Overall Rating

The Giver was actually a good book, I would rate this book three stars out of five because it was very confusing to me towards the end because it left me hanging. I would've rated the book more stars if the author decided to add more details to the ending. I loved the part when Jonas risks his life to save the world to make it a better place for him and everyone in it.
