Description
(Newberry Medal Winner) In this first book of the Giver Quartet——inspiration for the 2014 motion picture featuring Meryl Streep and Jeff Bridges—Jonas is happy in the perfectly ordered Community, a place without war or fear but also without passion. Matched couples have exactly two children who, at the age of 12, are given drugs to calm their adolescent desires and are sent into careers by the Council of Elders. Citizens who are too old or incapable of serving the Community are "released." But Jonas is selected to be a Receiver of Memories, a vessel for history that goes back before the Community, and the memories infused into him by the Giver fill him with a terrible knowledge of the fallacy that underpins his entire world. First published in 1993, The Giver introduced young adult readers to a bizarre, colorless future where nothing was quite what it seemed. Lois Lowry explored that world even further in Gathering Blue, Messenger, and Son, creating the saga now known as the Giver Quartet. Also the author of Number the Stars, Lowry won her second Newbery Medal for this vivid dystopian tale.
