Synopsis

Jonas, a young man governed by the control of tyrannical society is selected to be the next Receiver of Memory. In a world where everything is grayscale, he begins to receive memories of the past from the current Receiver. As Jonas begins to experience memories of love, pain, and color, he realizes that the society he lives in is far from perfect. With the help of the Giver, Jonas sets out to challenge the status quo and bring change to his community. The novel explores themes of individuality, freedom, and the importance of memories, emphasizing the dangers of a society that values conformity over individuality and the consequences of erasing the past.

This was a classic long before it became a movie about the hidden problems of creating a utopian society.
