Jonas's world is perfect. There is absolutely no turning back. Everything is below manage. The Giver alone holds the memories utilizing the true discomfort and pleasure of life. Every person is assigned a role inside the community. There are no choices. Now, it is time for Jonas to obtain the truth. There's no war or worry of pain. When Jonas turns 12 he is singled out to get specific training from The Giver.
In a world with no poverty, no crime, no sickness and no unemployment, and where each family is happy, 12-year-old Jonas is chosen to grow to be the community's Receiver of Memories. Gradually Jonas learns just how costly this ordered and pain-free society can be, and boldly decides he can't pay the price tag. With echoes of Brave New World, in this 1994 Newbery Medal winner, Lowry examines the notion that folks might freely pick to give up their humanity in order that you can generate a much more stable society. Under the tutelage from the Elders and an old man generally referred to as the Giver, he discovers the disturbing truth about his utopian world and struggles against the weight of its hypocrisy.
