About This Item

This is an AUTOGRAPHED FIRST EDITION of The Giver, by Lois Lowry. Her inscription reads:

with love to those who read - remember - and GIVE - Lois Lowry 1994

This copy may have never been read - the spine is tight. There are some speckles at the top of the book which I will show in the pictures. There is also evidence of where a name/address sticker was placed inside.

Synopsis

The Giver is a 1993 novel by Lois Lowry. 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.
