Quicklet on Lois Lowry's the Giver (cliffnotes-like Summary & Analysis)eBook - 2012
What comes to mind when you envision a perfect society? Does it consist solely of happiness and peace? Are there equal rights for everyone regardless of gender, age and/or ethnic background? What about the weather, wildlife and natural landscapes? Is there a limit to the number of children families can have, or even to how they go about producing them? Is there a fair judicial system in place? Lois Lowry's The Giver tells the story of such a utopian society in which twelve-year old Jonas is the main character. Although his society might at first seem perfect and balanced-there are, after all, no feelings, hunger, inequalities or pain-Jonas eventually realizes that his community has been missing out on all that life has to offer, calling into question the very concept of "ideal."The Giver, Lois Lowry's 21st novel, was published in 1993 and earned a Newbery Medal in 1994, "[becoming] an almost instant classic."
