The theme of the book is about getting through pain or what is in the real world like when you are getting released you get killed which no one else in the community knows about. In the book they don't experience color which lets you give you the option on what you like better.

The setting in the book is in a community where there are Elders where they decide all of the rules and they go to The Receiver for advise and wisdom. In the past they removed all memory of color, pain, hunger,etc. . To keep the people from certain things. Now the people have no difference except for a different shape and gender.

Book Recommendation

I liked this book because it has a big impact on what life is really about. It teaches you that there will be some bumps in the road and some steady smooth places. In the book it shows that the elders doesn't want the community to experience pain, hunger, or even Christmas. I have heard some good recommendations on this book and I'm glad that this happened because this book really changed my life. Also in the book the Chief elder said that Jonas could lie so people won't find out the stuff that he does at work. Cause the stuff that he does is very private he can't even tell his parents about it. This book I really recommend to anybody.
