Newberry Award Winner
Jonas lives a simple life with no choices, no real feelings, and no knowledge of anywhere else. He knows no color and there are no animals. Until he is chosen to be the new reciever. He goes to the Giver, an old man who has a vast knowledge of almost everything. His job is to keep the information for if the community needs it. Now Jonas must take the job. He and the giver know that they need to give the knoledge to the people, so Jonus must run away...
This book is a very powerful book. It was confusing, but one of the best I have ever read. It deserves the award it got.
Would you like having no choices or big feelings in life?
Could you stand being the reciever?
Would you run away from the village to let the memories free and never come back?
