My Review: I think this is a really important book. It provokes many thoughts and feelings in relation to both the world that is presented to us in the story, and our own world, as well. I, often, have felt, especially in terms of expanding consciousness, a lot of the emotions that were triggered in Jonas from the memories, the community’s rules and drives, and the unknown blindness and ignorance of everyone else, and I think these are themselves transferred and given to the reader through language (including gratefulness for what we do have, and frustration and eye-opening awareness at all of the things many in our world today haven’t questioned, that once noticed cannot be just set aside again, like the need for control and security, to the point of lies, corruption and shallow lives, for example.) I think this book should be read and understood by as many people as possible, for the sake of moving humanity forward in Love.
