Jonas's world is perfect. Everything is under control. There is no war or fear or pain. There are no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the Community.
When Jonas turns twelve, he is singled out to receive special training from The Giver. The Giver alone hold the memories to the true pain and pleasure of life. Now it's time for Jonas to receive the truth. There is no turning back.
Jonas is a sweet, cute, smart, funny character that I loved. If you like books where YOU decide the ending, then you may love this book. If you also like to figure out the authors underlying meaning, then you may love this book. I, on the other hand, thought The Giver was entertaining, weird, a WAY easy & short read, but I extremely disliked the ending :) So read at your own risk. Although, I think a lot of people have already read The Giver in school or whatever. I decided to read it since my friend Kim named her baby Asher. After Jonas' sweet, silly best friend.
