    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".

    The City of Ember af Jeanne DuPrau (FFortuna)
    FFortuna: The Giver is much darker, but are similar in premise.

    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.

In the vein of CS Lewis, this books relies heavily on morality rather than character to develop the plot. However, it has a powerful message about the risk and reward of individuality and is an engaging read. Highly recommended. ( )

I made sure the video was available before I started reading The Giver. The book is quite ordinary, perhaps that's what is reigning this days. An Utopian where everything is well arranged. No one is envious of the other. And to me really, it is a nice arrangement. The community did not realize they were different so, what you don't know doesn't hurt you.
Only one person is allowed to be the sort of 'Librarian/Historian'. I like it because it is a different concept from the Hunger Games, Divergent, Maze Runner, 1984 (There are all people who withhold the truth from the citizens), at least from the book, the whole citizens of the community had there place and position those who didn't fit in were 'released'.
It an interesting read.

I may revisit my rating later. Right now I will go with 3 1/2 stars.

Great writing. Finished it in one sitting. Once I was done I realized that this is really just a simplified and shallower YA version of the thoroughly devastating masterpiece 1984. We are spoon fed the message through "the Giver" who is a teacher figure speaking directly to the protagonist and the audience.

However the whole message is rather muddy in the end--very different from 1984 which pulls no punches when Orwell writes "If you want to picture the future, picture a boot stomping on a human face--forever."

I also found the whole societal set up and total absence of explanation for many key elements (eg. how do you make a whole society color blind, or even why?) annoying as it came off to me as a plot device to make a point.

Fantastic book. I've intended to read it for a while, but my oldest son encouraged me to read it now because he wants to see the movie.

It can sometimes feel like were overwhelmed with dystopian novels, so it's important to remember that this predates The Hunger Games and its contemporary counterparts.

I definitely need to get the rest of the books in the series, as my son and I are both curious to learn what happens next. ( )

The Giver is a story about a young boy named Jonas who lives in a community of sameness, where the people are free of sadness and crime. At the age of 12, children are assigned their jobs, which they will train for and do for the rest of their lives. Everything in this society is chosen for the people, from their parents to their partner. Jonas stands apart from the community when he is chosen to become the new "Memory Keeper". This novel takes us on a journey through Jonas’ experiences and allows us as readers to see what happens when a society is protected from all harm and negativity. I believe this book is perfect for the middle school age, because of the depth and mature content it contains. The Giver discusses death and includes passages of violence and sexual content. This novel would be great for my English classes because there a lot of concepts/themes to unpack and would facilitate deep discussions with my students. The Giver will leave my students wanting more and allow them to see the world they live in from a new perspective. This book is a page turner and was one of the books I really enjoyed reading in middle school. ( )

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.
