Her ending won some, lost some

Lois Lowry speaks about audience reaction to her open-ended novel, The Giver

Lois Lowry's "The Giver" is one of the most popular and important young-adult books of the last decade. It won the Newbery Medal in 1994 and has been compared with George Orwell's "1984." It's attracted an adult audience and been chosen several times for "one community-one book" events... It also has an ambiguous conclusion. Many readers weren't happy that everything wasn't clearly resolved, and they let Lowry know it.
