Writer's Block: A real eye opener

Which one book should everyone read, and why?


Unquestionably The Giver by Lois Lowry. It starts out seemingly normal and you think everything is all right. And then you learn the shape of this modern utopian society and the price paid for safety and security is more than we should be willing to lose. The price of absolute peace would be the loss of everything that makes us unique. The one (and eventually, two) people in society that know the truth of the past create a vivid contrast to the world we learn about in the book, and it is through their eyes we see ourselves and what we've done. To me the books speaks about celebrating our differences, and believing that there is a place where we can belong, if you search long and hard enough. It is one of the greatest books of our time, and one I think everyone should read.
