Jonas's world is perfect. Everything is under control. There is no war or fear of pain. There are no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the community.

Now, it is time for Jonas to receive the truth. There is no turning back.

  • The Giver

    Needed the book for a child's assignment. Convenient to order from O instead of driving around looking for the book. Arrived on time and served it's purpose.

  • The Giver

    This is an easy, but must read. Keeps you interested the whole way through. Although it took a little long for the book to arrive after ordering (16 days for one small book), it was well worth the wait.

  • The Giver

    It's the book I ordered, but not the one I thought it was. IMy fault for being uninformed that there were more than one version of this book available. The book I intended to purchase was much larger - this one appears to have been edited down by at least 50% from the original version.

  • Amazing

    I had to read this as an assignment in school a few years back. It's an amazing book! It pulls you in leaving you wanting more. Lois Lowry did an amazing job in writing such a fasinating tale in a world apart from any other.
