I thought the book was beautiful. A lot of reviews here claim that it had a lot of unanswered questions but in all honesty, I don't have any idea what they mean. She manages to keep from focusing on Jonas and Kira too much, which I think is a good thing. The book is equally wonderful for those who have read the other two books as well as those who read this one first.
I agree a bit that the ending did feel rushed, but looking back on it there weren't many ways for that to be different, really. Maybe a few tiny things could have been extended, but it would've been pointless. And while Lois Lowry doesn't directly come out and answer the questions posed by her books, that is generally the main point. Most of the answers are suggested in the general tone of the book, and answers are only hinted at. Thats what makes her books so great, I think.
Overall, the book was *beautifully* written and a very good reflection on today's society, and everyone should read it.
