Read ebook version. This was definitely not what I was expecting. I thought it would pick up where The Giver left off and continue that story. This is a completely different story, but it is a similar type of story. After I got over my initial disappointment, I really did enjoy this book for what it is. It's a shame that it was misleading. If I'd gone into it with a more open mind and expected a fresh story I think I would have thoroughly enjoyed it even more.
