Son by Lois Lowry
Son Audiobook is the final entry in The Giver Quartet by Lois Lowry, follows Claire, the mother of Gabriel, the baby seen in The Giver.
This audiobook concludes the quartet that began with Lois Lowry’s Newbery award-winning book The Giver and continued through Gathering Blue and Messenger.
When the young girl washed up on their shore, no one knew she had been a Vessel. That she had carried a Product. That it had been carved from her belly. Stolen.
Claire had had a son. She was supposed to forget him, but that was impossible. When he was taken from their community, she knew she had to follow. And so her journey began.
But here in this wind-battered village, Claire is welcomed as one of their own. In the security of her new home, she is free and loved. She grows stronger. As tempted as she is by the warmth of more human kindness than she has ever known, she cannot stay. Her son is out there; a young boy by now. Claire will stop at nothing to find her child…even if it means trading her own life.
Son Audiobook Review
This book did everything I wanted it to do. It wrapped up three other books into one story. It’s easy to imagine a teller of tales recounting the story to a large audience as they cozy up in front of a roaring fire. The book is quite a bit longer than “The Giver” and is divided into three sections each spanning the length of one leg of Claire’s journey. This is both appropriate and intelligent for it becomes a book within a book (which has its own beginning, middle, and end).
The in-depth writing by Lowry was refreshing. I loathe getting to the end of a series and feeling like something is missing or has been cut short. I never got that feeling with this quartet! Each book left me eager to pick up the next and then I felt a sense of closure and rightness at the completion of Son. Lowry is an amazing author! She gives the reader the ability to really see the stories play out vividly in one’s mind. I only wish I had read the whole quartet sooner!
