En savoir plus sur l'auteur

Lois Lowry est née en 1937 à Honolulu, dans l'île de Hawaï. Elle vit entre Boston et une vieille ferme à la campagne. Avant de se consacrer entièrement à son métier d'écrivain, elle a travaillé comme journaliste indépendante, écrivain et photographe. Son amour pour les enfants l'a poussée tout naturellement à écrire pour eux. " Partout où je me trouve, dit-elle, que ce soit dans un restaurant, à l'aéroport ou dans une école, je regarde les enfants, j'observe leur comportement et je les écoute parler entre eux. Je me rappelle les événements que j'ai vécus, alors que mes deux garçons et mes deux filles étaient encore jeunes et ces souvenirs inspirent les thèmes de mes livres. " Elle compare les livres à des torrents qui dégringolent des montagnes emportant avec eux cailloux et filets d'eau qui viennent petit à petit les transformer en rivières. À l'instar des rivières, les livres se nourrissent de souvenirs, d'images, de blessures et ce faisant « ouvrent les portes d'un Ailleurs ». On doit, entre autres, à Lois Lowry, outre "Le Passeur" et "Compte les étoiles", la série des Anastasia, traduite par Agnès Desarthe. Ses livres sont traduits en huit langues et certains d'entre eux ont donné lieu à des films.

"I have great honor. So will you. But you will find that is not the same as power." 28 juin 2014
Par E. A Solinas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Dystopian teen fiction is pretty hot right now, with blockbusters like "The Hunger Games" and "Divergent." But the grandaddy of them all was "The Giver."

And long before it became chic, Lois Lowry produced a hauntingly memorable quartet of stories set in a world where emotions are suppressed and people with gifts are imprisoned. The four books are loosely tied together -- the first and last most tightly -- and mingle fantasy and science fiction, with haunting prose and some very strong characters, as well as a message of compassion and acceptance.

In "The Giver," Jonas lives in a rigid, joyless community where people use emotion-deprivation pills and adhere to insanely strict rules -- they have no conflict, poverty or discrimination... but they also have no love, no fun, and no creativity. When Jonas is selected as the Receiver of Memories, he is suddenly flooded with feelings and memories of both the good and the bad from humanity's distant past.

And as he comes to realize what his people have lost in their quest to be the same, Jonas begins yearning for the world he knows must exist outside the Community. But his quest becomes a more personal one when he discovers another price for the Community's existence: the "release" of babies that they don't deem good enough. The only one who can change the Community is Gabe.

"Gathering Blue" introduces us to Kira, a young girl born with a deformed leg in another community that leaves disabled or sickly people to die in the Field of Leaving. She is only kept alive because of her skill with embroidery and weaving, so she can make the Singer's robe. As she comes to realize the horrible flaws in her village's way of life, Kira must make an important decision -- stay and try to improve things, or leave for a place that would welcome her?

"Messenger" was somewhat controversial upon its release, since some fans of "The Giver" felt that it "ruined" the bleak ending they had imagined for the first book. In takes place in Village, a community made up of outcasts, misfits and disabled people, ruled by the kindly Leader. But the Village is surrounded by Forest, a terrifying and deadly forest that kills those who venture into it -- and though the awkward teen boy Matty has been able to go there, it is now growing darker and twisted. As the Village begins to close itself off from the outside world, Matty finds that he may be the only one who can save them all.

"Son" takes us back in time to Claire, a young woman whose entire purpose is to produce babies for the Community -- and her child is the sickly baby boy known as Gabe, who vanishes with Jonas into the great unknown. Her desperation to find her son inspires her on a years-long quest to find him -- and a Faustian pact with a terrible figure who only wants suffering.

Pretty much all young-adult dystopian fiction owes a debt to the Giver Quartet -- it has young people discovering the cruelty and callousness of their societies, and finding different ways to rebel. But Lowry doesn't shy away from asking the serious questions in her story, such as lack of respect for life (if it's inconvenient or doesn't fit in), kindness, compassion, and the good AND bad roots of what it means to truly live.

Lowry's writing is simple but poetic, winding through with some quietly eloquent language ("Now, on this shattered morning, he felt nothing but knots and snarls under his fingertips"). And she fills the stories not with bombast and battle, but with tragedy and quiet triumph -- and while the story is in a future world fragmented into multiple civilizations, there's a hint of the fantastical as well. Think special powers, the mysterious Trademaster, and whatnot.

And she creates a varied collection of characters. All of them are tied together into a story that culminates in "Son," and they all have the theme of seeking to improve the cruel, callous worlds they were in -- Jonas by leaving the Community to the memories they are trying to avoid, Kira by staying and working, and Matty through self-sacrifice. Claire is the odd duck out, a young woman adrift in the world, desperate to find her baby.

"The Giver Quartet" is a haunting memorable collection of novels, some of which inspired the current widespread dystopian novels. Rich, haunting and well-written.

Great Boxset! 1 juillet 2014

The entire set is great! Absolutely no complaints! As of writing this I have read The Giver, Gathering Blue, and The Messenger from this set! I am currently half way through Son, and the paper is sturdy with good weight. The dust jackets and hard cover are of good quality too! I would defiantly recommend this set!
