The basic premise is that there's a new utopian village where people are treated nicely and everybody has a role in society and a "true name." Naturally, something starts to go wrong--people start trading their souls for material goods, the forbidden forest becomes evil, and the once-welcoming villagers want to build a wall and not let anymore foreigners in. It's up to Matty to save the day.
I enjoyed this book. I know some people wanted more of a link with the Giver and wanted more questions answered, but this wasn't Jonas' story. It was Matty's story. It does answer the big question from the Giver (did Jonas survive?).
