, readers experience the haunting story of twelve-year-old Jonas and his seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment, through the brilliant art of P. Craig Russell that truly brings The Giver to life. Witness Jonas's assignment as the Receiver of Memory, watch as he begins to understand the dark secrets behind his fragile community, and follow the explosion of color into his world like never before.

Very faithful adaptation. My favorite part is Russell‘s use of color - the black and white world is more monotone, with a feeling of sameness, and the color shifts are subtle and fitting. If you like the book, you‘ll like this one.

A beautifully faithful adaptation of one of my all-time favorite novels. P. Craig Russell does an excellent job of presenting a world of Sameness while still providing engaging art. It is certainly a different (somewhat lesser) experience from reading the novel, but I think it can successfully exist along side the book.
