Product description

About the Author

Lois Lowry is known for her versatility and invention as a writer. She has received countless honors, among them the Newbery Medal for two of her novels, Number the Stars and The Giver, the first novel in the Giver Quartet. Ms. Lowry now divides her time between Cambridge and an 1840s farmhouse in Maine. --This text refers to the audioCD edition.


Written with powerful, moving simplicity, Claire's story stands on its own, but as the final volume in this iconic quartet, it holistically reunites characters, reprises provocative socio-political themes, and offers a transcending message of tolerance and hope. Bravo!
--Kirkus, starred review

Lowry is one of those rare writers who can craft stories as meaningful as they are enticing.
--Booklist, starred review

Son is a tender conclusion to this memorable story, and definitely the best of the books in this sequence since The Giver itself.
--School Library Journal, starred review

The strength of this novel is its compassionate portrait of a mother's commitment to her lost child.
--Horn Book

In the completely absorbing opening, Lowry transports readers back to the horrifying world from which Jonas came.
--Publishers Weekly

"A consummate stylist, Lowry handles it all magnificently: the leaps in time, the shifts in perspective, the moments of extreme emotion -- fear, joy, sadness -- all conveyed in unadorned prose that seizes the heart. Give this book to your child, your grandmother, your senator, your neighbor: It's a bipartisan tale for our times."
--The Washington Post

"Lois Lowry's Son [is] a gripping end to the Giver series"
--The Los Angeles Times

"It's the kind of book that will stay with you for days as you wonder about what it says about human nature, society, and the future of society."

A quiet, sorrowful, deeply moving exploration of the powers of empathy and the obligations of love.
--The New York Times Book Review --This text refers to the paperback edition.
