Jonas's world is perfect. Everything is under manage. There's no war or fear of discomfort. There are no choices. When Jonas turns 12 he is singled out to get particular education from The Giver. Now, it is time for Jonas to obtain the truth. The Giver alone holds the memories from the true discomfort and pleasure of life. There's no turning back. Every individual is assigned a role in the community.
In a world with no poverty, no crime, no sickness and no unemployment, and where every family members is happy, 12-year-old Jonas is selected to be the community's Receiver of Memories. Under the tutelage of the Elders and an old man referred to as the Giver, he discovers the disturbing truth about his utopian world and struggles against the weight of its hypocrisy. Gradually Jonas learns just how costly this ordered and pain-free society can be, and boldly decides he can not pay the price tag tag. With echoes of Brave New World, in this 1994 Newbery Medal winner, Lowry examines the concept that people might freely select to provide up their humanity so that you can produce a far more stable society.
