This one was a harder one than yesterday, I love so many books that I don’t think many other people have heard of, but at the same time, whether those books are underrated or just hidden gems is kind of hard to decipher. Todays post is:
A book that you think is woefully underrated
Not just underrated then, it has to be WOEFULLY so. I’ve pontificated on this most of the day and the one that I keep coming back to is The Giver by Lois Lowry. I remember getting it from this book club magazine thing from the chicken house (for some reason I think that’s what it was), this magazine would turn up through the door and you could order books from it at a slightly cheaper price, I chose this because the cover had a massive apple on the front and I was a bit intrigued, it doesn’t have a lot to do with apples, but it is in fact one of the first dystopian books I ever read and it is amazing. Basically, it does what the Matched trilogy tried to do but a million times better. I don’t know if The Giver is woefully underrated, it’s goodreads page would beg to differ, but I have yet to find someone else who’s read it, so I think among people I know it is underrated.
