“The Giver” is an American dystopian novel published by the American writer Lois Lowry (according to a 2012 survey, it was rated as the 4th best children novel of all time). It portrays a society that has given up emotion, memories, color, individuality in favor of order, structure, and equality. Like any utopian/ dystopian work, “The Giver” helps to pinpoint the complex balance between positive and negative aspects of our individuality and collective existence - simple solutions at first sight might prove disastrous if enforced over everybody (this highlights the importance of freedom and natural evolution).
