Son: Book Review
Review: Lois Lowry, how do you do it? How do you draw me into a book on the first page and make me stay up until 1am reading it because I can't put it down? How do you make a story so interesting and tie three other books that did not at first seem related to each other in this one book? And finally, why is it that I am always disappointed with the endings of your books?
Loved the book the whole time I was reading it up until the end. Like the other books in the Giver series, the story ended when it felt like it was a new beginning. Yes, she completes what feels like a chapter in the book and the character comes to a conclusion, but the conclusion is also a beginning of a new story for the character and I know that I will never hear that story because that is how Lois Lowry rolls.
So, I recommend this book to all readers, younger and older. It was an intriguing read and one that I could definitely see a kid writing a book report on. But, I recommend that you read the other books in the Giver series first as all the characters in those books make a reappearance. But, I hadn't read those books in years and barely remembered them, but still managed to enjoy this book.
