Journal Entry 1 by yazi on Sunday, May 22, 2005
Although intended for young adult readers I really enjoyed this book.

The story of a Jonas, a 12 year old boy, living in an artifiaclly perfect world that is free of suffering, fear, pain and war.

In this world each person is assigned a task from the begining of life. Coming of age is strictly controlled..even getting a bicycle is only allowed at a specific age.

Jonas task: to be The Giver. In this role he will hold the memories of the true pain and pleasure that existed in the world in the time before everything was "perfect". He must be trained by the previous Giver....
