I cannot believe it took me until now to read this classic book. I am sad ("precision of language" - not sad, chagrined) to say that it was actually the release of the movie that prompted me to give it a go, because I refuse to see a movie that is based on a book before I read the book. Through the eyes of the Giver and Jonas, one can fully understand the definition of beauty, for there is beauty in everything, the good and the bad. 
This book, which some would say is the original dystopian novel, has zoomed straight to the top of my "Favorite Books of All Time" list. Not only do I recommend this book with highest regards, I would argue that it is one everyone should experience.


The Giver, Lois Lowry, 
Houghton Mifflin, 1993

I am enticed by how you describe this script. I have the desire to just get it and read through it. As I look into it, it is an award winning novel set in an alternative future at an unknown date and shares the themes with other well known classic. This will probably the best book I have to read in a long time. I hope that there are more books like this hereafter. I need to have this book.

I had discovered this book when I saw the trailer for the movie, it captured my attention so I decided to put it in my to read list. It has been months since I last check that list so I forgot about the books that I was supposed to read so I made up my mind to finish reading all the books listed during vacation. I want to read it right now, but I am still busy with work, at least this gave me a reason to look forward to. Just like you I do not want to watch a movie without reading the book first so I avoided all invitations that I got from my friends. I expect to be blown away by this book since it has a lot of good reviews and most of them rated this with 5 stars on review sites.

I just love classic literature. The feel, the word structure, the manner the english language is used, it's more beautiful. You can really see why these classic authors had the great reputation they had. It's like basking in a well of goodness that never ends. This book is definitely in my to-read list.
