Publisher Comments:

Magnifica historia que nos presenta a un joven, Jonas, que vive en una Comunidad totalmente controlada y donde todos sus miembros tienen un papel asignado por el Comite de Ancianos, maximo organismo de mando. Sus habitantes no sufren, ni carecen de nada, pero, a cambio, estan privados de libertad. Jonas, un joven de doce anos, recibe en la Ceremonia del Doce, la mision mas relevante dentro de la Comunidad: Jonas sera el encargado de sustituir a un anciano cuya funcion es la de mantener los recuerdos de la Comunidad. El anciano, "El Dador," empieza a transmitir a Jonas los recuerdos que el posee. Al principio Jonas adquiere sensaciones sencillas como el color, el sol, la nieve, las montanas... Para despues entrar en contacto con el amor, la guerra, la muerte... Estas nuevas experiencias, le haran plantearse muchas actitudes consideradas normales dentro de la Comunidad y a dudar de si para evitar el sufrimiento y la tristeza renunciando al amor y la libertad. En esta clase de relatos de ficcion dirigido a jovenes, se proponen problemas muy humanos: la libertad, la esclavitud, la felicidad, el respeto a la vida. El protagonista, con decision y valentia, sabe salir del cerco que le tiende la Comunidad. Detras de la montana le espera una vida diferente.

Synopsis:

Given his lifetime assignment at the Ceremony of Twelve, Jonas becomes the receiver of memories shared by only one other in his community and discovers the terrible truth about the society in which he lives.
