In a world with no poverty, no crime, no sickness and no unemployment, and where every family is happy, 12-year-old Jonas is chosen to be the community's Receiver of Memories. Under the tutelage of the Elders and an old man known as the Giver, he discovers the disturbing truth about his utopian world and struggles against the weight of its hypocrisy. With echoes of Brave New World, in this 1994 Newbery Medal winner, Lowry examines the idea that people might freely choose to give up their humanity in order to create a more stable society. Gradually Jonas learns just how costly this ordered and pain-free society can be, and boldly decides he cannot pay the price. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen What. . .Utopia? 23. Mai 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
This novel, The Giver, written by Lois Lowry is an exciting, breath-taking book. It is well written, and it keeps you interested with the exciting things that are happening. It is about a 12-year-old boy named Jonas who discovers the true meaning of life. You see, he lives in a community where there is no color or pain. Nobody is left hungry, and everybody is equal. You might think it is a utopia, but the people have to give up a lot. They have no love, no marriage, no originality, and no one can be the slightest bit different. Jonas is selected to be the next Receiver of Memory, who receives the memories of the past before the community went to Sameness, and he alone can experience the pleasure and pain of life. His father is a nurturer who takes care of babies, or so Jonas thinks. Actually, Jonas sees his father kill a baby on video screen! His mother works as a person who enforces laws. Jonas realizes that he lives in no utopia and that he lives in a totally separated society. His society is separated from practically the whole outside world. He realizes that his community is separated from the outside world from the memories he has been receiving from The Giver. He decides he cannot live without colors, pain, or basically a regular world with real love, so he leaves the community and goes "Elsewhere" to live in the pleasure of colors and weather. That is an extremely daring move. You see, in his community, nobody is allowed to leave their homes after dark. Also, he steals food. That is dangerous because the night crew is right there watching him take it! If I were Jonas, I would do the exact same thing he did. I could not imagine living in a society like that one. The Giver is a truly excellent book because the plot is interesting, and the book kept feeding me with more and more information. I recommend it to children ten and over because younger ones might not get or understand the true meaning of the book. I give it 5 STARS!

4.0 von 5 Sternen It's a very Bizarre book. 8. Oktober 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
"THE GIVER" Author: Lois Lowry Report by: Shelton Amerman
In my own personal opinion, "THE GIVER", by Lois Lowry, is an extremely bizarre book. It's a book about a future world. This world is supposedly perfect; no crime, no poverty, no starvation, no war, no prejudice, no overpopulation, no divorce, no pain, good educational system. Children grow up learning different jobs, rules of the community, good manners, and proper speech. When they reach the age of twelve( they celebrate birthdays all at the same time), they are assigned a job that fits with their abilities, if they want a spouse, they are assigned one, if they want children, they are assigned one male and one female, no more. When they are old, they go to a special facility. It's perfect; on the surface. There is also no freedom, no privacy, no emotion, no color, no music, no sunlight, no weather, no understanding of the past, no choice. When someone gets to old, they are "released", if twins or an extra child is born, they are "released"(releasing is what they call killing). The book focuses primarily on the experiences of a boy called Jonas. When he turns twelve, he is selected for the most honored position in the community, "Receiver of Memories" from the "Giver of Memories". The position is one in which "The Giver" gives memories of the past, both good and bad, to Jonas. Jonas learns that the community is not the perfect place he once thought it was. Then something happens that causes Jonas to do something drastic. At the end he......well, you'll have to read the book to find out. The book is very well written, very descriptive and imaginative, But the ending leaves you hanging. All in All, It's a good book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The Giver 4. Juli 2005
Format:Taschenbuch
The Giver - Review
The book takes place in a very strange community, where no one can see colors and everything is monochromatic. In this community everything is almost perfect: there is no hunger, no poverty and no war. The main characters are Jonas, his younger sister Lillie, their parents, and their infant brother, Gabriel. Jonas is closing in on his Ceremony of Twelve, then, when Elevens become Twelve's, these events are some kind of birthday-parties. In this event every Twelve is assigned a job decided by their abilities and the things, which they prefer to do in their volunteer-hours, until the rest of his live, or until reaching the House of the Old. After that event the children have the same rights like an adult and then it doesn't matter to them how old they are. This society is divided is different parts: the community then the Elders and above the Giver, the person, who has the most important job in the community he holds all the memories of what ordinary life was like. He has also memories of colors, of hills, of snow, and of an ordinary family life. The Elders have decided to transmit him all these memories including everything from cruel war to very nice things like Christmas. All that stuff the community doesn't know and especially that is the Givers job to keep these memories away from the people of the community so that the community works comparable to a machine. By the Ceremony of Twelve Jonas is assigned to exactly that unusual but much respected job: He should be the new Giver. Soon Jonas learns why his community is based on rules and why some things are banned, and what does it mean to get released.
