This dystopian world is a conservative Republican’s wet dream (that’s not a joke; just let that sink in).
Very short, but precise, concise, powerful stuff. The more you advance, the more feelings unravel, the more emotions you feel.
We take so much for granted, many many many things that make us humans. Heck, things that make us living, breathing multi-cellular organisms!
I implore you, read this pamphlet of a novel. Believe me, you will not come untouched by it.
Jonas’s world is perfect. Everything is under control. There is no war or fear of pain. There are no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the community. When Jonas turns 12 he is singled out to receive special training from The Giver. The Giver alone holds the memories of the true pain and pleasure of life. Now, it is time for Jonas to receive the truth. There is no turning back.
