All I have to say to the critics is get over the fact that this book's world is very similar to the one in The Giver. The story is not entirely original, yes, but it's the way that it is told that is so so special and delicate. The writing was refreshingly elegant and simple but with layers of meaning that I read all too quickly. Oh, how many times did I have to put this book down at a chapter's end to remember to breathe? So very pleasantly surprised by this book. I kind of want to hug it.
