    Brave New World por Aldous Huxley (chrisharpe, afyfe)
    chrisharpe: I see I am in a minority but, although the idea behind the book is a good one, The Giver struck me as quite clumsy. A much more effective exploration of similar themes is Huxley's "Brave New World".

    Tuck Everlasting por Natalie Babbitt (_Zoe_)
    _Zoe_: Another children's book that manages both to entertain and to make you think. These are two of my favourites.

    Uglies por Scott Westerfeld (KamTonnes)
    KamTonnes: Uglies and The Giver both portray societies that limit conflict by having very specific rules, roles, and expectations for everyone. Also, in both stories, the main characters slowly start to question the values of their respective communities.

Chapter book about a dystopian society set in the future. A young boy named Jonas becomes the "receiver of memories" from the Giver in a society where there is no crime or sadness. Jonas must make a choice, to continue to live in this environment given what he now knows, or set free everyone's minds and unleash all of the memories to the world. I liked this book, I think it will always be a classic. I would definitely use this book in an older classroom. I don't think this book would be good for 3rd grade or lower, just because of the more mature/difficult content and complex language.

I would recommend this book to higher grade levels, such as 3rd grade and up. It has some mature and graphic scenes and topics that would be better for a less sensitive audience. Overall, I really liked the book and how I was on the edge of my seat the whole time reading it. I feel this book would be great for introducing students to higher level books and topics. ( )

The Giver is an absolutely amazing read and is definitely one that I would recommend to anyone to read. The story itself is a real mind bender as it makes you think about our own history and why it is so important that we retain certain things in our memories as unpleasant as they might be. If I was to recommend this to a specific age level then I would say that this would be a great middle school read as its a little challenging but definitely not high school level.
  Cbonham21 | Feb 5, 2024 |
This is clearly a novel about the dangers of uniformity and the necessity for pain in order for there to be beauty. I would use this in an older classroom... 5th or 6th ish
  stewartj22 | Jan 31, 2024 |
This book, to me, fits well within a 5th or 6th grade setting. It has some more mature themes to it that should be saved for an older group of kids. The story is about a young boy Jonas, who is about to take on an assigned role as he becomes an adult in his community. His role is the Receiver which he is chosen for and that role sees him receiving all the memories of the past from the past receiver, or The Giver. Throughout his training Jonas realizes that the community he lives in deserves to know the memories of the past. He chooses to run away from his community in the end, leaving everything behind. I would use this book in an older classroom to give the students a sense of strong fiction, there are some strong themes to this book so I would want to make sure I had a class that I knew was strong enough to read it.

It was almost December, and Jonas was beginning to be frightened.

His mind reeled. Now, empowered to ask questions of utmost rudeness- and promised answers- he could, conceivably (though it was almost unimaginable), ask someone, some adult, his father perhaps: "Do you lie?" But he had no way of knowing if the answer he received were true.
We really have to protect people from wrong choices.
But everyone would be burdened and pained. They don't want that. And that's the real reason The Receiver is so vital to them, and so honored. They selected me-- and you--to lift that burden from themselves.
Jonas did not want to go back. He didn't want the memories, didn't want the honor, didn't want the wisdom, didn't want the pain. He wanted his childhood again, his scraped knees and ball games.
Sometimes I wish they'd ask for my wisdom more often-there are so many things I could tell them; things I wish they would change. But they don't want change. Life here is so orderly, so predictable-so painless. It's what they've chosen.
