Item Description...
Given his lifetime assignment at the Ceremony of Twelve, Jonas becomes the receiver of memories shared by only one other in his community and discovers the terrible truth about the society in which he lives.

Publishers Description
Lois Lowry's "The Giver" is the quintessential dystopian novel, followed by its remarkable companions, "Gathering Blue," "Messenge"r, 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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Hey!  Sep 10, 2007
Hey! look over here ok now that I've got your attention, if you're looking for a strange but good book then this is the perfect book for you. The Giver by Lois Lowry explains how the Giver gives Jonas thoughts and teaches him different feelings from everyone else. To start, Jonas lives in a very strange town. The community that he lives in is unusually different in its ways and rules. Also, in The Giver, he gives Jonas real thoughts and feelings. The feelings are happy, sad, and miserable. Finally, Jonas leaves the community. Unfortunately, if I tell you why it would ruin the whole story! So you better read this book to find out why Jonas ran away!
Good middle school book  Aug 25, 2007
School report for my son (8th grader) He liked it, I read it too and enjoyed it.
Modern-day classic  Aug 15, 2007
Anyone who wouldn't give this book 5 stars, must have missed the point. It's on my list of 10 all-time best books I've read. I read the book 10 years ago & still think about the main characters. This author is such a clever writer. A real pleasure to read her books. I've read them as an adult, even though they are written for teens. Great book club discussion book!
A great classic  Aug 6, 2007
This was the book that turned me on to reading as a child. I bought this copy to remind me of simpler days. And you know what? I still loved it. It's great for people of all ages. The creativity and originality of this story will captivate the young as well as the old, still a page turner!
A must read.   Jul 27, 2007
If you haven't read it yet, you must. You just must. It's such an interesting idea for a book, one that is bound to interest all ages. I think I've read it 5 times. Oh, the sequels.. they aren't as great. But enjoy this one!
