This is about a woman striking up a love affair at the office she works at and the wh
on Amazon.co.uk the only product description are two short reviews:
‘A hilarious delve into someone else’s daily life’
It is set in a future society which is at first presented as a utopian society and gradually appears more and more dystopian; therefore, it could be considered anti-utopian. The novel follows a boy named Jonas through the twelfth year of his life. The society has eliminated pain and strife by converting to “Sameness”, a plan which has also eradicated emotional depth from their lives. Jonas is selected to inherit the position of “Receiver of Memory,” the person who stores all the memories of the time before Sameness, in case they are ever needed to aid in decisions that others lack the experience to make. As Jonas receives the memories from the previous receiver—the “Giver”—he discovers how shallow his community’s life has become. It is written in the third-person.
Now, I love books like this, Orwellian in theme. Thank you boys!
