Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Giver, the 1994 Newbery Medal winner, has become one of the most influential novels of our time. The haunting story centers on twelve-year-old Jonas, who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Not until he is given his life assignment as the Receiver of Memory does he begin to understand the dark, complex secrets behind his fragile community. Lois Lowry has written three companion novels to The Giver, including Gathering Blue, Messenger, and Son.

Angie Mashinski, April 7, 2014 (view all comments by Angie Mashinski)
I have read a lot of books in my life, and I have a lot of books to read. But this book blew my mind! It was unlike any book I have ever read before. Lowry descibed every single moment so clearly that there is no possible way you could get confused, unlike some books I have read. Although I'm not really into love stories like Divergent and The Hunger Games, this book is so well written that it incorporates love all on its own. This fantastical, amazing, wonderous, inspiring, marvelous, crazy good book is now one of my all time favorites.
