I've been wearing out my Kindle lately. On vacation last August, a friend was reading The Giver by Lois Lowry and strongly recommended it.
I started reading the first book of the quartet last week. They're very quick reads; I read all of the third one today (The Messenger) and will probably wrap up the fourth (The Son) later on tonight or tomorrow.
They're fascinating. The first two are about totally different communities, but I kept reading under the assumption they'd all be tied together at some point to make the books an actual series. Sure enough, the third one re-introduced the main character from the first book, and the fourth book is starting with a new character from the community of the first book.
As my friend did so many months ago, I would totally recommend all four (in order) of the books in this quartet.
