The Giver

The Giver - Lois Lowry A small, impressive book that shows us a world which could be a utopia. Like Jonas, the protagonist, we learn at what cost this society has been created. Lois Lowry teaches the importance of free choice, of memories, and of being allowed to have feelings - all without preaching. I personally wasn't a huge fan of the ending but I think this book is a good choice for all those who are currently suffering from the YA dystopia craze. Readers are not treated as morons, the language is concise and the story written so well that people of all ages can enjoy it. For a full review go to SFF Book Review
