What would we do in a world without color? Without feelings or music? One would think we’d be a bunch of robots. But this is Jonas’s reality. Everything in the community where he lives is ideal. However, this means that everything is the same. No pain, no feelings, nor anything that would single out anybody as different.
I’ve read a lot of dystopian fiction lately, and every author has their own take on it. But Lois Lowery is different even in that respect. The Giver does not have any huge rebellion. Only a simple choice. A choice that changes everything for Jonas.
