9780007578498: The Giver (The Giver Quartet)

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. Jonas lives in a seemingly ideal world.

When Jonas turns 12 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. Not until he is given his life assignment as the Receiver does Jonas begin to understand the dark secrets behind this fragile community. Now, it is time for Jonas to receive the truth. There is no turning back.

Review:

In a world with no poverty, no crime, no sickness and no unemployment, and where every family is happy, 12-year-old Jonas is chosen to be the community's Receiver of Memories. Under the tutelage of the Elders and an old man known as the Giver, he discovers the disturbing truth about his utopian world and struggles against the weight of its hypocrisy. With echoes of Brave New World, in this 1994 Newbery Medal winner, Lowry examines the idea that people might freely choose to give up their humanity in order to create a more stable society. Gradually Jonas learns just how costly this ordered and pain-free society can be, and boldly decides he cannot pay the price.

THE GIVER is the classic award-winning novel that inspired the dystopian genre and a major motion picture adaptation for 2014 starring Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, Katie Holmes and Taylor Swift. | Jonas lebt in einer Welt ohne Schmerz und Risiko, doch auch ohne Gefühle und ohne Erinnerung. Sein ganzes Leben ist geregelt und kollektiv verplant: Alle 6-Jährigen werden eingeschult, alle 9er werden mit einem Fahrrad ausgestattet, alle 25er bekommen einen Lebenspartner zugeteilt . Auch Jonas` Leben verläuft so, bis er zum Nachfolger des höchsten Amtes der Gemeinschaft bestellt wird: zum Hüter der Erinnerung . Dieser überträgt ihm, was sonst niemand mehr weiß oder fühlen kann - Erfahrungen, Erinnerungen, Schweiß, Blut und Tränen aus Jahrtausenden, aber auch Schönheit, Wärme und Liebe. Jonas soll dieses kollektive Gedächtnis der Menschheit stellvertretend für all die anderen bewahren, die in Unwissenheit gehalten werden. Doch je mehr Jonas erfährt, desto genauer durchschaut er das System, nach dem dies alles funktioniert. Als Jonas nicht dazu bereit ist, dieses Wissen in sich zu verschließen, bleibt ihm nur noch die Flucht . | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 175 gr | 198x128x16 mm | 223 pp. Codice libro della libreria K9780007578498
