Giver

by Lowry, Lois

The Giver is a 1993 novel by Lois Lowry. It is set in a future society which is at first presented as a utopian society and gradually appears more and more dystopian; therefore, it could be considered anti-utopian. The novel follows a boy named Jonas through the twelfth year of his life. The society has eliminated pain and strife by converting to "Sameness", a plan which has also eradicated emotional depth from their lives.

Excellent story of a dystopian world. Very well written with a young character easily associated with teens today.
On Oct 7, 2014, a reader said:
This was a classic long before it became a movie about the hidden problems of creating a utopian society.
