1 of 5 Must-Skip Stars – Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry.

This book is bullshit. After reading The Giver, I expected some answers, goddamnit. Did they survive? Or, did they freeze to death? Did our hero sled his way to another bizarre society, or did he end up in the real, normal world?

None of those questions are answered. In fact, none of the characters from the first book are even mentioned in this second book. It’s fucking bullshit.

It’s just a story of some stupid orphan girl, who happens to have a gift for making things. So, the powers that be take her and make her their slave girl, so she can repair their sacred quilt, or whatever.

That’s pretty much it. That’s the story. Nothing compelling about it at all. Just a bullshit pagan story. I don’t fucking care one bit. I want answers, goddamnit!

Yes, it was a well-written story. But no, it was not worth reading. If you’re going to read this series, just skip this one. It doesn’t change a fucking thing. You’re not going to miss anything at all.

The next two books in this series are fascinating, but this one just doesn’t belong. It’s completely out of place, and I wish I could strike it out of existence. It’s that bad.
