Item description for El dador by Lois Lowry...

Living in a "perfect" world without social ills, a boy nears the time when he will receive a life assignment from the Elders, but his selection leads him to a man known as the Giver, who reveals the dark secrets behind the facade.

Publishers Description
Magnifica historia que nos presenta a un joven, Jonas, que vive en una Comunidad totalmente controlada y donde todos sus miembros tienen un papel asignado por el Comite de Ancianos, maximo organismo de mando. Sus habitantes no sufren, ni carecen de nada, pero, a cambio, estan privados de libertad. Jonas, un joven de doce anos, recibe en la Ceremonia del Doce, la mision mas relevante dentro de la Comunidad: Jonas sera el encargado de sustituir a un anciano cuya funcion es la de mantener los recuerdos de la Comunidad. El anciano, "El Dador," empieza a transmitir a Jonas los recuerdos que el posee. Al principio Jonas adquiere sensaciones sencillas como el color, el sol, la nieve, las montanas... Para despues entrar en contacto con el amor, la guerra, la muerte... Estas nuevas experiencias, le haran plantearse muchas actitudes consideradas normales dentro de la Comunidad y a dudar de si para evitar el sufrimiento y la tristeza renunciando al amor y la libertad. En esta clase de relatos de ficcion dirigido a jovenes, se proponen problemas muy humanos: la libertad, la esclavitud, la felicidad, el respeto a la vida. El protagonista, con decision y valentia, sabe salir del cerco que le tiende la Comunidad. Detras de la montana le espera una vida diferente.

Lois Lowry, has done it again! Another 5 star book!  Jun 16, 2000
This book is great! Very hard to put it down. Lowry has made some really great books, but this one is the best! This is a 10 star book!
This Book belongs in the same class as 1984, Brave New World  Feb 5, 2000
this book is a fabulous tool for teaching students about theattempt to perfect society, to take out the human factor fromrelationships. I find the ending, which leaves it up to the reader to decide what happens to Jonas and Gabriel to be an invaluable way to engage students in the critical thinking process. When my students are finished with this book they are drained emotionally. So am I. Ms. Lowry has written a modern classic that is for all ages, not just children.
Mysterious book but definitly breathtaking  Apr 23, 1999
This book is so mysterious. It brings out a different you. the ending is confusing. you have to ask a librarian or teacher about the ening to know the TRUE ENDING
I really liked it but I thought the ending just dropped you.  Nov 24, 1996
