    1984 af George Orwell (cflorente)

    The Handmaid's Tale af Margaret Atwood (cflorente)

    Fagre nye verden af Aldous Huxley (chrisharpe, afyfe)
    chrisharpe: I see I am in a minority but, although the idea behind the book is a good one, The Giver struck me as quite clumsy. A much more effective exploration of similar themes is Huxley's "Brave New World".
  4. 192
    Dødsspillet af Suzanne Collins (writecathy)
  5. 150
    The City of Ember af Jeanne DuPrau (FFortuna)
    FFortuna: The Giver is much darker, but are similar in premise.
  6. 176
    Tuck Everlasting af Natalie Babbitt (_Zoe_)
    _Zoe_: Another children's book that manages both to entertain and to make you think. These are two of my favourites.
  7. 110
    Uglies af Scott Westerfeld (KamTonnes)
    KamTonnes: Uglies and The Giver both portray societies that limit conflict by having very specific rules, roles, and expectations for everyone. Also, in both stories, the main characters slowly start to question the values of their respective communities.
  8. 100
    Løbeild af Suzanne Collins (jessicastatzer)
  9. 51
    Matched : Cassias valg af Ally Condie (Trojanprincess, frankiejones)
    Trojanprincess: The two worlds seem similar in the way that every aspect of their livee are controlled.
  10. 40
    The House of the Scorpion af Nancy Farmer (jbarry)
    jbarry: futuristic take on biomedical ethics and mindbendingly complicated relationships
  11. 40
    Vi af Yevgeny Zamyatin (chrisharpe)
    chrisharpe: Similar themes, We is a lot better written.

    The Owl Keeper af Christine Brodien-Jones (wordcauldron)
    wordcauldron: Similarly brain-washy story about a controlled society and how the government tries to suppress the talented people who could break it all down and bring freedom and individualism.

  16. 10
    Among the Hidden af Margaret Peterson Haddix (BookshelfMonstrosity)
    BookshelfMonstrosity: In these riveting, suspenseful and thought-provoking dystopian novels, 12-year-old boys learn from inspirational figures about the true nature of their repressive societies: Jonas, from the elderly Giver; Luke, from another hidden -- albeit, more privileged and knowledgeable -- "third child."… (mere)

This book is sacred to me. Really. There is so much beauty and horror in this story, despite it being a children's book. This is a book I have probably read dozens of times and listened to the audiobook dozens of times as well. I know passages by heart, and I feel like its message has been present in my life ever since I read it. I remember reading it for the first time with my mom, and after we read it together we insisted that my dad had to read it too so we could discuss it. It has since become one of my absolute favorite books. ( )

Not my favorite genre, but a good story. ( )

This book isn't for children. It's for simpletons.
Mix in the pot Logan's Run, 1984, and Fahrenheit 451. Deprive the characters from any depth, and the background world from any explanation. Add some unscientific lines (like different light properties) without a how or a why; spice with some magical abilities and the figure of a "chosen one" and you get this.
It is ironic that a book which claims to invite children to question adults and challenge the system asumes that the reader should not ask about all the inconsistencies and plot holes.

I couldn't stop wondering where does this book's fame come from. It is unoriginal, poorly written and dull. My guess it is that it is not the book children like or want to read. It is the book that parents scared with big-government, socialism and what-not, want their children to read.

If you are a teacher and you are pushing reading this, you are a bad teacher and insulting the student's intelligence. In the case that you feel like moralizing with dystopias, there are plenty of literary works with actual depth which will serve the goals of critical thinking, education and entertainment. ( )

This is one of my all-time favorite books. I'm fascinated by books about dystopian societies, and I enjoyed the concept of memory being necessary for a society, but not necessarily desirable. ( )

I was assigned this book for school reading. It was supposed to be a couple of chapters a day. I read through it in one sitting. I had to! Some books, it feels like I will ruin my life if I put them down. It was so with The Giver.

I'm not going to go into the utopian/dystopian setting or the political messages. What struck me about the book was memories. The people of Jonas's community had no memories other than here and now, the Sameness. It was safe, and they were all content because they did not know any other way. It sort of blew me away when I realized that no one in the book had any concept of hills or color, because those were outside the realm of their experience. Things I take for granted. And none of them had experienced love, which I have also lived with my entire life.

The Giver and the Receiver were the only people who knew suffering, hunger, poverty, agony, war, or terror. They were alone in their pain. But they were also the only ones who knew true joy, love, and courage. They needed the good memories of many generations, "back and back and back", to face the pain that brought wisdom. Someone needed to bear all those memories. They alone had the strength.

Basically, anyone who has traumatic memories, this book will be an engrossing and hard read. It brought to mind a lot of stuff for me. Some pages it was mostly memories of the joy of love. Other pages it was the pain of loneliness. But after reading this book, it's like I'm armed with the confidence, that even when the bad memories threaten to overtake me, when it hurts just to breath, I have the strength and wisdom to use all my memories to keep others safe.

It was almost December, and Jonas was beginning to be frightened.
Oplysninger fra den engelske Almen Viden Redigér teksten, så den bliver dansk.
His mind reeled. Now, empowered to ask questions of utmost rudeness- and promised answers- he could, conceivably (though it was almost unimaginable), ask someone, some adult, his father perhaps: "Do you lie?" But he had no way of knowing if the answer he received were true.
We really have to protect people from wrong choices.
But everyone would be burdened and pained. They don't want that. And that's the real reason The Receiver is so vital to them, and so honored. They selected me-- and you--to lift that burden from themselves.
Jonas did not want to go back. He didn't want the memories, didn't want the honor, didn't want the wisdom, didn't want the pain. He wanted his childhood again, his scraped knees and ball games.
Sometimes I wish they'd ask for my wisdom more often-there are so many things I could tell them; things I wish they would change. But they don't want change. Life here is so orderly, so predictable-so painless. It's what they've chosen.
