Really not a fan. Had to read this for school and found it was slow without very much happening and had a very unsatisfying ending. Would say it was a good concept though, just wasn’t executed very well.

It got me hooked and made me start questioning life.

Like reading stories about world's similar to our own, but still entirely different? Where the ideals and traditions feel foreign and wrong, but also plausible? Enter the worlds of Lois Lowry in her Giver quartet. In this book, the first of the series, Jonas starts to question why and how. That always leads to something!
