In a perfect world, Jonas begins to see the flaws…

The Giver is the classic award-winning novel that inspired the dystopian genre and a major motion picture adaptation for 2014 starring Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, Katie Holmes and Taylor Swift.

It is the future. There is no war, no hunger, no pain. No one in the community wants for anything. Everything needed is provided. And at twelve years old, each member of the community has their profession carefully chosen for them by the Committee of Elders.

Twelve-year old Jonas has never thought there was anything wrong with his world. But from the moment he is selected as the Receiver of Memory, Jonas discovers that their community is not as perfect as it seems.

It is only with the help of the Giver, that Jonas can find what has been lost. And it is only through his personal courage that Jonas finds the strength to do what is right…

The Giver is the award-winning classic of bravery and adventure that has inspired countless dystopian writers as the forerunner of this genre.

  • Brilliant & compulsorary reading for all

    by on

    I love this book! I run my daughter's Primary Schools Scholastic Book Fair every year and this book I bought myself, labelled 12+ reading.Our Librarian did not purchase due to perhaps some children borrowing beyond their years & parents complaining. I took home and read in 1 night and loved.I talked about it to everyone, wishing my 9 year old was just a little older, say 10! We are discussing politics, equality, religion (hence acceptance) etc..now.This book reminds me of 1984 and many other world issues we have today or could become but it teaches us to believe in ourselves, our values, treasure memories & never forget,to think outside the box, that the world can be a better place- I guess hope. This book is on school reading lists around the world- why not here!
