Top 5 Favorite Books - #5

As part of a series of posts, documenting my top 5 favorite books of all time.  What they are and why I love them.

#5 : The Giver

Jonas's world is perfect. Everything is under control. There is no war or fear of pain. There are no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the community. When Jonas turns 12 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.

Why I love it: I love the concept of this book, and it is so well written. If you want a book that will make you really think about the world around you, this is it! 

What are your top 5 favorite books of all time?
