My mom taught me to read when i was 3 and i've been reading ever since. I LOVE to read and now 'listen' to books.
I saw the movie, first, didn't realize there was a book so had to read/listen. Nice story. Terribly terribly sad at times but also very enlightening. I cannot imagine the pain of losing so much of myself, but in all honesty, i think there is life after .... i would hope that in the event of my losing my physical 'self' i would learn to live a new life. Follow the new path life handed me. Easy for me to say ... now ... Life is a gift, not to be thrown back in the face of the Giver. I hope i never have to make the choice Will made or have to live with the choice like Lou did. A very thought-provoking story. Well worth a credit and will definitely re-read at some point.
I loved this story and enjoyed the reader, her voice seemed to bring the story alive and added in the needed humor. I can't wait to read the next one and I hope the movie does the book justice!!

Made me cry like I have never before! Made me feel it as if I was a part of it. Everything felt so real. Simple yet very touching language. Best book on my audio list so far. May listen to it again and may be again and may be again.
Loved the multiple narrators, definitely helped bring out their different personalities and points of view. Excellent! Thoroughly enjoyed this book!
I read this book because my bookclub had picked it. My expectations were low because I rarely like the books they pick. Surprisingly I really liked this book. It is thoughtful and has great character development.
