    Inhaltsangabe

    December is the time of the annual Ceremony at which each twelve-year-old receives a life assignment determined by the Elders. Jonas watches his friend Fiona named Caretaker of the Old and his cheerful pal Asher labeled the Assistant Director of Recreation. But Jonas has been chosen for something special. When his selection leads him to an unnamed man, the man called only the Giver, he begins to sense the dark secrets that underlie the fragile perfection of his world.

    Told with deceptive simplicity, this is the provocative story of a boy who experiences something incredible and undertakes something impossible. In the telling it questions every value we have taken for granted and reexamines our most deeply held beliefs.

    ©1993 Lois Lowry (P)1993 Random House, Inc., Listening Library, An Imprint Of Random House Audio Publishing Group

    Kritikerstimmen

    "A powerful and provocative novel." ( The New York Times)
    "Lowry is once again in top form...unwinding a tale fit for the most adventurous readers." ( Publishers Weekly)
    "The author makes real abstract concepts, such as the meaning of a life in which there are virtually no choices to be made and no experiences with deep feelings. This tightly plotted story and its believable characters will stay with readers for a long time." ( School Library Journal)
    "This is a compelling prospect for family listening...[Ron] Rifkin's juxtaposition of the young boy and the old Giver has tremendous effect." ( AudioFile)

    kind of a dystopia

    I've bought the audio book because we have to read it in school. I'm actually German so I apologize for my English grammar.
    I liked the book but I think it's more like a book for kids because the writting style and the sentences are simple. However the concept is very thoughtful - I really think the future could be like this. So it's important to know this book and to catch up on this topic.
    It's a good book in between. And it helped me with my English because the speaker is very great. I could understand his telling very well.

    So eine schöne Geschichte

    Philosophisch, reflektierend - herzerwärmend!
    Nur zu empfehlen!
    Der Sprecher hat eine angenehme Stimme und das Sprechtempo ist entspannt. Die Musik im Hintergrund hätte es meines Erachtens nicht gebraucht.

    Tolles Buch, nicht so tolle Aufnahme

    Das Buch an sich ist toll. Eine interessante dystopische Welt und eine nachdenklich machende Geschichte eines Jungen. Auch für Erwachsene geeignet. Nur der Sprecher und die Musik haben mir nicht so zugesagt. Liegt vielleicht daran, dass das Hörbuch von 1995 stammt.
