    1984 door George Orwell (cflorente)

    Het verhaal van de dienstmaagd door Margaret Atwood (cflorente)
  3. 181
    Heerlijke nieuwe wereld door Aldous Huxley (chrisharpe, afyfe)
    chrisharpe: I see I am in a minority but, although the idea behind the book is a good one, The Giver struck me as quite clumsy. A much more effective exploration of similar themes is Huxley's "Brave New World".
  4. 192
    De Hongerspelen door Suzanne Collins (writecathy)
  5. 150
    Sintel Stad in het duister door Jeanne DuPrau (FFortuna)
    FFortuna: The Giver is much darker, but are similar in premise.
  6. 176
    Eeuwig en altijd Tuck door Natalie Babbitt (_Zoe_)
    _Zoe_: Another children's book that manages both to entertain and to make you think. These are two of my favourites.
  7. 110
    Uglies door Scott Westerfeld (KamTonnes)
    KamTonnes: Uglies and The Giver both portray societies that limit conflict by having very specific rules, roles, and expectations for everyone. Also, in both stories, the main characters slowly start to question the values of their respective communities.
  8. 100
    Vlammen door Suzanne Collins (jessicastatzer)
  9. 51
    Matched laat je niet meer los door Ally Condie (Trojanprincess, frankiejones)
    Trojanprincess: The two worlds seem similar in the way that every aspect of their livee are controlled.
  10. 40
    The House of the Scorpion door Nancy Farmer (jbarry)
    jbarry: futuristic take on biomedical ethics and mindbendingly complicated relationships
  11. 40
    Wij door Yevgeny Zamyatin (chrisharpe)
    chrisharpe: Similar themes, We is a lot better written.
  12. 52
    Ender's Game door Orson Scott Card (ubcsfs)
  13. 30
    Dromen androïden over elektrische schapen? door Philip K. Dick (mcenroeucsb)
  14. 10
    The Owl Keeper door Christine Brodien-Jones (wordcauldron)
    wordcauldron: Similarly brain-washy story about a controlled society and how the government tries to suppress the talented people who could break it all down and bring freedom and individualism.

    Laat me nooit alleen door Kazuo Ishiguro (rhondagrantham)
  16. 10
    Among the Hidden door Margaret Peterson Haddix (BookshelfMonstrosity)
    BookshelfMonstrosity: In these riveting, suspenseful and thought-provoking dystopian novels, 12-year-old boys learn from inspirational figures about the true nature of their repressive societies: Jonas, from the elderly Giver; Luke, from another hidden -- albeit, more privileged and knowledgeable -- "third child."… (meer)

Molto bello, consigliato da leggere anche da adult! ( )

Classic for a reason. It is a good introduction to some hard ideas, such as the importance of suffering in our lives and what could happen if a society attempted to eradicate it, self-sacrifice, the importance of individuality and choices.

very late to the party with this one. Finally picked back up on reading the newbery books. Dystopian book from the point of view of a child. think the point is that when you start giving up things for safety and pushing for shared experience, you can lose a lot of diversity, strength and joy. Certainly held my interest throughout ( )

I read this book in several hours. It was amazing. While some parts were hard to read (like the part where Jonas's father releases the twin & when his father talks about how Gabriel will be released the next morning), the book is still well worth reading. ( )

It was almost December, and Jonas was beginning to be frightened.
Citaten
Informatie afkomstig uit de Engelse Algemene Kennis. Bewerk om naar jouw taal over te brengen.
His mind reeled. Now, empowered to ask questions of utmost rudeness- and promised answers- he could, conceivably (though it was almost unimaginable), ask someone, some adult, his father perhaps: "Do you lie?" But he had no way of knowing if the answer he received were true.
We really have to protect people from wrong choices.
But everyone would be burdened and pained. They don't want that. And that's the real reason The Receiver is so vital to them, and so honored. They selected me-- and you--to lift that burden from themselves.
Jonas did not want to go back. He didn't want the memories, didn't want the honor, didn't want the wisdom, didn't want the pain. He wanted his childhood again, his scraped knees and ball games.
Sometimes I wish they'd ask for my wisdom more often-there are so many things I could tell them; things I wish they would change. But they don't want change. Life here is so orderly, so predictable-so painless. It's what they've chosen.
