Product Description

Thus begins this haunting story in which a boy inhabits a seemingly ideal world: a world without conflict, poverty, unemployment, divorce, injustice, or inequality. It is a time in which family values are paramount, teenage rebellion is unheard of, and even good manners are a way of life. 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. Unabridged. Read by Ron Rifkin. 4 CDs. 4 hours, 48 minutes.

    As one of many frequently challenged books, The Giver does contain many social themes that may be disturbing. That's the point. As with all things, parents should be guiding and teaching their children along the way. Many (if not all) of the themes presented in this book are things that have actually been witnessed recently and in the past. So many great conversations can be had with children. Why not listen to it together? Btw, as a librarian, I always recommend that parents read the books that their kids read.

    I would suggest that parents proceed with caution. First check this out of the public library and listen to it carefully yourself. The issues covered in this work are chilling and very grown up. It could be useful if you use it for lessons regarding life and death.
