About the ”The Giver by Lois Lowry”

The Giver is a utopian book written by Lois Lowry about a young boy called Jonas who lives in a future society that has endeavored to deprive its residents of their freedoms in order to maintain sameness, justice, and equality. Jonas lives with his parents and younger sister Lily; his father is a Nurturer, while his mother is employed by the Department of Justice. Every December, they organize a ceremony in which each kid gets a year of schooling and extra benefits. Jonas, who is eleven at the start of the novel, will be allocated his future employment. Jonas has pale eyes, which are uncommon in his culture, but he notes that Gabriel, a youngster whom his father looks for and sometimes comes home for aid, has them as well.

The Giver by Lois Lowry Summary

The Giver is told through the eyes of Jonas, an eleven-year-old child who lives in a future civilization free of suffering, fear, violence, and hate. Because everyone looks and behaves the same, there is no discrimination, and there is minimal competitiveness. Everyone is always courteous. The society has also removed choice: at the age of twelve, each community member is allocated a job based on his or her aptitude and interests. Citizens may apply for suitable spouses, who are then allocated to them, and each couple is given precisely two children. The kids are delivered to Birthmothers who will never see them, and they will spend their first year at a Nurturing Center alongside other babies, or “nonchildren,” who were born that year. When their children have grown up, families disband, and parents live with Childless Adults until they are no longer able to participate in society. Then they are cared for in the House of the Old for the rest of their lives until they are ultimately “released” from society. Most people believe that following release, imperfect nonchildren and cheerful old people are welcomed into the enormous expanse of Elsewhere that surrounds the settlements, yet release is never stated that way. Citizens who breach the laws or fail to adhere to the society’s standards of conduct are also freed, but it is a source of tremendous embarrassment in such situations. Everything has been designed and structured to make living as easy and enjoyable as possible.

Jonas shares a home with his father, a Newborn Nurturer, his mother, a Department of Justice employee, and his seven-year-old sister Lily. He is nervous about the forthcoming Ceremony of Twelve, when he will be granted his formal Assignment as a new adult member of the society, at the start of the story. He doesn’t have a certain professional interest, although he likes helping in a variety of settings. Jonas is uncommon, even though he is a well-behaved citizen and an excellent student: he has pale eyes, when most individuals in his town have dark eyes, and he has remarkable sensing skills. When he stares at some items, they “transform.” He doesn’t realize it yet, but he is the only person in his society who can see flashes of color; for everyone else, the world is as devoid of color as it is of pain, hunger, and inconvenient situations.

Jonas is handed the prestigious Assignment of Receiver of Memory during the Ceremony of the Twelve. The Receiver is the single custodian of the collective memory of the community. The society abandoned all memories of pain, conflict, and emotion when it transitioned to Sameness—its painless, warless, and essentially emotionless state of tranquillity and harmony—but memories of pain, war, and emotion could not be completely erased. Even though no one save the Receiver can handle the anguish, someone must keep them so that the community does not repeat the errors of the past. The present Receiver, a wise old man who encourages Jonas to call him the Giver, gives Jonas the memories of the past, both good and evil.

The Giver sends memories to Jonas by laying his hands on his bare back. An thrilling sled ride is the first memory he gets. Jonas sees how monotonous and empty life in his village is when he gets memories from the Giver—memories of pleasure and sorrow, vibrant colors and severe cold and warm sun, excitement and horror, hunger and love. Jonas’ life is richer and more meaningful as a result of his memories, and he hopes he could pass on that richness and meaning to the people he cares about. However, in return for their calm life, Jonas’ community’s residents have lost their ability to love him or have great emotion about anything. Because they have never had true hardship, they are unable to understand true pleasure in life, and the lives of individual individuals seem to them to be less valuable. Furthermore, no one in Jonas’ community has ever made a decision on their own. Jonas becomes more upset with his community’s members, and the Giver, who has shared his feelings for many years, encourages him. They become very close, much as a grandpa and a grandson would before Sameness, when family members maintained touch long after their children had grown up.

Meanwhile, Jonas is assisting his family with the care of a problematic newcomer at the Nurturing Center, Gabriel, who is having difficulties sleeping through the night. Jonas soothes the youngster to sleep by sending him peaceful memories every night, and he starts to form a bond with Gabriel that resembles the family bonds he has seen via the memories. When Gabriel is about to be freed, the Giver tells Jonas that being released is the same as dying. Jonas’ fury and disgust at this discovery prompts the Giver to assist Jonas in devising a plan to completely transform the village. The Giver tells Jonas about the girl who was chosen 10 years ago to be the next Receiver. She was the Giver’s own daughter, but the grief of some of the memories had been too much for her, and she had requested to be freed. When she died, all of her memories were released into the community, and many were unable to cope with the unexpected onslaught of emotion and experience. The Giver and Jonas devise a scheme for Jonas to flee the society and enter Elsewhere. After then, his bigger supply of memories will scatter, and the Giver will assist the people in coming to grips with the new sensations and ideas, permanently altering society.

When Jonas’ father informs him that Gabriel will be freed the following day, he is obliged to depart sooner than expected. Jonas takes his father’s bicycle and a supply of food and sets off towards Elsewhere, desperate to rescue Gabriel. He gradually reaches a scene rich in color, creatures, and changeable weather, as well as hunger, danger, and tiredness. Jonas and Gabriel travel for a long time, avoiding search aircraft, until thick snow makes biking impossible. Jonas climbs a steep hill, half-frozen but consoling Gabriel with memories of sunlight and friendliness. At the top, he discovers a sled—his first transferred memory’s sled—waiting for him. On the sled, Jonas and Gabriel had a fantastic downhill ride. They see—or believe they see—the glittering lights of a pleasant community during the Christmas season ahead of them, and they hear music. Jonas is certain that someone will be waiting for them.
