Jan 14, Joe rated it it was ok Shelves: borrowed-library , young-adult , dafuq , science-fiction.
This cannot be how you chose to end the quartet. I am flabbergasted and bereft and I feel cheated. Despite being weaker efforts, Gathering Blue and Messenger felt like stepping stones toward an ending that would seamlessly combine disparate storylines. Instead we get this. I am well aware now that this review has begun as a rambling mess. Divided into three parts Before, Between, and Beyond , Son begins strongly.
Before Here is Claire, a child of fourteen, forced to live the life of a birthmother in a society that is a striking cross between Margaret Atwood's The Handmaids Tale and George Orwell's Fully realized in the Newbery Medal winning The Giver , it is a richly drawn community that provokes unease in the reader through subtlety.
Claire's character is developed beautifully, and readers will feel her ache and longing as she navigates the oppressive system in which she has been unwittingly thrust. Lowry is at her sharpest in the Before section. The narrative travels at a piercing clip, and the tumult of Claire's emotions is palpable in the same manner of Jonas' own emergence in The Giver. Further details about the community are provided, each simultaneously intriguing and sickening.
It is a section that is gripping and thrilling and that, unfortunately, ends. And the trouble begins. Spoilers from here on out. Lowry doesn't spend too much time explaining this. She doesn't have to. It is artfully rendered in The Giver. Something happens to the cargo boat and Claire is lost at sea, eventually washing up on the shores of a village that sits at the base of a towering cliff. This is a self-sustaining village, despite being cut off from the rest of the world.
There are cows and sheep, so everyone can eat. Also there are fisherman. These fisherman have boats, so anyone can leave this enclave at any time. Oh, wait. No, they can't. In order to leave, one must climb the cliff. Lois Lowry, award-winning author, can get away with these types of gaping plot holes, right? No, she can't. But she does. It is in Between that we spend pages of Claire getting acquainted with the new community and training to climb the cliff.
Oh, come on. No, really. Also, Claire is a bit of a bitch. In order to survive the climb, she murders a bunch of baby gulls so the mother gull won't attack her. Why is this in the narrative? Because it is. Maybe it shows her mettle? I don't know.
It was stupid and pointless. But not as stupid and pointless as what happens in And now she's living in the village from Messenger. Because of a foolish trade with the Trademaster, she's an old lady. Like, super old. And she's been in the village for seven years, watching Gabe like a creepy stalker but never saying anything to him because it might hurt him and because perhaps her story is too unbelievable to tell. But she eventually tells it anyway.

Each book has a different protagonist, but is set in the same futuristic era. The Giver is a American children's novel, generally for young adults or older, which is set in a society that is at first presented as a utopian society but gradually appears more and more dystopian. The novel follows a boy, Jonas, in his twelfth and thirteenth years. The society has eliminated pain and strife by converting itself to "Sameness," a plan that has also eradicated emotional depth from their lives.

Останься со мной, Сьюзан. Ты нужна. Яростная волна гнева захлестнула. Она снова услышала голос Дэвида: Я люблю. Беги. Внезапный прилив энергии позволил ей освободиться из объятий коммандера. Шум ТРАНСТЕКСТА стал оглушающим.
Ш-ш-ш, - утешал он. - Это. Теперь все в порядке. Сьюзан не могла унять дрожь. - Ком… мандер, - задыхаясь, пробормотала она, сбитая с толку.

Такси все еще продолжало крутиться, и в ожидании столкновения он сжался в комок. Раздался оглушающий треск гофрированного металла. Но Беккер не ощутил боли. Неожиданно он оказался на открытом воздухе, по-прежнему сидя на веспе, несущейся по травяному газону. Задняя стенка ангара бесследно исчезла прямо перед. Такси все еще двигалось рядом, тоже въехав на газон. Огромный лист гофрированного металла слетел с капота автомобиля и пролетел прямо у него над головой.
Беккер нервно посматривал на медсестру.
Человек, к которому он направил Росио. Странно, подумал он, что сегодня вечером уже второй человек интересуется этим немцем. - Мистер Густафсон? - не удержался от смешка Ролдан. - Ну .
Вой сирены вернул ее к действительности. Она смотрела на обмякшее тело коммандера и знала, о чем он думает. Рухнул не только его план пристроить черный ход к Цифровой крепости. В результате его легкомыслия АНБ оказалось на пороге крупнейшего в истории краха, краха в сфере национальной безопасности Соединенных Штатов.
Прислонившись к перилам, он вглядывался в грохочущее нутро шахты ТРАНСТЕКСТА. - Коммандер! - позвала Сьюзан. Ответа не последовало. Сьюзан спустилась по лестнице на несколько ступенек. Горячий воздух снизу задувал под юбку.
Других слов для него у нее не. Стратмор оторвался от перил и переложил пистолет в правую руку. Не произнеся ни слова, он шагнул в темноту, Сьюзан изо всех сил держалась за его плечо. Если она потеряет с ним контакт, ей придется его позвать, и тогда Хейл может их услышать.
Беккер убрал блокнот и ручку. Игра в шарады закончилась. Дело принимает совсем дурной оборот. - Итак, кольцо взял немец. - Верно.
Чем могу помочь? - спросила она на гортанном английском. Беккер не мигая смотрел на эту восхитительную женщину. - Мне нужно кольцо, - холодно сказал. - Кто вы такой? - потребовала. Беккер перешел на испанский с ярко выраженным андалузским акцентом: - Guardia Civil.
