Description du produit

Revue de presse

"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

Présentation de l'éditeur

They called her Water Claire. When she washed up on their shore, no one knew that she came from a society where emotions and colors didn’t exist. That she had become a Vessel at age thirteen. That she had carried a Product at age fourteen. That it had been stolen from her body. Claire had a son. But what became of him she never knew. What was his name? Was he even alive? She was supposed to forget him, but that was impossible. Now Claire will stop at nothing to find her child, even if it means making an unimaginable sacrifice.

Son thrusts readers once again into the chilling world of the Newbery Medal winning book, The Giver, as well as Gathering Blue and Messenger where a new hero emerges. In this thrilling series finale, the startling and long-awaited conclusion to Lois Lowry’s epic tale culminates in a final clash between good and evil.

I liked so much the three other books that my disappointment has been important. The reason ? The second part is... well... boring ! Long descriptions (the physical training, the climbing) with no real interest.
On the good side, I was happy to meet again characters from the other books. And the spirit, the values put forward are still remarkable. So, if you liked the series, read this one, but don't expect too much.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I always like Lois Lowry and this book doesn't fail 19 janvier 2017
Par Bay Ehrman - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I always like Lois Lowry and this book doesn't fail. If you've read The Giver, this definitely should follow. Of course, Gathering Blue and Messenger are important and incredible books as well, but The Giver is most necessary to read before Son. That being said, reading this as a standalone would be a great experience as well.

Because this book covers conception-kind issues, I would recommend it for teens and adults. It is light and intense at the same time, not too long or brief, and is altogether a well-written read. Highly recommended.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great tie-in with the others in Lowry's Giver series 30 avril 2014
Par Linda Gabriel - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I received "Son" in the mail the same day my daughter-in-law went into labor. As I was getting ready to head out to the hospital to await the birth of my grandson, I decided I should bring a book to read for the potentially long hours of waiting, and grabbed my new book. It wasn't until I opened it up in the LDR room and began reading that the appropriateness of my choice struck me. The first two chapters describe a young girl who, having been selected as a Birthmother for her community, undergoes a difficult delivery by C-section. After the procedure, the "product" of her delivery is taken away to be nurtured and then assigned to a worthy family unit. Claire never overcomes her sense of loss, and becomes determined to find her son and possibly establish a relationship with him.

"Son" is divided into three sections, which are set in three different communities. The first part moved quickly, and the reader begins to recognize who the characters are in relation to the prior books in Lowry's series. The middle section dragged a bit, with a little too much tedious detail about Claire's decision and preparation for setting out to find her son, but the third part wraps up the story nicely. In this book, Lowry ties the characters from The Giver, Gathering Blue, and Messenger together in a satisfying way. I do like the strong family ties that Lowry depicts in the last three books, an element which the community in "The Giver" was intentionally lacking. I'm looking forward to the upcoming movie of "The Giver," which is scheduled to hit theaters in August!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 An excellent conclusion to a wonderful quartet 7 novembre 2012
Par PWDecker - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Lois Lowry does not disappoint with this conclusion to The Giver Quartet. Although it does not live up to my high standards of The Giver, it is my second favorite of the four-book series. The style of it is very different that The Giver. The book is separated into three sections. Each of these sections could almost be its own contained story. If these had been released as smaller separate books or enovellas, they would have worked well. This book is much longer than The Giver.

The first part introduces us to Claire, a young girl in the community from The Giver, who has been chosen to conceive children for the community. She has complications during birth and is not the same after. I really liked being back in this community. The timeline coincides with events in The Giver, so it was fun to remember the original story and see events from a different perspective.

I won't go into details of the second and third parts, as to not spoil you. I will say, though, that they each take place in different communities and one of them may be a community from the second or third books. The third part of the book does a good job connecting all four books together. It makes me want to reread all four books in order to have each character fresh in my mind.

Some of the gifts that characters possess in the latter three books in this series feel very different than The Giver. After reading the first book, I didn't think these characters lived in a world of magic. There is also an unusual personification near the end that didn't feel right to me.

Since this book takes place over many years, many interesting characters are introduced. Lowry did an excellent job with making unique characters in all three communities.

This book is not The Giver, but if you have read the other books in the series you will in no way be disappointed. Don't expect a short, simple story going into this. The story is not simple, nor linear. Its a complex life story of a very interesting character. I give this conclusion to The Giver Quartet a 4/5.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointing 27 avril 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I LOVED the Giver, thought it was well written and so creative, absorbing, and with a very well defined / consistent to itself, dystopian society.
"Son" started out promisingly, but the last parts of book were very disappointing. While the book started out in the same dystopian setting as "the Giver", the last two parts of the story departed into extreme fantasy and extremely unrealistic elements. And left all sorts of questions about the original setting for the Giver, unanswered - so very unsatisfying. (SPOILER ALERT)
In Son -- there are settings that seem totally unreal (a village that grows up behind a virtually insurmountable barrier separating it from the outside world and making it almost impossible to ever escape without years of extreme physical endurance training). And wildly supernatural elements are introduced (a character who can INSTANTY grant any wishes -- e.g., changed physical appearance, a material possession, a specific spouse, finding something lost, etc. -- and can also supernaturally and instantly take away people's looks, honor, youth, or other physical or character qualities. Just way too wild to accept. I was also disappointed that the village Jonas had escaped to - instead of providing answers, ended up just being a village made up of various refugees / escapees from various dysfunctional societies.
It would have been so satisfying to understand how the society in "The Giver" had originally come about, what other communities were like, what the outside world was like (e.g., in "Son" - the people who came on boats to deliver supplies were apparently from the ordinary world. How were they involved in delivering supplies to the dystopian world of the Giver?) Also, when Jonas left his society in "The Giver", the hope had been that the society he left might experience change and freedom through the restoration of memories (that were to come back to them after Jonas left). It would have been so interesting to go back and see if the society had changed. But "Son" didn't give any indication that this would ever happen.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A so-so ending 21 juillet 2013
Par Sarah - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The Giver is one of my favorite books of all time. It's complex and beautiful. Each of its sequels, though, have disappointed me. Son is no exception. It begins in the same village as The Giver and is told through the perspective of Claire, a Birthmother. The first part of the book is promising, but really just retells Giver from another angle.
And that's as good as it gets. The other 2/3 of the book is an overlong, heavy-handed moral fable. The whys of this series are still never explained and, as in Messenger, Evil is "vanquished" in an almost laughable manner. I'm completely unsatisfied and wish I'd never read any of there mediocre sequels.
