Son (The Giver, #4)Son by Lois Lowry

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The fourth and final installment of the Giver series is, essentially, three novels. Most plot questions are answered as we learn more about the lives of Jonas, Gabriel, Kira, and the others. Claire is the central character of this novel and it is her story that ties everything together.

The ending of this series left me wanting more closure. There are characters you are left wondering about, hoping for. There are expressions of affection you long to see but never do. So much is left up to the reader's imagination that I felt a little let down. However, that being said, the level of writing talent in this book as with all of Lowry's books is astounding. She may not tie up her endings with a satin bow but she makes you think and feel.
