Lois Lowry’s The Giver is the quintessential dystopian novel, followed by its remarkable companions, Gathering Blue, Messenger, and Son.

Jonas's world is perfect. Everything is under control. There is no war or fear of pain. There are no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the community. When Jonas turns 12 he is singled out to receive special training from The Giver. The Giver alone holds the memories of the true pain and pleasure of life. Now, it is time for Jonas to receive the truth. There is no turning back.

    Great book, reminds one to think about things that we are starting to blandly accept as normal and ok but which have serious consequences on our futures. I liked the music highlighting elements of the story, it was used effectively. Cliff hanger ending was effective, though unsatisfying... yes I too will be reading the sequel.

    Wonderful book and a great reading. Could have done without the music, but this was a great experience!

  • Tannia C.

    I really liked the book they way they tell the story. But the end, not too sure about the end. I wished it was a bit different.

  • Joshua Palmer

    Didn't like the ending. The rest was good though. Really cool idea.
