  • I really, truly enjoyed this book. It's quite difficult to explain the world in which it is set in, without spoiling it, but it makes sense once you begin!

  • Overall, this is a great book. It shows how important it is for us as humans to 'feel'. Humans do cause wars and chaos but the book gives an idea of a society where no one 'feels anything' and how that can only makes us like robots, it is not the right solution to the problems of chaos and destruction that we face in our world today.

  • The descriptions of the memories in this book is beautifully worked. Vivid and detailed and wrought with emotion...The best part of this book is Jonas receiving the memories and his honest reactions to them...The best part of this book is Jonas receiving the memories and his honest reactions to them.
