Book Summary

The book is about a boy named Jonas who is eleven turning twelve along with all the other eleven year old at the ceremony of twelve. The society has taken away pain and suffering by creating "Sameness," a plan that has also taken the emotional depth from their lives. Jonas is selected to the position of Receiver of Memory, the person who stores all the past memories of the time before Sameness, so if there is a new problem that the committee of elders have he can give them advice. Jonas struggles with his feelings from all of the new emotions, and things being introduced to him, and whether they are good, evil, in-between, and if it's even possible to have one without the other. The Community lacks any color, memory, climate and terrain whatsoever, all in effort to preserve structure, order, and a true sense of equality beyond personal individuality.

Book Rating

If I were to rate this book I would give it 3 out of 5 stars. My reason, simply because the plot was slow and there was barely even any action. Plus it gets boring very easily and I didn't like how it ended, for me I was kind of annoyed because I stuck around through the dimmer parts and they ended it the way they did.
