Audio Book Summary

Lois Lowry’s The Giver is the quintessential dystopian novel, followed by its remarkable companions, Gathering Blue, Messenger, and Son.

Jonas's world is perfect. Everything is under control. There is no war or fear of pain. There are no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the community. When Jonas turns 12 he is singled out to receive special training from The Giver. The Giver alone holds the memories of the true pain and pleasure of life. Now, it is time for Jonas to receive the truth. There is no turning back.

    This was an easy to listen to book and a Good fantasy but a little hazy and not very exciting at times although made me think about state of affairs. The 12 Yr old boy sounded younger and too young to be a receiver

    Great book for my students but I disliked the audio. The main character Jonas is very mature for his age but his voice is made out to be very babyish and irksome. There is also music that accompanies the narration at times and I find it to be distracting.

    Great book, reminds one to think about things that we are starting to blandly accept as normal and ok but which have serious consequences on our futures. I liked the music highlighting elements of the story, it was used effectively. Cliff hanger ending was effective, though unsatisfying... yes I too will be reading the sequel.
