Description
(Winner of the 1993 Newbery Medal) In this first book of the Giver Quartet—the inspiration for the major motion picture featuring Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep—young Jonas is happy in the perfectly ordered Community, a place without war or fear but also without passion. Matched couples have exactly two children who, at the age of 12, are given drugs to calm their adolescent desires and are sent into careers by the Council of Elders. Citizens who are too old or incapable of serving the Community are "released." But Jonas is selected to be a Receiver of Memories—the vessel for all known history, back to the time before the Community—and the memories infused into him by the Giver fill him with a terrible knowledge of the fallacy that underpins his entire world. This edition includes interviews with the film's co-stars Taylor Swift, Brenton Thwaites, and Cameron Monaghan. First published in 1993, The Giver introduced young adult readers to a bizarre, colorless future where nothing was quite what it seemed. Lois Lowry explored that world even further in Gathering Blue, Messenger, and Son, creating the saga now known as the Giver Quartet. Also the author of Number the Stars, Lowry won her second Newbery Medal for this vivid dystopian tale.
