Thought-provoking, enthralling, and awesome!
It's a similar feel to A Brave New World and 1984, but not. Also similar to the movie The Village. All about a life of ease and simplicity at the cost of much, much more. A story of breaking free.
Jonas. He's a young boy who has his eyes opened to the stifling nature of his community. He's inquisitive and honest.
I LOVE this book. I read it for the first time in 7th grade - before it was banned in schools. I try to read it once every few years. I'm new to Audible so I downloaded it for my husband and I to read. He loved it as well. The only negative is Ron Rifkin's never ending case of dry mouth. Smacking lips really annoy me, so it was hard to get passed that. However, he did an amazing job reading the characters and the story was top notch, as always.
My husband and I listened to this over the course of a month on our hour long commute. Amazing book. Amazing man. Amazing writing. We couldn't recommend this more.
