Jonas lives in a perfect world where war, disease, and sorrow have all been eradicated. All is in order; everything is in hand. The people have no worries or fears. The Community strives for uniformity, in which everyone and everything are the same and equal. To help the community function as a solid unit, each member is assigned a position in society. When Jonas turns 12, the community picks him to be the new “Receiver of Memories.” Only the “Giver” knows the truth and memories of the past, and now he must pass these memories on to Jonas.
The Giver is a magnificent book. Lois Lowry expertly created an absorbing and deeply thoughtful story. She slightly creates an anxious feeling that something is wrong with this “perfect world.” The Community’s advisers plan to establish security within utopian society, but they really establish a muggy dystopia. To save people from the menaces of making wrong decisions in life, the advisers plan and dictate the lives of the people. In effect, the citizens have no freedom of choice; they do not choose their job or even their spouse on their own. Moreover, the advisers deter the people’s ability to feel because they want to spare them from the sufferings and pain of life. For instance, individuals must take a pill every day, which quashes passionate feelings. The citizens do not know or experience true emotions like love. One of the goals of the Community is to achieve uniformity so that no one feels ashamed or gets excluded for being different. However, this limits uniqueness and freedom of expression because everyone imitates to a certain desired image. Finally, to relieve the population of the terrors and devastation of the world and the past, the advisors segregate the Community from the rest of the world (also known as elsewhere) and give the liability of holding the memories of the past to a single member of society: the “Receiver.” And so, the Community lives only in the present, and the people have a narrow perception of life because they only know their community and way of life. They are simple; they do not gain awareness or wisdom from the memories. While receiving the memories, Jonas mug up a different and better way to live and realizes what he and the Community have been missing. He decides that something must be done to change the present conditions and educate his community.
It is a great book. A powerful story, The Giver keeps readers engaged, touches them, and stays with them for a long time. I love this book, and I recommend everyone to read it.
