Jessica's Review: Son by Lois Lowry

 

 

The Giver by Lois Lowry was first published as a stand-alone novel. It won the Newbery Medal in 1994 despite controversy over the appropriateness for young children. Over the years Lowry has expanded the book into The Giver Quartet. Son is the final book of the series.

 

Son follows the story of Claire, who has been assigned to be a Vessel in the same sterile Community found in The Giver. Claire’s quest to find something she has lost takes her across land and sea, and the journey transforms her beyond her imagining. It is her part in the story that brings understanding into a young man's life.

 

Son is a pleasant return to the characters and communities of the previous three novels. It is the strongest of The Giver’s sequels, although the book ties the series together a little too neatly.  Still, the choice between doing what is right and what is easy makes Son both philosophically challenging and worth the read.

I love this novel. This is

I love this novel. This is one of the best mystery novels that I have in my collections. I get quality time to read it with my kids at home.

I am madly in love with this

I am madly in love with this novel that it let me stop my simcity 2013 crack play just to read this novel again and again. It makes my tears fall, made me smile and reflects to my life. This is a must read novel and hoping to have volumes for this.
