#200 - "The Giver" by Lois Lowry

Title: The Giver
Author: Lois Lowry
Series: The Giver, Book 1

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.
My rating: 5 of 5
My thoughts on the book:
I loved this one, too! It's beautiful & emotional read, the society & the dystopian world are well thought of & it leaves you thinking & I definitely wouldn't want to live in a world like that! I guess I would've preferred if there was a little more to the ending, but still good book! I'll definitely read the next one, although I think it's with different characters!
