The Giver was an amazing book! Lois Lowry is a great writer. The book talks about Jonas, an 11, soon to be 12 year old that lives in an idyllic community. In the community you are given your job spouse and children. You have no choice, no freedom. But, Jonas is very different. He is given a special assignment......a painful assignment that allows him to see the flaws in the delicate system of the community.
Jeanne DuPrau did a great job when writing "THE CITY OF EMBER." She had an interesting plot and relatable characters but, the fact that she doesn't talk about the system of Ember bothers me. Doesn't anybody wonder where the Builders came from? Besides that I enjoyed it. It was an unique and well written book. In my opinion, the best one in the series.
