This book is a lovely end to a great series. it's definitely worth the time. Sections 1 and 2 are excellent. The third section was less interesting regarding Claire but it's great to know what happens to Gabe and Jonas.

Classic book, well read

This book is a classic. It is truly a treat, worthwhile for young and old alike. Jonas is endearing, the Giver is such a lovely character, and the story itself is intriguing and stimulating. Definitely worth a revisit for anyone who read it in school. The narrator really brings it to life. Would recommend.

Excellent. Lovely, heartbreaking, and worth every moment. What a beautiful story of love, loss, bravery, and what it means to be human.

A necessary step but somewhat weak

Aside from the narrator's propensity for mispronunciation, this is a worthwhile listen. It's a bit of a deviation from the first book of the series, which I think is a significantly stronger offering from O'Brien. The story gets mired in some useless romantic turmoil, but some of it does serve to advance the plot so don't rule it out too quickly. Overall, a necessary step towards the conclusion of the series, but not the strongest plotwise.

Aside from mispronunciations, worthwhile.

The book is great. i rrad it many years ago and enjoyed thr audiobook. Love to see reproductive rights being discussed. The narrator mispronounces many words, which is a bit grating. otherwise a worthwhile listen
