really liked it
bookshelves: audiobook, series-finished

Want a really good dystopian novel that is more thought and less action? You’ve got it here. I loved Jonas and his relationship with the Giver. I loved how Jonas learned that his grey, no decision, way of life was wrong and how it affected his emotional growth.

You’re probably thinking, “no action, meh.” Usually I would agree with you, take my review for 1984 for example, I bitched and moaned about how their was no action. This was different in a good way. Just as an aside, I probably would have like 1984 had I expected nothing from it. It’s like Blade Runner all over for me

It’s so amazing to watch Jonas learn to love. I really gotta recommend this to you.
