Book Review: The Giver -Lois Lowry

The Giver (The Giver, #1)
Jonas's world is perfect. Everything is under control. There is no war or fear or pain. There are no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the Community. When Jonas turns twelve, he is singled out to receive special training from The Giver. The Giver alone holds the memories of the true pain and pleasure of life. Now, it is time for Jonas to receive the truth. There is no turning back.

3/5 stars (liked it)
This is a very short book (less than 200 pages) but I liked it. There are many things in these short pages.  Jonas really grows up and begins to understand things.  Also Giver seems to get new insight by listening and talking with Jonas.  There were some things in this book that really surprised me.  I would really love to see what happens next to Jonas.

The rest of the series is equally excellent. You find out what happens to Jonas and Gabe a little bit at a time in each of the following books. The final book in the series just came out last month and it was really good.
