The story is ab tabu Jonas, who lives in a closed club sometime in the far future. All children are interpreted from their birthmothers and live with professional nurturers for a year, then they are depute to family units. Each family can apply for two children; they do non have their own children. It gets weirder from there.
As we enter the story, Jonas is about to be given his lifetime assignment in a communion which each children must attend each year. As submarine of our story, he does not even get an assignment, but so championr is selected to be the new Receiver of Memory (there is only one such Receiver in the community). So to find out about the special talents and work of the Receiver, we must take away the take a breather of the book.
I am finding some adult subjects in the book that nobody ever mentioned to me in the reviews I read before -- such as nudity is discussed, stirrings, and birth-parenting. Stirrings are of channel suppressed by a daily pill, by all members of the community. Maybe this would be better read by children at the age of puberty. My kids, at ages 8 and 9 are genuinely not understanding it all (I could be wrong there) and postulation a lot of questions! March 6, 1999 - We finished this book lastly night. Wow. It was really strange but by the end we were utilize to it. I really dont recommend this book for children as youthfulness as mine (8 and 9).
The boy in the story is 12 and it seems to me that 12 is probably a young enough age to read this, because it covers some mature subjects such as sexuality, emotions and escape of them, and infanticide. My kids seemed confused about certain things up until the end. For example, Cimeron asked several measure How did Jonas get the memories? and did not seem to grasp the story marge regarding transference of memories between the Giver and the Receiver. Perhaps my kids are in force(p) not ready for fantasy books. Anyhow, we are done with it now, and I am glad I read it. I count on this is a good book for teens to read because it makes one believe about the value of our emotions and differences.
