I read this book in one sitting. I could not put it down. Defiantly one of, if not the best fantasy book I have ever read. It is an utterly cold novel about social acceptance. Every page of The Giver was spellbinding and captivating. However very interesting the story it is still a little confusing. A world without colors, loves, pain, and so on. This world is interesting yet, scary. I consider this book to be among the best books ever published. Found in the children or young readers sections your local library I would recommend everyone give this a read, you will not be disappointed.

I could never in my wildest dreams live in such a world. How sad not to know music, love or memories. I am over half way finished and I wish this story were longer…."
