    December is the time of the annual Ceremony at which each twelve-year-old receives a life assignment determined by the Elders. Jonas watches his friend Fiona named Caretaker of the Old and his cheerful pal Asher labeled the Assistant Director of Recreation. But Jonas has been chosen for something special. When his selection leads him to an unnamed man, the man called only the Giver, he begins to sense the dark secrets that underlie the fragile perfection of his world.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes - it is a very original plot with thought-provoking ideas. It's a book that you would want to read over again and despite the parts I didn't enjoy about the audiobook, it was overall still a good performance.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    There is music that is added to reading of the book that can be detracting and it seems very out of place. For me this was the most annoying part of the audiobook. Another minor thing is that there are sometimes pauses longer than normal between chapters that could have been easily cut out.I wasn't a fan of the narrators voice- it was a bit whiny and the different character voices were irritating at times.
