it was amazing

I hope this isn't really the last book in the series, although there were only supposed to be three so I suppose it's selfish to be ungrateful about a bonus book.

I loved The Giver and its two sequels, which I read back to back last year. Sometimes when you read most of the books in a series in a row and then read the next over a year later, the new book isn't as good because you've been knocked out of the world. That wasn't at all true in this case. This book was just as wonderful as its predecessors.

The Giver is obviously my favorite, but I think this is right behind it. I adored everything about it, but Claire is one of my favorite heroines in a long time (in any book, not just this particular series). And the way this is connected to The Giver? Wonderful. :)

Both this book and the entire series are highly recommended.
