summary

Jonas lives in a freaky world where there are big time rules and no one thinks for themselves. Everything is the same there is no music, no color, no pain. Jonas is assigned the job of Receiver of Memory, a big deal. He goes to see the Giver and begins to learn all about the way things used to be, like the way our world is now. Some things are great, some things suck, but nothing is the same. The more Jonas learns about having choices and the bad things that happen in his world the more he wants to escape.

Overall Rating

I give this novel 3 stars because the book was very boring until near the end. Also the end was bad and left us wondering what would happen once they got down from the hill.
