    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".

    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.

The Giver by Lowis Lowry is a classic dystopia story that at first, is disguised as a utopia book. Centered around a 12-year-old boy who is chosen to receive the memories of the past, the book explores the power people have in their ability to make choices and encourages the reader to take action in their life. I would most definitely have a project assigned to this book due to the extensive use of this book in other classes and the resources available. ( )

This book is about the power of memories. While some might bring pain, they also bring happiness and the human experience. This book follows Jonas, a 12-year-old boy, in a dystopian world where no one feels pain and no one remembers the past. On his 12th birthday, Jonas is assigned the Receiver position. The Receiver must receive the memories of the past to make sure history doesn't repeat itself. Jonas soon realizes that the life they live now isn't really living at all. This book is great for kids in 6th grade and up. I personally read this as a kid and it still holds up as a great book about the human exsperiace. ( )

Podia haber sido bueno pero tiene demasiados defectos.

El concepto de la sociedad esta bien, un poco simple y tipico pero es un libro para jovenes, quiza es mejor algo asi simple. Es un libro corto y consigue describir bastante en este tiempo.

Lo malo, la otra gran idea aqui, la de "the giver" no tiene ni pies ni cabeza. Es tan incomprensible que hasta el personaje a cargo no tiene ni idea.

En general parece todo de plastico, muy artificial, como si se hubiera escrito al reves. El autor sabia lo que queria decir y para decirlo ha terjiversado toda logica. ( )

It was almost December, and Jonas was beginning to be frightened. No. Wrong word, Jonas thought. Frightened meant that deep, sickening feeling of something terrible about to happen. Frightened was the way he had felt a year ago when an unidentified aircraft had overflown the community twice. He had seen it both times
Squinting toward the sky, he had seen the sleek jet, almost a blur at it's high speed, go past, and a second later heard the blast of sound that followed. Then one more time. A moment later, from the oppositedirection, the same plane.

Interesting, but left me wanting to know a bit more about how this world came about. ( )

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.
