It Began and Ended with Luke!
Reviewed in the United States on August 25, 2011
Luke is a third child illegal by the Population Police. In this final book in the series, the author writes about how Luke abandoned the Population Police and his life on the run until change is made for the people in his country.
Well, there are some slow moments in the book about Luke's life on the run among the others. This book ends abruptly without really clarifying the ending or what's to become of major characters throughout the seven book series. What changes have finally occurred in allowing third children to live legally?
The series is original in that concept. The whole series reminded me of George Orwell's novel, 1984, where the people were controlled by the government in all aspects of their lives. In this series, it's more believable. While it ended as it should, I think it could have been better in the final pages. I feel like it ended on a wimper than a bang. Maybe an epilogue about a year after the political uprising would have helped to see where the characters like Luke would be and hope for the better.
