The Giver

露易丝·劳瑞

Lois Lowry

Jonas's world is perfect. Everything is under control. There is no war or fear or pain. There are no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the Community. When Jonas turns twelve, he is singled out to receive special training from The Giver. The Giver alone holds the memories of the true pain and pleasure of life. Now, it is time for Jonas to receive the truth. There is no turning back.

The Giver is a novel written by Lois Lowry and published on April 16, 1993. 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. Jonas is selected to inherit the position of "Receiver of Memory," the person who stores all the memories of the time before Sameness, in case they are ever needed to aid in decisions that others lack the experience to make. As Jonas receives the memories from his predecessor-the "Giver"-he discovers how shallow his community's life has become.

Despite controversy and criticism that the book's subject material is inappropriate for young children, The Giver won the 1994 Newbery Medal and has sold more than 5.3 million copies. In Australia, the United States and Canada it is a part of many middle school reading lists, but it is also on many banned book lists. The novel forms a loose trilogy with Gathering Blue (2000) and Messenger (2004), two other books set in the same future era.

《记忆传授人》(The Giver) 是一部人文科幻小说。作者洛伊丝·洛利,于1993年4月16日出版。

《The Giver》中文又译为《记忆受领员》或《授者》。

小说开篇构建了一个类似乌托邦的未来社会。随着情节铺展,逐渐幻化成反面乌托邦。小说描述一个名叫乔纳斯(Jonas)的男孩在12岁那一年发生的故事。经过刻意同化,乔纳斯生活的社区没有痛苦,也没有冲突,人们的生活不带一丝感情。乔纳斯被挑选出来接任“记忆接受者”这个职位,接受同化之前人类所有的记忆,以备在需要的时候使用。乔纳斯从他的前任——赐予者——那儿获得了这些记忆,他发现他所生活的社区极为浅薄封闭。获得了1994年的纽伯瑞儿童文学奖,销售量过三百五十万册。在美国,它位列很多初级中学的必读书目,但是同时本书也属被禁之列(“见以下争议”)。人们惯常把这部小说和《忧郁聚集》(Gathering Blue)(2000年),以及《报讯者》(Messenger)(2004年)并称三部曲,但是三本书之间关系并不大,后两部书也是描述未来的小说。

全球热销电影版同名科幻小说!全球销量300万册!因为有不美好,所以才会有美好;因为有了背叛,才懂得真心的可贵;因为有了失败,才有了成功的骄傲,这真是一本值得永远珍藏的书!

电影《赐予者》原著小说《记忆传授人》:故事发生在一个类似乌托邦的未来社会里。这个社会里没有记忆、感情、颜色和音乐,人们只拥有较基本的生活需求;一 切事情都被安排得井井有条,孩子们在规定好的统一模式里长大。当12岁的乔纳斯成为新任“记忆传授人”之后,他却陡然发现他所生活的极为浅薄封闭,支 撑这个社会的不过是谎言。于是他决定要改变一切……
