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.

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)

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.
