Son – The End of a Beautiful Quartet

A couple of nights ago, I was a terribly bad girl and stayed up until nearly 1am.

Why?

Because I was nearing the end of the final book in The Giver series.  Son, by Lois Lowry, ends what began as a haunting story that led readers craving for closure to a somewhat odd, yet deeply touching series.

I’d read The Giver last summer and had been thrilled when I discovered that there were three more books.

I am a gal who likes for her stories to end neatly, and Lowry definitely did that in the final book.

Oh word, but Son touched me in so many ways.

As a mother, I hurt for Claire.

As a child who grew up often feeling devoid of parental love, I hurt for Gabe.

This installment brought together characters from the previous three books, and it was fun to watch the pieces come together.

My mind was taken back to various parts of the previous books, and I marveled at Lowry’s creativity.

This series is perfect for students…especially those who are struggling readers and need to learn how to make connections.

If you are looking for something good to read, hightail it over to your favorite bookstore and BUY THIS SERIES!

You won’t regret it, although you better plan on a few late nights to get them read!
