This is a science fiction story by Sidney Sheldon. I was not sure that I would like this book because I had never read science fiction books before. Well like most of his books he is the master of words. This was a story about a guy named Robert Bellamy a US Navy Commander who was assigned to find 11 people who saw the crash of a weather balloon. Every time he finds a person they turn up dead. Robert Bellamy starts to uncover why people are dying around him and what the 11 people really saw. This book was action pack form the beginning to the end. This is one of my favorite books.

I have to say this book was so well written. I can see why it got the Newberry Award. This is a futuristic story about a boy named Jonas who lives in a world were everything is controlled. How they talk, were they work, what they see, and who they marry. When Jonas turns 12 he is assigned the most important job in the community, Receiver of Memory.” His teacher the Giver, open his eyes up to the world he actually lives in.
Louis Lawry does a magnificent job at writing this story. The way she describes the memories, makes you think. I have not read a book like this before. I would have to say it is in my top ten much read books. This book is not a fast past book but it holds your attention. The whole concept of this book is what makes it out standing. There is talk that in 2011 there will be a movie out on this story.
