Told in three separate story lines, Lois Lowry’s Son combines elements from the first three novels in her Giver Quartet—The Giver (1994 Newbery Medal winner), Gathering Blue, and Messenger—into a breathtaking, thought-provoking narrative that wrestles with ideas of human freedom. Thrust again into the dark, claustrophobic world of The Giver, readers will meet an intriguing new heroine, fourteen-year-old Claire. Jonas from The Giver is here too, and Kira, the heroine of Gathering Blue. In a final clash between good and evil, a new hero emerges. The whole Quartet has been redesigned in honor of this long-awaited grand finale!

I only gave it 4 stars because Book II of this book spends too much time describing how hard she climbs the mountain. But few plots were introduced in this process and made this part kind of dull. But the overall story of mother Claire finding his son Gabe is very touching and heart-warming.
Ce quatrième livre clotûre la quadrilogie "Le Passeur" et est à mes yeux mon préféré. Il arrive à être touchant en parlant de thèmes extrêmement diversifiés et en abordant des dystopies extrêmement différentes bien que réunies au sein du même monde. Le combat de Claire est magnifique, puissant, et c...
