Review: Son by Lois Lowry

sonOver the years, I have read all the books in the series that start with The Giver.  I like to think of The Giver as the original dystopian novel (though I’m sure it’s not)– the story of Jonas and “The Community.”  This book is followed by Kira’s story in Gathering Blue and then Matty’s story in The Messenger.

Now, Son ties them all together.

And that was really the brilliance of Son.  I didn’t find it especially well-written or thrilling.  It was a bit disjointed and the ending was too fast and too easy.

But for those of us who originally loved Jonas and Gabe, the little boy he escaped with, this book feels like tying up all loose ends, and there is a satisfaction to that.
