9780007578498: The Giver (The Giver Quartet)

In a perfect world, Jonas begins to see the flaws... 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. It is the future. There is no war, no hunger, no pain. No one in the community wants for anything. Everything needed is provided. And at twelve years old, each member of the community has their profession carefully chosen for them by the Committee of Elders. Twelve-year old Jonas has never thought there was anything wrong with his world. But from the moment he is selected as the Receiver of Memory, Jonas discovers that their community is not as perfect as it seems. It is only with the help of the Giver, that Jonas can find what has been lost. And it is only through his personal courage that Jonas finds the strength to do what is right... The Giver is the award-winning classic of bravery and adventure that has inspired countless dystopian writers as the forerunner of this genre.

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. Buchnummer des Verkäufers K9780007578498
