    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".
  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.

    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.

    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.

    The House of the Scorpion af Nancy Farmer (jbarry)
    jbarry: futuristic take on biomedical ethics and mindbendingly complicated relationships

like drinking hot chocolate, really comfortable and satisfying to read.

choosing to interpret the ending as Jonas gradually dying from exposure whilst hallucinating, it was an excellent book.

if it's meant to be a happy ending with him going off to live in Christmas land then "fuck that" magical narnia bollocks.

as I read the last chapter both interpretations seemed equally valid. I though this duality and potential confusion ended the book really well :) ( )

The life where nothing was ever unexpected. Or inconvenient. Or unusual. The life without colour, pain or past.

47. A classic book you've always meant to read ( )

This book discusses story of Jonas, an Eleven who lives in a society where everything is peaceful and ordered. He is about to go through the Ceremony of Twelve, where he is assigned a job. When he does go through the Ceremony, he receives an extremely elusive job that teaches him a lot about his world. He starts to gain memories which could alter everything he knows to be true.

When I first started reading this book, I was a bit skeptical. My initial thought was that this book was going to be a bit boring like the the rest of the books I have been required to read for school. This book turned out to be incredible! It was full of so many twists and turns! It gave me a new perspective on what perfect means! Overall, I would rate this book five out of five stars! ( )

I truly don't understand why this book is supposed to be such a wonderful classic. I hate endings that leave you hanging like this one does. Most of the book was good, but the lack of resolution at the end essentially ruined the book for me. ( )

It was almost December, and Jonas was beginning to be frightened.
Citater
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.
