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 assignments as the Receiver of Memory does he begin to understand they dark, complex secrets behind his fragile community.
I was super excited to try Amazon Unlimited Books that I downloaded a few today! The Giver (Book one) is the first book I enjoyed reading that is available through the service! I plan to read Gathering Blue, the second book in the series soon. This novel was written in the 90s when dystopian novels weren’t so popular. I literally downloaded it earlier today and just finished it. It’s a thought provoking read!
