Lois Lowry is a master storyteller!
This is the second book I've listened to of Lois Lowry's. It's actually a continuation of her book, The Giver, which I've listened to again and again with great pleasure. Lowry's character development is wonderful and her vivid language effortlessly transports me into the world she has created while I work on my artwork. Also, the narrators for both books sound just right, and I'm very particular about narrators!

Oh My Gosh!
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would happily recommend this audio book to a friend. Even though it's the third book of the quartet, they can work separately, and you can understand the characters stories just by reading each book. It's a lovely story, well-paced, full of magic and simple, but engaging.
What other book might you compare Messenger to and why?
I don't have any book to compare it to because it's so different from other books I've read.
Which scene was your favorite?
The scene where he heals it all. It is so unexpected and full of grace.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Healing beyond reason.
Any additional comments?
The only thing that bothered me a little it that I thought the story could be longer.
